1. Introduction Check other free modules of us
Carrousel Flow is a Ready-to-Use-and-Deploy ajax image Gallery application which allows an intuitive image handling. The basic idea is to digitally animate the thumbing through a physical image stack. The intuitive handling is automatically caused by the metaphorical use of the well known process of thumbing through.
This solution is known as the Cover Flow technique. Now - after it has been bought by Apple - it is used in iTunes and the file browser of Apples Os.
There are two modules in this package: ”Carrousel Flow Gallery” and “Carrousel Flow Category”. 'Carrousel flow gallery” module is used to display gallery and “Carrousel Flow Category” module is used to provide category list navigation for gallery module instance.
