How to Use Image Gallery with Thumbnails and Zoom

To getting started with jQuery Responsive Image Gallery with Thumbnails you need to load the jQuery, AlloyFinger and other necessary assets into your HTML page.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.4.0.min.js"></script>

<!-- AlloyFinger JS -->
<script src="lib/AlloyFinger/alloy_finger.min.js"></script>

<!-- LC Lightbox Js -->
<script src="js/lc_lightbox.lite.js"></script>

After that, you need to add the CSS’s assets. There are two CSS files that you need to add to your website. The first one will handle the design layout for the lightbox and the other one apply the skins.

<!-- LC Lightbox CSS -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/lc_lightbox.css" />

<!-- Skin CSS -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="skins/minimal.css" />

Now we need to create the HTML structure for the image gallery. Simply define an anchor link with a class name elem and add the image path inside the “href”.

There are different data-attribute that allow you to customize the gallery.  You can add the heading in the title attribute.

For the description you can use the data-lcl-txt attribute. Similar you can add the author name in the data-lcl-author attribute.  If you want to show the thumbnails then you can define the path inside the data-lcl-thumb attribute.
