The Looking Glass (V3) Linked XML Image Gallery
July 31, 2009 Update – Option to control the movement speed added to the XML .
A simple, easy-to-use, and unique XML image gallery that fits all window sizes. You can have as many images as you want. Images scroll from left to right depending on horizontal mouse position. On rollover, the images quick-zoom into the center and show descriptions. On click, it will link out. All controlled by a simple XML file. In the XML , you can change the width and height of the images, the descriptions, and where the mouse click will link out to, as well as the target of the link.
Note: Images can be any size you wish, but all the images in the file must be the same size (otherwise, they will just be cropped). You set the size of your images in the XML .
