MegaGallery: Introduction

In the MegaGallery project, I decided I needed a quicker and easier way to create photo galleries. I wanted to stay away from Flash, Java, and Silverlight. Most of the script based galleries were bulky or complicated. Any previous gallery templates I had created took a lot of work creating thumbnails, etc. I knew Slimbox was a great way to display images. I combed the pages of the PHP API for answers to many of my image manipulation needs. In the next several blog entries, I will share with you my research, process, and results on this project.

My goal for this project is to make the photo gallery reusable and easy to implement.

We will be using jQuery, Slimbox for jQuery, and PHP for this project. We may use other jQuery plug-ins as needed.
