Marquee Image Crawler Joomla module

Marquee image crawler is a continuous scrolling image module for Joomla. This module crawls the images left or right. Instead of automatic scrolling, the image can optionally be mouse-driven, so the location of the mouse cursor dictates which direction for the image crawl to go and at what speed of the crawl.
