I have had several requests for a gallery/slideshow that can cope with different sized images, adjusting the size of the gallery to fit the large images.

So this is my attempt at such a gallery/slideshow.

Click any thumbnail to close the current large image, resize the large image area then show the new image in this resized area.

I have three image sets of six thumbnails in this demo, so click the three tabs at the bottom of the gallery to slide each set into view.

Animation is visible in IE10, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera. IE9 will see an instant change of images.

The next demo is the same as this one but with the thumbnails and sets tabs at the top of the large images.
