Ajax photo Album

I was looking for an Ajax Image zoomer, but found this instead : http://piccy.dotimpac.to/ courtesy of Ajaxian.

It uses the combination effects in script.aculo.us to good effect allowing you to pick an image and zoom in and out of that image.

Must remember to grab the files and pull it apart to find out exactly how it works.


"A JSON Object must begin with '{' #(RuntimeError)"

Fantastic coding! ;)

You might want to look at LightBox as well: http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/

While ThickBox is more feature rich, I find the LightBox experience to be slightly better (IMO)

I am new to Ajax and found this page via google. I have a photography web site and what I want is to be able to downloading the images in the background so when the user click an image thumbnail the full-size image is already downloaded and ready to show. I tried to play with some sample AJAX tutorial code but was not able to find a way to download images without actually showing them.

@Yi: I'm assuming the reason that you want this is because of the lag between clicking the thumbnail and the time the Ajax requests finishes returning the full size image. You should look into image preloaders or perhaps loading your images into a hidden div so that they're instantly available to your users. On the jQuery list, there were some discussions about image preloading that you might find useful:
