J Query Lightbox Image gallery
We’re going to create a jQuery image gallery. We will be creating some class attributes and inserting a Polaroid effect background image with a layered alpha transparency drop shadow. We will then attach the JQuery Light box plug-in and when a visitor clicks upon one of the thumbnail images, a larger version of the image will animate into the center stage of your website using the image gallery script.
The web visitor can then choose whether to cycle throughout the rest of the photo image gallery by clicking on the previous or next buttons, or can view each image individually.

Columns in Greece
Statue of Liberty
A Night Owl
