If you just add timing values to your show and hide calls, you'll get a fade effect. The time is milliseconds, so try 400 to start (show(400)).

For the central image, you might call some animation function before you switch the image source, and then set a callback to switch it and reverse the effect, like this:

      image.fadeOut(400, function() {
        var src = current.children().attr("src");
        image.attr("src", src);
        image.fadeIn();
      });

You could replace fadeOut/fadeIn with animate(), and configure it for a number of different effects.
