Use Galleria to Build a Photo Portfolio
Galleria is in a constant state of refinement, so new features may have been added by the time you read this. The already existing features are quite nice, though. (Galleria is free to download and try out, but if you enjoy using it, you should consider making a contribution.)
After you set up your page for Galleria, you can choose to have your photos display in a limited space or choose full-screen mode. You can also add captions, make thumbnails display in a swirling carousel, and even set up a Flickr feed so that your site pulls in photos that have attributes (such as roadside diners) that you specify.
When you create a gallery with Galleria (or any jQuery-based plug-in), you should include a link to the jQuery library on your web page. Alternatively, you can download and install jQuery on your server, but it’s simpler to link to one of the popular hosts, such as Google, that make it easy to access the jQuery library on the Internet.
