an inline lightbox alternative with slideshow
Though the script is quick and easy to setup, it offers great flexibility in both behaviour and styling.
jQuery.popeye takes a different approach: not only allows it for browsing all thumbnails as well as the large images in a single image space, it also repects the page flow and stays anchored and rooted in the webpage at all times, thus giving a less disruptive user experience than modal windows.
jquery.popeye is released under the terms of the GPL 2.0. You can use it free of charge, change it or build upon it however you like.
If you really, really like the plugin and consider it worth a couple of bucks, you can donate whatever you like via PayPal.
