    Image Two

Each “li” above represents an image. The “h3″ content becomes the title for the image and the “p” the description. The “span” content is the path to the fullsize image. If you want to link the image wrap an “a” tag around the “img” tag which is the thumbnail image.

The following are the parameters that can be set on the object… more complete documentation will follow soon. Default values are displayed as (10) and recommended values as [1-20].

Images

imgSpeed = int; (10)
navOpacity = int; (25)
navHover = int; (70)
letterbox = “string”; (#000) required color for letterbox on portrait images
link = “string”; class name for link hover state

Auto Slideshow

auto = boolean; (false)
speed = int; (10)

Information Dialog

info = boolean; (true)
infoID = “string”; required for information dialog
infoSpeed = int; (10)

Thumbnail Slider

thumbs = “string”; id of thumbnail slider, disabled if not set
scrollSpeed = int; [1-20] (5)
thumbOpacity = int; [0-100] (70)
active = “string”; required for thumbnail active border
spacing = int; (5) spacing between thumbnails
left = “string”; id of left navigation link, required for slider
right = “string”; id of right navigation link, required for slider

calling the script…

var slideshow=new TINY.slideshow("slideshow");
window.onload=function(){
slideshow.auto=true;
slideshow.speed=5;
slideshow.link="linkhover";
slideshow.info="information";
slideshow.thumbs="slider";
slideshow.left="slideleft";
slideshow.right="slideright";
slideshow.scrollSpeed=4;
slideshow.spacing=5;
slideshow.active="#fff";
slideshow.init('slideshow','image','imgprev','imgnext','imglink');
}

The init function takes 5 parameters (id of the slideshow content placeholder, the id of the image placeholder, the id of the previous image placeholder, the id of the next image placeholder, the id of the image link placeholder).

This script has been tested in all major browsers
