|One of the great things about the web is that it gives artists an inexpensive way to display their artwork Ė the web gallery or slideshow. In the past, it used to be a lot of work to create a gallery or slideshow, even with software such as PhotoshopR. But now, thanks to Ajax and JQuery, we have new tools for creating image galleries and slideshows.|
Basically, you put the images that you wish to be in your gallery in a folder on your site and add a few lines of code to your webpage. The JQuery plugin grabs the images and displays them in a professional-looking layout.
You can find many JQuery plugins on the web by doing a GoogleTM search. Some of the common features that you might need are discussed below.
