Simple Lightbox

Simple Lightbox swiper

A winner. Thumbnails appear in a masonry effect and it works with two galleries or more galleries too. Or, version 2 with horizontal masonry using simple ul and li - which is ok as long as you don't mind losing some image top and bottom..

Swipebox gallery

Multiple galleries the nice feature of this touch capable gallery. Added a CSS masonry effect for the thumbnails which makes it a lot more useable. Refined by Mosne to achieve better lightbox aesthetics. Note: A workaround for the .js file will be needed to avoid a 'loop' of background images when trying to close the swiper. "Scobbleme's" solution seems to work AND then I had to add the following line: location.reload(true); otherwise the window was unable to be scrolled after closing it down. This causes the page to reload every time the gallery closes... NOT GOOD! Around line 606 of the jquery file I had to add:

closeSlide : function () { $( 'html' ).removeClass( 'swipebox-html' ); $( 'html' ).removeClass( 'swipebox-touch' ); $( window ).trigger( 'resize' ); location.reload(true); this.destroy(); if(event){ event.preventDefault(); } },


Based on Swipebox byBrutal Design.


Justiswipe Flickr slider

Quite file-intensive but it ticks all the boxes. Best so far. Supports albums (and multiple albums on one page), captions, swipe capable and uses the very tidy justified.js for thumbnail layout and the photoswipe.js libraries for function. Not a bad page download time either, only 1.2 seconds for intial load on Chrome!

Aino Flickr-feed Galleria

Aino Flickr Galleria slider

Caution - won't load on mobile devices after modification? A super gallery / slider that pulls images from your flickr photoset (not just the author). Simply upload your photos to your flickr account, create a set and let us know the set number. Includes a info (caption) from filename. Organise the order that they appear in by modifying in Flickr Organiser. Fullscreen now as modified by Piccante recently. The only down side? No swipe capability, but the other benefits must outweight this?

Galleriffic viewer

Galleriffic viewer

A really versatile gallery viewer... instead of using thumbnails to view the larger image we can replace these with links (text based).

jQuery 1.3.2

Original code by Trent Foley



Very capable slider that is demonstrated on our Riverside Accommodation website. Thumbnails created automatically from a folder on the web (not Flickr or other feed) - so it will require the ability for the user to FTP to an album folder.


Nice job by Foliopages.

Trung Ho Masonry-style Flickr-feed Galleria

Trung Ho Flickr Feed slider

A nice gallery using masonry style display that pulls images from a Flickr account. Easy to set up and get the API. Downside at the moment - doesn't support albums (have to load from the Flickr 'author' account) and there is no caption support at the moment. The "lightbox" has been trimmed down and is now good - great because it is swipe supported in fact.

Sideways image viewer

Sideways viewer

An impressive gallery that really does occupy the entire screen. Not suitable for users with dial-up connections... are there any still out there?!?! The launch version of this gallery was a bit buggy, but we've included it because we hope that improvements will be made to stabilise the script.
