I've recently had to do a website for a client. She had a lot of really creative ideas and wanted some nice effects. Initially I thought to be able to create the effects she wanted I would have to use Silverlight or Flash. Neither of them I am that familiar with.
Plugins I used:
The lightBox plugin was used to display the pictures in the gallery. This had great flexibility to resize the images and had a really classy feel and suited the website perfectly.
Oh yes, please check out the site and let me know what you think... link
