 A good choice for small slideshows; slideshows containing too many image or images with overlarge file sizes will cause the Javascript to time out and the gallery to return errors. A good choice for small slideshows; slideshows containing too many image or images with overlarge file sizes will cause the Javascript to time out and the gallery to return errors.

 A horizontal-scrolling gallery, the Horizon gallery is a good choice for those using TTG CE2 Horizon for their image galleries elsewhere on the site, as it will provide a greeting presentation consistent with your other galleries. The gallery can handle any number of images, but loads all images into the page at once, so keeping the gallery to small set of images will help to maintain a manageable load time for your Home page. I recommend keeping your image count to less than 20-25 images of reasonable file size for web, though you can load more if you absolutely cannot cull your image collect to such numbers. Just keep in mind you can show off as much of your work as you like elsewhere on the site; the Home page gallery is only meant to greet visitors with a representative collection of your best images. A horizontal-scrolling gallery, the Horizon gallery is a good choice for those using TTG CE2 Horizon for their image galleries elsewhere on the site, as it will provide a greeting presentation consistent with your other galleries.

 A good choice for larger slideshows, as images will load dynamically as needed. Playback works nicely on mobile phones, though Photoswipe lacks Galleria's double-tap to full-screen feature. A good choice for larger slideshows, as images will load dynamically as needed.

 Does not work in IE7. This is not a problem for me -- to hell with bad, old browsers -- but some users may understandably take issue with this. If the lack of IE7 support is a problem, use the Galleria or Horizon options. Does not work in IE7.
