    Unhappy Website Gallery Design - HELP!

    HI Everyone,

    I have been working with an artist who has requested a very specific style to her new image gallery. Her current site is on Wordpress and she doesn't want to change so here is what I'm faced with.

    She has expressed strongly that she would like a gallery just like the one found on a fellow artist's site, as shown here: Kay Kemp :: Portfolio

    The features she wants are as follows
    1. The main page, the images can be grouped according to subject/topic
    2. When you click on any image, it opens the image on a transparent canvas so you can see the background of the site
    3. Also when you click on the image it is made larger so you can view it better
    4. Lastly, there isn't anthing automatic about the forward and backward progression of the images - there simply are buttons with "next" and "previous"


    She is very adament about not having a light box and it not being fancy. She really wants simple and believe it or not I rarely have clients request such simple things.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how I do this? Better yet, is there are plug-in, extension, software or do I need to build this myself?

    I'm so frustrated!

    Thanks for your time,
    Martiel

    PS: I realize this may be in the wrong area, I'm new, please let me know where it should be and i"ll be sure to relocated it. Thanks!

    This one has 6 viewing options ... I believe there is at least one that doesn't use lightbox.
