At the USOpen.org Startpage i’ve seen a cool little flashbox with the latest Player Images and a short Image description of the active image. I thought it would be nice and useful to have a Javascript Version of this Box. So i’ve played around a little bit and here is the result. I call this thing EasyImageTour and you can use this script for Private and Commercial Projects for free (please just leave the Copyright notice in the JS Part).

Demo

You can find a demo of this script with a few Images of LasVegas here and another one with active autochange function here. I’ve put all required code in one single page – in the download section below you can download a nice structured demo (with external css and js files). A more „modern web2.0“ demo is coming soon.

There are 4 settings you can set in the Javascript File:

var imagepath = "images/"; // Set the path to your imagefolder
var startimage = 4;	//Set your Startimage (in this example image 4 would be visible at start
var autoplay = 1; // Should the images switch automatic on start?
var switchspeed = 2;  // If autoplay =1, set the time in seconds when the images should switch

  1. Just add as much images as you want. So if you want to add a 7th image write: <a href="big7.jpg" onmouseover="imageswitch(‚7‘);" onfocus="imageswitch(‚7‘);" onclick="return false;" title="imagedescription"><img src="small7.jpg" alt="imagedesscription" /></a>
