I recommend you take a look at WOW Slider.  It has a number of change effects which may fit what you want.

You can also try Nivo Slider.  I have used it in Joomla development, and it is fantastic.

@Julian I mean rotate ans in it's a mosaic wall like this:

And the images change on a timer 1 by 1.

So do you mean a carousel as opposed to rotating the image 90 degrees so it's orientation changes?

There are two parts to this
1. Uploading images
2. The display of those images

You will in all likelihood need two different solutions.

Is your use case exactly the same as the link - or do you have a different scenario?

For instance - when you upload
- where do the images need to go - is there meta information that needs to be stored with them
- or do they just go into a folder. Do they need to be named in any particular way
- how do you envisage grouping them
  - as part of the upload or after the fact through a backend
- how will the visitor see the images
   - immediately after upload
   - or by going to a different page

Just some of the questions that will help to narrow down a solution.

Correct completely change out the images for a new one, not rotate the image 90 degrees.

We've narrowed down some on our end and the images we already have an uploader for.  

We just need the mosaic utility that shows the images and rotates them in and out, we'll be pulling the image links from database and passing to the mosaic.  Immediately after upload, they will be in the database so will show up in mosaic as they rotate in.

I suspect you are looking for a filmstrip carousel - don't have any I can recommend - usually just write these things from scratch but understand that is no the solution for most.

Try doing a search on filmstrip carousel and see if that brings up what you are looking for.

I am assuming there is a reason you can't / unable to use the autogrid on the link you showed me?

Ok, searched some, but looks like I'm going to have to build as needed mostly from scratch vs a plugin.
