The Responsive Gridfolio has a fluid / flexible / responsive layout. Basically the grid is added into a html page into a div of your chosing and it’s adapting based of that div’s width, the grid height is modified based on the thumbnails and if other elements are below the grid div they will be pushed down automatically (document flow). In the examples provided you can see a few ways in which you might use this grid, of course that other configurations are possible (please note that the code of this examples is provided in the download files).
The gallery can have any number of images and each image can be of any size, but proportional to a base thumb width and height. When a thumbnail is pressed you can choose either to display an original media lightbox which we have coded, or to open a new webpage, the url and target of this webpage can be specified. The lightbox can display images, or can display videos loaded from YouTube or Vimeo.
The Responsive Gridfolio is using the GPU (hardware acceleration) using HTML5 standards. The rendering speed and performance is impeccable on desktop computers and most importantly on mobile devices, the way it works it will try to use CSS3 and if this is not available it will down fall to CSS2 or CSS1 for older browsers like IE7 and IE8.
Great performance on mobile devices, you can see in the video demo that it runs just like a native app!, it was coded and optimized for mobile devices and it is 100% mobile compatible and of course it will run just as great on desktop computers including on older browsers like IE7 and IE8. We have tested it on IPAD3(ios) and on a SAMSUNG GALAXY S3(android) and it runs great on both devices, below are the links to view this demos. Watch demo running on Samsung Galaxy S3 (android) or Watch demo running on IPAD (IOS).
Grid main features:
Support for any number of images and each image can be of any size, but proportional to a base thumb width and height

Customizable thumbnails size and geometry: this feature allows you to change the size of the thumbnails and the space between thumbnails.
Customizable thumbnails border and background: each thumbnail can have a border and a background, the thumbnail’s background color, the border’s size and the border’s color are customizable, also the thumbnails border color can be tweened from a normal color to a selected color..

“Load more thumbnails feature”: this is an awesome feature which improves the overall performance and speed of loading because in this way not all the thumbnails are loaded and displayed at once. For example if you have a total of 120 thumbnails you can show them in sets of 50 thumbnails, and so initially in the grid the first set of 50 thumbnails are loaded and displayed, and when the “load more thumbnails” button is pressed the next set of 50 thumbnails are loaded and displayed, and finally when the “load more thumbnails” button is pressed again the 20 remaining thumbnails are showed. The number of thumbnails to load per set is customizable, it does not have to be 50 it can be any number that you consider. This feature is optional, if it is disabled all thumbnails are loaded and displayed.
