The gallery is created using the jQuery Colorbox plugin which is very versatile and popular. This version has been modified to generate the thumbnail s from the full size images. This allows images of different aspect ratios to be used while keeping the thumbnails iniform to fit the grid.
The thumbnail caption slides up on hover and will scroll if the caption length is wider than the thumbnail image. The large image caption is shown in the tooltip.
The lightbox image can have a different caption and a color border. The lightbox overlay opacity is adjustable.
The images in the grid can be arrange in rows and columns by adjusting the widget width and height using the drag handles and then fine tuning using the metrics inspector.
Drag the images in a group from a Finder folder onto the Assets list in the widget settings or choose them individually from the main Assets list.
Highlight each image file name in turn to add the thumbnail and large image captions.
