Photopile JS

Photopile JS is a JavaScript/jQuery image gallery that simulates a pile of photos scattered about on a surface. Thumbnail clicks remove photos from the pile, (enlarging them as if being picked up by the user), and once in view a secondary click returns the photo to the pile. Thumbnails are draggable, enhancing the experience by allowing photos buried deep in the pile to be uncovered.

Demo: https://bri.how/project/photopile/demo.html

Usage

Include in your project:

  • jQuery
  • jQuery UI

Add gallery markup:

<div class="photopile-wrapper">

      </a>
    </li>
    <!-- Add as many list items as you require for your gallery :) -->
  </div>
