According to this blog: http://www.practicalecommerce.com/articles/895-Web-Design-Tips-Add-An-Image-Flip-for-More-Sales
adding an image flip will increase sales as customers will judge your website mainly by the size, quality, and interactivity of the images you use.

The URL above includes codes, scripts and even a video-tutorial.
Is anyone up for the challange to make this an extension?

Kinda....but not the way that Iaqua is talking about. It would probably have to be coded into the template instead of as an extension.

Personally I llike the way that this website does images....http://www.compactappliance.com/Edgestar-12000-BTU-Portable-Air-Conditioner-Heater/AP420HS,default,pd.html

I like the javascript popup with the rollover thumbnail images. This is similar to what I plan on implementing on my website. I just don’t know where to begin.

Not the way it’s done in the attached video.  Looks really cool.

haha you were a coulpe of seconds faster than me there, Matt smile
I like the way it works on compactappliance.com as well, makes it easier for the customers.  I belive that for every click they have to do, the chance of buying something is decreased…

Oh, that change would be really easy to implement. Probably take 30 minutes max to do if you wanted to hire a programmer
