Mosaiqy is a jQuery plugin designed by Fabrizio Calderan that displays a number of photos in a grid format. The plugin allows viewers to zoom in on a specific image in the plugin window and rearranges the images on the grid to fit the enlarged photos. To save processing requirements, the plugin relies on CSS transitions to handle the tasks of animating and zooming in on the images. The plugin is compatible for Opera 9+, Firefox 3.6+, Safari 3.2+, Chrome and IE7+ browsers and can integrate with popular photo sharing services such as Flickr, Instagram and others.
