How to Make Circular Rotating Elements

Please help me to find learning material so that I can implement the following idea.

I want someone to be able to scroll through my photos using media controls like the typical slideshow for most photography portfolios; however, the photos should align in a wheel formation. The pic 1 will be large and center. The others will be resized and smaller and aligned in a way to form a wheel or circle.

When the user clicks a pic, it will become pic 1.
When the user clicks media control, wheel spins, making a new pic the primary pic.

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot. I actually thought and laughed about that as I submitted the question… I haven’t even gotten to the Javascript lessons yet. I will learn more here… I just wanted to make a portfolio really quick for my budding photography passion.
