I need a simple onclick fade image to another, concept might look like this

function crossFade(new_image){
      $("#old_image").crossFade('new_image');      
}


I know corssFade is not a jquery function, but should be! Basically I would need a function that I could fade one #main image to another src and do it in a cross fade manner. Any ideas?

               $('#old_image').fadeOut(100, function(){
                        $('#new_image').fadeIn(100);                                          
                });

Close, Here is what I have

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
      $(".changeto").click(function(){
            $('#main').fadeOut(100, function(){
                  $("#main").attr('src',$(this).attr('hover'));
                  $('#main').fadeIn(100);                                          
            });
      });
});
</script>





I basically have 5 small images underneath a larger image that when I click on one, I need to pass the attr hover (which is the path to the new image) to the #main and make it a fade. The above codes issue obviously is that there is a complete fade out then an attribute switch then a complete fade in, which is not what I want. Any more ideas?

I think it's not really your answer but you may use this plugin : http://malsup.com/jquery/cycle/int2.html

With : $("#s1").cycle({"fx":"fade","timeout":0,"next":"#s1"});

test page :

<script language="javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
		$("#s1").cycle({"fx":"fade", "timeout":0, "next":"#s1"});
	});
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="s1">

I've pretty much stopped writing my own image faders/sliders and have started using this plugin that is super easy to use and includes many different effects.

Ooops, sorry leakim971! I barely glanced at your answer and thought it was some other plugin.

I would like to be able to use the plugin, I have modified it to use it, but I have one problem, I want it to fade to a specific item instead of newt, so:









Say, img 1 is showing, when I click it, it advances to the next one in the list, is there a way I can specify which item it would fade to usinmg cycle? Basically I have smaller thumbnails and I would like it to change to a larger image of the one I click on Attached is an example.
