Spacegallery: image gallery/slideshow made with jQuery

There are many types of galleries for images that can be found on the internet, but we rarely find one displaying images so differently like this one. Those using Mac OS X will surely notice a lot of similarity with Time Machine and those who don't, I'm sure will enjoy this type of effect for viewing images.

SpaceGallery is a JQuery based slideshow / image gallery that performs overlaying in a visually appealing manner and provides a smooth fade out effect to images. This 3D image gallery lets you float through your pictures easily by enlarging them with an Apple-like animation.

Note: if you have already jQuery in your template, please delete the line in red.

Step 4. Next, search (CTRL + F) for this tag:
]]></b:skin>
Step 5. Above the ]]></b:skin> tag, paste the following CSS style:
#myGallery {
width: 100%;
height: 400px;
}
#myGallery img {
border: 2px solid #52697E;
}
a.loading {
background: url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Ydp4sEJnaA8/UmzUYmPuLNI/AAAAAAAAEbw/9O8Qa2gV2Cc/s1600/ajax_small.gif) no-repeat center;
}
.spacegallery {
position: relative;
overflow: hidden;
}
.spacegallery img {
position: absolute;
left: 50%;
}
.spacegallery a {
position: absolute;
z-index: 1000;
display: block;
top: 0;
left: 0;
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
}
Step 6. Hit the Save template button to save the changes.

Step 7. Finally, go to Layout > Add a Gadget > HTML/Javascript and copy-paste the code below:
<div class="spacegallery" id="myGallery">
<img src="Image URL"/>
<img src="Image URL"/>
<img src="Image URL"/>
<img src="Image URL"/>
<img src="Image URL"/>
</div>
Replace the Image URL text with the image addresses that you want to appear on the gallery, considering that the last image is the first to be displayed.

If you want to add this slideshow inside a post, go to your dashboard and create a New Post, then paste the code in the HTML section.

That's it! Now, you can enjoy this simple image gallery on your blog and although, it has no display options or settings, it is without a doubt a gallery that will draw the attention of your readers.

  5. This is awsome! I would love to use this, but as I took the photo urls from my blog (where photos are all different sizes) and made a widget out of them, the photos are shown only partly. So - what is the photo size requirement??? To be able to make this work. I would love to use this, but now I just can't as only a small part of the photo is seen. Thanks in advance for your help! Bette

    1. Please go to the HTML of your post or widget where you have the URLs of your pics and see if they have this part /s1600/ (it could be of any other value, it's important to have the s (from size) in front of it). You need to replace the 1600 value with 310. If you want to be of a larger size, you will need to change the height of the container as well (400px from #myGallery { )

      If you don't have that part, add the attributes in bold inside the HTML structure of your pic:
      <img src="Image URL" height="300px" width="400px" />

      I hope this will work for you ;)

  6. Hi admin,
