I'm not sure what this type of portfolio/gallery is called, but I need to figure out how to create one in Drupal. Here is an example: http://ow.ly/lrJj9

I basically need a gallery page that has thumbnails, titles, and short descriptions, where clicking on a thumbnail makes a panel with more info and the full sized image slide in (or pop up).

I'm wondering what the best way to approach this would be. Are there any modules that will help, or does this require custom programming?

Thanks in advance!

Understanding taxonomy plus views is all you need. No programming needed. Just look up some tutorials about views and taxonomy and google for these terms including image portfolio drupal and you will soon find a number of tutorials

I understand how views & taxonomy would work for sorting content into separate galleries, but I am not sure how to achieve the sliding "panel" with the larger image & text like the example link in my post.

what do you mean with sliding "panel"? I do not see anything special.

I'm referring to what happens when you click on a thumbnail image. The way the image and text show up out of nowhere and slide into place.

Looking at the site it seems they wrote some custom jQuery to achieve this effect. Have you looked into the jQuery UI module? The 'Show' effect may suit your needs.

Thanks, I will look into that.
