Googling around for a jQuery carousel the other day, I found that the market consisted of literally tons of solutions, many of which were not open source and actually required you to pay to use them! This was a huge change from I first created my original jQuery carousel project because there was almost nothing to be found back then. The lack of quality caused me to go back and dust off my old project and bring it up to standards, while of course keeping it as free, open source, and easy to implement as always.

This one is in the demo, and it's in the form of a filmstrip of pictures from my trip to Qingdao.
Here is the HTML to set that up:
I rewrote the project using coffeescript this time, so all of the comments are there if you want to see how it works. I highly recommend taking a look and changing things to suit your project if it lies beyond this initial scope.
