    To implement such layout, I recommend to create thumbnails manually and initialize and create slider dynamically only after you click on one of them.

    Hi, i'm looking for something like this to. It would be great to have a strip of sliding thumbnails of projects and clicking on one of them would open the enlarged images of the project, in a slider. In your answer the thumbnails would't be sliding or am i wrong?

    Yep, in my solution thumbnails aren't sliding.

    If you wish to hide main slide area and leave just thumbnail, the only options is to apply CSS hacks (e.g. display:none to slides). But main slides will be loaded and silently animated anyway, so I'm not sure if this is appropriate solution.

    I'm also looking for a similar solution. I've made some progress but still have a few questions.

    1. How do I bind my own click event when a thumb is clicked?
    2. How do I remove the green highlight for selected thumbnails?

    1. You can just bind jQuery click event after slider initialization.
    2. Any styling can be changed via CSS.

    I'm displaying my thumbnails manually above a hidden slider element already initialized.

    How to open the slider full screen for the image selected? Then user can browse all images in full screen.

    What is the API call for a particular image that will open the slider full-screen on that image?

    @efs, enter fullscreen manually via javascript, init and stretch slider to 100% width and height of window and set position fixed on it.

    Thanks, Dmitry, but how do I open a specific slide when entering full screen manually? I have 10 small images displayed -- when I click on one, I will unhide the slider already initialized, BUT how to open the slider with the right image (not from the beginning)?

    @efs, initialize slider only after you need to display it and use startSlideId option, or use this method
