As part of the Apple announcements yesterday they showed off a new .Mac Web Gallery that uses Prototype and Script.aculo.us to give you a rich web view of your photos.
Shaun Trennery blogged about the features:
The main page is a collection of album thumbnails that change as the user hovers over them. The powerful effect allows the user to quickly scan through the albumâ€™s photos without the need for a single click.
Once within an album, the photos are displayed in either a grid, mosaic, carousel or a slideshow. The user can quickly change the background colour, resize the photo thumbnails and subscribe to the galleries RSS feed. The carousel view is the same as the cover-flow album art display that iTunes and the new iPhone uses. Once the photoâ€™s are fully loaded, its performance is really slick.
Very slick indeed.
