Clever Customization Turns Thumbnail Galleries Into Beautiful Image Montages

Web developer and photographer Nicholas Sherlock came up with a pretty cool customization recently. Inspired by Flickr’s image montage layout that does proper justice to landscape and portrait photos alike, he took a stab at writing some code that does the exact same thing to any thumbnail gallery.

He chose to implement and test out the idea first with SmugMug’s thumbnail galleries, because they’re so darn small. After putting together the code, he managed to turn a gallery that looks like this:

Into something that’s a lot more enjoyable to look at:

Even though he designed the code around SmugMug’s gallery, any gallery that doesn’t feature right-click protection could be converted properly by the code. The only other limitation is that his code doesn’t yet support pagination, but he’s willing to add it if people express enough interest.

You can check out a live demo over on his website by clicking here. Or, if you want to go ahead and try it out yourself (it’s only in beta, so implement at your own risk) you can find all of the necessary code and instructions over on the Digital Grin forum here.
