This was a site I built to spec for a friend from art school. It’s a very simple design using a small jQuery gallery plugin for the images. The thumbnails are hidden until the link is hovered over.
He wanted this to be a very minimal portfolio site and to have the capability of changing the images in and the order of the galleries. The solution was a very small PHP script that looked for a TXT file containing the file names and order of the images in each gallery. All he has to do us upload the images, change the TXT file for the corresponding gallery and voila! Updated.
