GalleryJack Rebooted - A jQuery Fullscreen Gallery

GalleryJack Rebooted - A jQuery Fullscreen Gallery

In my first 4 years here at Envato, the original GalleryJack turned out to be my most successful file. And even though it has many features, I always felt that it had potential to be even better. So for the past few months I decided to rewrite the original from scratch and this time add twice as many features. Thumbnails were added, an HTML5 Audio Player was built along with a custom HTML5 Video Player. But where “Reboot” really shines is in the custom user settings. And the number of settings along with which ones chosen were really a compilation of 7 months of buyer feedback from the first version. It’s super flexible, it’s heavily tested, it’s GalleryJack: The Reboot. And thanks for checking it out :)
