Zoomgallery is a tiny jQuery plugin used to create a thumbnail grid that expands into a full sized image slider when you click on a thumbnail.

How to use it:

1. Load jQuery library and the jQuery Zoomgallery plugin's files in your html page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="Zoomgallery.min.css">
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="jQuery.Zoomgallery.min.js"></script>

2. Load the Font Awesome 4 for essential icons.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="font-awesome.min.css">

3. Create the html for the thumbnail grid. Make sure to use the data-image attribute to specify the sources of original images, and the data-thumbnail attribute to specify the sources of thumbnails.

<div class="zoomgallery">
  <div class="zoomgallery-inner">
    <div class="zoomgallery-row">
      <a href="#" class="zoomgallery-item">
        <div class="zoomgallery-image" 
             data-image="1.jpg" 
             data-thumbnail="1_thumb.jpg">
        </div>
      </a> 
      <a href="#" class="zoomgallery-item">
        <div class="zoomgallery-image" 
             data-image="2.jpg" 
             data-thumbnail="2_thumb.jpg">
        </div>
      </a>
      ...
    </div>
    <div class="zoomgallery-row">
      <a href="#" class="zoomgallery-item">
        <div class="zoomgallery-image" 
             data-image="3.jpg" 
             data-thumbnail="3_thumb.jpg">
        </div>
      </a> 
      <a href="#" class="zoomgallery-item">
        <div class="zoomgallery-image" 
             data-image="4.jpg" 
             data-thumbnail="4_thumb.jpg">
        </div>
      </a>
      ...
    </div>
    <div class="zoomgallery-menu">
      <div class="close"> 
        <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-times"></i></a> 
      </div>
      <div class="next"> 
        <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-chevron-right"></i></a> 
      </div>
      <div class="previous">
        <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-chevron-left"></i></a> 
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
