What is the best "image carousel" plug in?

Hi Guys

I have a row of book cover images on this page

http://michellemagorian.com/wpnewwebsite/

And want an arrow point left and one pointing right that will scroll through the book images like a carousel.

I would also like to link each image to an external URL

Whats the best way of doing this?

Many thanks
Steve

Dear Steve Watson,

I think http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jj-nextgen-jquery-carousel/ that's the best one.

P.S: It's also working with NextGen Gallery

best regards,

Hi Steve,

I use Lightbox Gallery (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/lightbox-gallery/) for many of my sites. Have a look at it in action over here:

It's easy to set up and configure, and you can style the borders and colours as you wish.

All the best
Sean
