I'm currently building a photography/art website using Ian Lloyd's 'build your own website...' book. The final piece of the jigsaw is to build the gallery and I wanted to produce something similar to this:
I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction as to how I can produce this, or where I can learn to create it?
Thanks. Any help much appreciated.
(Apologies to the moderators if I've posted this in the wrong section).

Hi Kristeva. Welcome to the forums.

Yes, I always test that. Sometimes it's just a matter of a few CSS tweaks to ensure that. If I can't do that with CSS, I don't use the script. (I'm not sure I've tested all the links above for that, though. BX Slider is easily made accessible, though.)

Sorry, I wasn't very clear in my previous post. I quoted you, but was addressing Kristeva - the site in the first post just shows a blank page without JS.

Nah, I understood that, but it's also relevant to the ones I posted. I normally categorize them in my lists as ones that can or can't be made accessible ... but just chose at random for that list above, so can't guarantee they all pass from that standpoint.

cool, thanks guys. I'll sift through those links.
So I assume the style of gallery i linked to is called a 'slider'? That's all I need really, something as simple as that.
Thanks for the welcome btw.

There are two common terms—"slider" and "carousel"—although these involve the content/images literally sliding across the screen, rather than fading in and out. So unless you want the images to slide, you might need to do a wider search like "single image jQuery paged image gallery" or similar.

If you right-click on the image, you'll find it was created entirely in Flash. If you want that exact effect, you'll need to buy Flash from Adobe and learn to use it. However, it won't work on mobile devices such as the iPhone, so you'll turn away some viewers.
