  • If you're a novice you probably want a click-and-use solution, so I'd suggest the Ajatix LightBox Add-In, see http://www.ajatix.com/lightbox/expression-web-add-in.html which costs about $50 but is very easy to use

    If you are happy to work with some code you can use the jQuery ResponsiveSlides addin. See

  • There are scores of image rotators available out there, the vast majority of which are free. As Ian noted, there are commercial solutions if you're prepared to pay for them.

    For the fade effect that you refer to in your example page, I personally like Innerfade. You can see it in action at this site (the rotating images on the left side of the first three pages). Like many such solutions, you simply create an unordered list and put whatever you want to rotate in the list items (<li> elements). Since <li>s are unrestricted block elements (unlike paragraphs, which may not contain other block elements), they can contain anything else you want, like divs, descriptive caption paragraphs, etc., and can be styled using ordinary CSS. After looking at Responsive Slides, it appears to be set up very similarly, and I would imagine that pretty much any jQuery solution you find would be, as well.  ;-)
