    Is it? I don't think so! I have used Jalbum and it does allow you to create photo albums to post on the web, but the flash used to create this effect on the Bugatti website is a lot more sophisticated. I would have thought it was done with a later version of flash using some action scripts to get the images to pop up in a new window whilst screening the older one.

    Jalbum is a web service not a software pack

    That gallery seems to be making extensive use of jQuery, a JavaScript library that helps with snazzy AJAX stuff. Have a look at the source code for the page you linked to, it looks quite well-written and should give you an idea of how it works.

    The image-fading banner at the top of the page is done with Flash. I'd guess that a Google search for a Flash-based gallery creation tool will probably turn up several options. SWiSH is one, that might do what you want.

    Where are you planning to place the gallery - somewhere on a web page?

    I'm making a website for a friend he saw this and asked if I could do something similar. You are right the search for this has provided endless options on gallery creators. I have had a look at the code but cannot decipher it. I though it used asp like this site

    Modern Kitchens from Everest

    but don't really understand how that works

    I have emailed the people at bugatti but they were reluctant to help

    The search goes on

    Ah - some confusion here. The pop-up image effects, even on that kitchens website, are via client-side JavaScript - in that case, using the Lightbox.js library. The "site" itself may well be written server-side using ASP, but popups and so on are done in JavaScript. This is something that modern software development has failed to work out yet - how to get rid of the mishmash of languages, tags and server/client-side paradigms that make up the average web page these days.

    Go take a look at Lightbox (just type lightbox.js into Google), that might get you started.

    This could be helpful - There are few different ways of using flash highlighted on this website.

    Whatever it is, it's broken on FF3 + Debian Lenny.

    Lightbox is another you may want to look at.

    lightbox/lightbox2 is fab. Looks really impressive and is really simple to implement. Lightbox 2 can create click through galleries. The only thing it doesn't do is create the preview images/page which you can very easily hand craft or code in asp/php/whatever.
