I have a request to do a site where the photos on the homepage are arranged, so that the don 't align evenly. Kind of in a circle. Is it possible to use css? I was thinking flash or one big image.
I've set up an example of a circular layout here (well, kindof, with a little tweaking...). I haven't browser testet it though but it's a start. You should be able to build some kind of formula for positioning based on the radius of the circle and the width of the images, feel free to do the math :)
It works like this:
It's important to remember that you should try to keep the semantics intact. A gallery is often "a list of linked images", and therefore it should be a
<ol>) with just that, an
<img>. Alltough I admit that in the example code I've provided above has some unsemantic class-names.
My other option would be with flash. When the images are rolled over, a popup with film title and year will appear then will link to a full page with the movie and description.
