Jquery Image Gallery with CSS3 Transitions – Photobox

Photobox is a very light weight CSS3 photo and video gallery plugin with jquery. Which uses a lightweight image gallery and a  modal window script which uses only CSS3 for silky-smooth animations and transitions . Photobox utilizes GPU rending, which can be completely controlled and themed directly from the CSS.


Supports: FirefoxChrome and IE8+
