I am looking for a Joomla or Wordpress theme or extension which would allow me to build a gallery with a behaviour similar to the Google Search by Images page layout.
I am attaching a screenshot of Google to illustrate the function.

The chief characteristics I am looking for are:

1) Masonry layout with image thumbnails

2) Click a thumbnail and it opens up on the left and to the right we see:
     a) A description of that item
     b) Icons of related items (such as colour variants of the same product).
          Click on one of the side icons and it is seen large on the left,
          and the previously zoomed image becomes a small icon on the right.

3) The zoomed image on the left may or may not have a further full-screen zoom.

4) If SEO or social network are integrated, even better.

5) Above the icons on the right the possibility to go to a page with further details about the product.

If there is something even similar please suggest.

Thanks in advance.

It's going to be a little difficult to find something that works exactly like GIS as no one wants to be on the receiving end of a C&D from Google for violation of something or other.

It's also a little tough to get a plugin for this...there are a half a billion image gallery plugins for WordPress and Joomla and they almost all suck :)

However, your saving grace is that there are a lot of very nice JQuery plugins that grid up well and some even have a similar-to-Google display option.  I'm partial to:

Least.js: http://kamilczujowski.github.io/least/
GammaGallery: http://tympanus.net/Development/GammaGallery/

For pure, native WordPress you might want to try Easy Media Gallery and fork it:

Thanks for the input.

Anything for any other CMS that might be better? Drupal?
