PictureSlides plugin for jQuery – create compelling slideshows and thumbnail galleries

Some time ago I released PictureSlides, a DOMAssistant plugin to create compelling slideshows and thumbnail galleries, with a number of customizable options. Recently, I ported PictureSlides to also work with jQuery, so if you want to do something spiffy with images, I recommend you check it out!

What is PictureSlides?

PictureSlides is a highly customizable JavaScript-based way to easily turn your images into a collection viewable as a slideshow, and with fading effects, if desired. It can be a stand-alone slideshow or have a complete image library look with thumbnails, navigation buttons and whatever you like.

It completely respects the already existing HTML in the web page, and creates the functionality from there. This also means that it is very easy to offer an accessible fallback for those without JavaScript enabled.

How it works

Simply put, PictureSlides consists of one settings file and one core functionality file. This basically means that when an updated version comes along, you can update the functionality file but keep your settings file (unless some new exciting settings are added as well, of course πŸ™‚ ), to ensure staying up-to-date is as hassle-free as possible.

To go into more detail, and find out all the available settings, read more in the PictureSlides implementation instructions.
