Image flow is inspired by Apple’s cover flow. The javascript renders the cover flow effect without any noticeable flaw. Keyboard navigation (arrow keys), mouse scroll and dragging is supported. Very cool script to use.


  • XHTML compliant
  • Keyboard and Mouse scroll wheel navigation supported
  • Free to use on any site
  • No dependencies
  • small in size (Only 11 KB uncompressed)


Dependencies None
Size 11KB (Uncompressed)
Restrictions None (Free to use on any site)

For demo and download, please check the links

Open | Open in new window

The above demo opens images in another tab/window. Means no lightbox support. But lightbox support can be integrated. Please check the links below

Open | Open in new window

    great script thanks – ive used it on my site and have taken the slider controls off, is it possible to then get the content to automatically loop round and round, instead of having 2 ends?

  6. Akif says:

    Hi, it looks awsome, in demo page it is written that commercial usage is not free but in this page Restrictions : None (Free to use on any site). Which is true? Thanks right now..

    Does any one know the max number of photos this works for. I’m looking for something that will work for 100+ photos

  8. moopet says:

    “Free to use on any site”, you say
    The demo you link to says “you need the author’s permission to use ImageFlow on commercial websites. You get this permission by purchasing a commercial license.”

  9. Excellent.

    I looking for that plugin for a long time.



  10. Daniel says:

    Search for eternal, I’m finally came across your site and am happy to have rediscovered the image flow.

    Had views and forget the name …

    Think it’s great, there really is the possibility that it runs automatically and not click?

    Best Regards Daniel

  13. Sakie says:

    I was wondering if I can place image flow in some fixed width and height container

    My Problem is that I’ve a container of dimension 510 X 434 and I’ve to show about 15 images in it each with dimension 230 X 300 px . When I incorporate image flow into it it automatically reduces the width and height of the images so that they fit in the container. I don’t want it to happen I’ve even hardcoded the maxHeight as follows

    //this.maxHeight = Math.round(my.imagesDivWidth / my.aspectRatio);
    this.maxHeight = 434;

  14. Sakie says:

    Please append to previous post
    I’m desperately looking for a solution. I want the imge that comes to front to be of actual dimensions i.e 230 X 300 where as the sliding images my be of variable sizes.

    *** Please Help ***

    Hello Everyone;
    I wud like to help you out guys as there are many people who had a problem of not getting an image in slider ;

    ImageFlow needs a PHP server running a GD library to generate the reflections. It will work without PHP if you disable the reflections.

    For Setting up No reflections You need to make changes in Two places
    1) imageflow.js
    2) imageflow.packed.js

    you will find two lines within the domReady function in both files:

    Here it is ;
    var instanceOne = new ImageFlow();
    instanceOne.init({ ImageFlowID: ‘myImageFlow’ });

    So Make Changes like this in both files;


    var instanceOne = new ImageFlow();
    instanceOne.init({ ImageFlowID: ‘myImageFlow’,
    reflections: false,
    reflectionP: 0.0 });

    & Your Task is Done !!
    Thanks !! Cheeeeeers – Ali :)
