I need a modal popup for large images

I need to have a modal image popup when some text is clicked. The image is 8.5 x 11 or larger, and since it is a scanned document, in many cases, needs to be rotated. Since some users are viewing with netbooks, I need to be able to scroll the images, and allow the visitor to ratate the image if it isn't showing properly.

Any idea how I can do this, or if there is an "off the shelf" solution in jQuery.

I doubt that you would find an "off the shelf" script that can rotate images within a gallery but what I can suggest is the Floatbox script, we once had an issue with the client uploading large images that wouldn't fit the screen, this gallery script was neat with a nice thmbnail zoom effect and it automatically scales the image to fit your screen in case it wouldn't, it also shows a magnifying lens cursor that allows you to expand the image to its actual size "only if the displayed image was scaled to fit your screen".

You can find it here

and demo here

Otherwise if you still need to rotate images, I believe you would need to find a script that suits your requirements then implement the rotation.
This might be helpful, it's a jQuery extension that allows you to rotate images, with some effort you might be able to combine it with another jQuery gallery.
