A tiny and simple-to-use jQuery carousel slider plugin which enables you to switch a group of images (or Html content) with cool CSS3 powered transitions effects.

How to use it:

1. The markup structure to create a carousel slider containing mixed Html content.

<div id="slider">
  <ul>
    <li> <a href="#"><img src="1.jpg" alt="" /></a>
      <div class="overlay">
        <p> <a href="#">Caption 1</a> </p>
      </div>
    </li>
    <li> <a href="#"><img src="2.jpg" alt="" /></a>
      <div class="overlay">
        <p> <a href="#">Caption 2</a> </p>
      </div>
    </li>
    <li> <a href="#"><img src="3.jpg" alt="" /></a>
      <div class="overlay">
        <p> <a href="#">Caption 3</a> </p>
      </div>
    </li>
    <li> <a href="#"><img src="4.jpg" alt="" /></a>
      <div class="overlay">
        <p> <a href="#">Caption 4</a> </p>
      </div>
    </li>
    <li> <a href="#"><img src="5.jpg" alt="" /></a>
      <div class="overlay">
        <p> <a href="#">Caption 5</a> </p>
      </div>
    </li>
    <li> <a href="#"><img src="6.jpg" alt="" /></a>
      <div class="overlay">
        <p> <a href="#">Caption 6</a> </p>
      </div>
    </li>
  </ul>
</div>

2. Create next/prev links to navigate the carousel slider.

<a href="#" class="prev">&nbsp;</a> 
<a href="#" class="next">&nbsp;</a>

3. Load jQuery library and the jQuery JavaScript Carousel plugin at the bottom of the web page.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script> 
<script src="carousel.js"></script> 

4. The CSS for the next/prev navigation.

.prev {
  background: url(../images/left-on.png) no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
  display: block;
  float: left;
  height: 40px;
  margin-top: 100px;
  width: 23px;
}

.prev-disable { background: url(../images/left-off.png) no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent; }

.next {
  background: url(../images/right-on.png) no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
  display: block;
  float: right;
  height: 40px;
  margin-top: 100px;
  width: 23px;
}

.next-disable { background: url(../images/right-off.png) no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent; }

5. The CSS/CSS3 style rules for the carousel images and transitions.

#slider ul li { position: absolute; }

#slider ul li.prev-slide {
  opacity: 1;
  transform: translate(0px, 0px);
  -ms-transform: translate(0px, 0px);
  -webkit-transform: translate(0px, 0px);
  -o-transform: translate(0px, 0px);
  -moz-transform: translate(0px, 0px);
  transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -moz-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -moz-transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -webkit-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -webkit-transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -o-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -o-transform 400ms ease 0s;
}

#slider ul li.selected {
  opacity: 1;
  transform: translate(310px, 0px);
  -ms-transform: translate(310px, 0px);
  -webkit-transform: translate(310px, 0px);
  -o-transform: translate(310px, 0px);
  -moz-transform: translate(310px, 0px);
  transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -moz-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -moz-transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -webkit-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -webkit-transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -o-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -o-transform 400ms ease 0s;
}

#slider ul li.next-slide {
  opacity: 1;
  transform: translate(620px, 0px);
  -ms-transform: translate(620px, 0px);
  -webkit-transform: translate(620px, 0px);
  -o-transform: translate(620px, 0px);
  -moz-transform: translate(620px, 0px);
  transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -moz-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -moz-transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -webkit-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -webkit-transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -o-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -o-transform 400ms ease 0s;
}

#slider ul li.prev-hidden {
  opacity: 0;
  transform: translate(0px, 0px);
  -ms-transform: translate(0px, 0px);
  -webkit-transform: translate(0px, 0px);
  -o-transform: translate(0px, 0px);
  -moz-transform: translate(0px, 0px);
  transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -moz-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -moz-transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -webkit-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -webkit-transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -o-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -o-transform 400ms ease 0s;
}

#slider ul li.next-hidden {
  opacity: 0;
  transform: translate(620px, 0px);
  -ms-transform: translate(620px, 0px);
  -webkit-transform: translate(620px, 0px);
  -o-transform: translate(620px, 0px);
  -moz-transform: translate(620px, 0px);
  transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, transform 400ms ease 0s;
.  -moz-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -moz-transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -webkit-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -webkit-transform 400ms ease 0s;
  -o-transition: opacity 400ms ease 0s, -o-transform 400ms ease 0s;
}

6. Style the container overlay (image caption).

#slider .overlay {
  background: none repeat scroll 0 0 rgba(10, 10, 10, 0.5);
  padding: 10px;
  position: relative;
  top: -43px;
  width: 100%;
}

#slider .overlay > p {
  font-weight: bold;
  text-align: center;
  text-shadow: 2px 5px 2px rgba(132, 130, 125, 0.98);
}

#slider .overlay > p a { color: #fff; }

7. Initialize the carousel slider.

$('#content').Carousel('init', {});
