Can't find the right Photo Album

Hi EE,

After weeks of searching and downloading multiple examples of photo album components, I've decided to see if any of you know of an album that will fit my needs.
What I need...
1.  Lets me display 2 pictures side by side (Before/After pictures)
2.  Allows a photo label
3.  Auto sizes uploaded images
4.  Load pictures dynamically.  Return path and title from database and then retrieve images from file... 2 at a time.
5.  Slider, scrolling anything that displays a nice picture.

I would be willing to pay a reasonable price for a component that would be easy to implement.

Thanks.

number 13 does 1,2 and 5

-for cropping, use jCrop (http://deepliquid.com/projects/Jcrop/demos.php?demo=thumbnail)

for getting data from the database, you may need to use some server side code (implementation will depend on your preferences)

>> you can also look at this rotator control from Telerik : http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/rotator/examples/default/defaultcs.aspx

almost any solution you will get will require some tweaking. or you can hire someone to do a custom component.

I looked at the links you provided and although they look nice, I need to be able to assign images using the stored path in a database.
I am not storing the images in the database, just the path and text.
A slider that will let me show two at a time, would be fine, just as long I can assign the paths to the images.
I am out of time, otherwise I would spend the time to create my own.

Any other ideas?

Thanks
