Has anyone seen any tutorials that do something similar to these two examples...

How to integrate jQuery Galleria and jCarousel

Create a custom jQuery photo gallery with jCarousel

However, the slideshow ideally has to use one/same image for the thumbnail and larger image in the gallery and have a hover option for the thumbnails.

So basically a thumbnail carrousel slideshow using one image for both with options to have it vertically or horizontally with a hover aspect?

Anyone point me in the right direction?

Many thanks if you can
