Yet another gallery plugin. I was looking for a simple gallery where you can select a thumbnail, see the complete picture in a acceptable size but also have the oppertunity to see the details of the image. I searched the web for a way to do this and found the AnythingZoomer, a jQuery Plugin by Chris Coyier. I used this jquery plugin for this WordPress plugin.
It works well for e-commerce sites like webshops or as a photo gallery.
It is easy to adapt if you would want to, but the default behaviour should be very much usable by anybody.
There is a settingspage to customize the images used and wheter or not to overwrite the default gallery shortcode.
If you want to use this gallery, simply use the “superzoomgallery” shortcode in your post or page, or enable the overwriting of the gallery shortcode and use the default wordpress “gallery” shortcode in your post or page.
For best results, make sure your theme is wide enough for the gallery.
The site I created this plugin for is http://www.liekebieke.nl, a dutch webshop with handmade designer bags and other things. It is used to enable the visitors to view the details of the products.
This plugin is hosted in the official WordPress repository, so you can download it!
Here is a little demo with some pictures from Iceland, Wroclaw in Poland and a couple of fighter jets (what more could you want).
