Question: Have you ever wanted to neatly display a few lines of text about an image in your site but didn’t want to compromise on the design of your overall layout?we'll going to show you how to create a useful information-rich jQuery Image Gallery that solves that problem. The best part of it is that it’s so simple to write up that all you’ll need are jQuery’s excellent .hover() and .animate() functions to get it up and running.

HTML for the gallery:

<div class="galleryContainer">
<div class="galleryImage">
      <img src="images/image01.jpg">
<div class="info">

CSS:

 

.galleryContainer
{
width: 1024px;
}
.galleryImage {
     background-color:black;
     width:325px;
     height:260px;
     overflow:hidden;
     margin:5px;
     float:left;
}
.info{
margin-left:10px;
font-family:arial;
padding:3px;
}
.info h2{
color:gray;
}
.info p {
color:white
}
.clear {
clear:both;
margin-top:10px;
}

 

jQuery:

 

$(document).ready(function()
{
 $('.galleryImage').hover(
  function()
  {

  $(this).find('img').animate(
                  { width:100,
                    marginTop:10,
                    marginLeft:10
                  }, 500);

   },
   function()
   {

    $(this).find('img').animate(
                   {width:325,
                    marginTop:0,
                    marginLeft:0
                  },300);

   });
});

 

and that’s it!. By using jQuery’s always-useful animate() and hover() functions we’re able to define simple behaviours that shrink the size of the overall image and re-position it for more information to be visible.
