Gallery with menu list instead of thumbnails

Hi!, I was wondering if anyone could help me find a tutorial or something for a gallery with a text menu list instead of thumbnails? basically, i would like the photogallery from kirupa but instead of the thumbnails at the bottom i would like a list on the right or left side of the main picture window. i would like the names of the link to come from the xml file aswell. i tried to do something by mixing the squirrel finder with a photo gallery but just ended mixing myself up :slight_smile:

hope i was clear…

many thanks
