A simple, lightweight image carousel slider built with HTML, CSS/SCSS, CSS3 animations, and a little bit of jQuery.

How to use it:

1. Add images together with the SVG based next/prev arrows to the slider.

<div class="slider right">

  <div class="arrow left">
    <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 292.359 292.359">
      <path d="M222.979 5.424C219.364 1.807 215.08 0 210.132 0c-4.949 0-9.233 1.807-12.848 5.424L69.378 133.331c-3.615 3.617-5.424 7.898-5.424 12.847s1.809 9.233 5.424 12.847l127.906 127.907c3.614 3.617 7.898 5.428 12.848 5.428 4.948 0 9.232-1.811 12.847-5.428 3.617-3.614 5.427-7.898 5.427-12.847V18.271c-.001-4.949-1.81-9.229-5.427-12.847z" fill="#FFFFFF"/>
    </svg>
  </div>

  <div class="container-images">
    <img class="active" src="1.jpg">
    <img src="2.jpg">
    <img src="3.jpg">
    <img src="4.jpg">
    <img src="5.jpg">
    <img src="6.jpg">
  </div>

  <div class="arrow right">
    <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 292.359 292.359">
      <path d="M222.979 5.424C219.364 1.807 215.08 0 210.132 0c-4.949 0-9.233 1.807-12.848 5.424L69.378 133.331c-3.615 3.617-5.424 7.898-5.424 12.847s1.809 9.233 5.424 12.847l127.906 127.907c3.614 3.617 7.898 5.428 12.848 5.428 4.948 0 9.232-1.811 12.847-5.428 3.617-3.614 5.427-7.898 5.427-12.847V18.271c-.001-4.949-1.81-9.229-5.427-12.847z" fill="#FFFFFF"/>
    </svg>
  </div>

</div>

2. The required CSS/CSS3 rules for the slider & slider controls.

.slider {
  position: relative;
  display: flex;
  justify-content: space-between;
  align-items: center;
}

.slider .arrow {
  cursor: pointer;
  width: 50px;
}

.slider .arrow:hover {
  opacity: .8;
}

.slider .arrow.right {
  transform: rotate(180deg);
}

.slider .container-images {
  position: relative;
  width: 400px;
  height: 250px;
  overflow: hidden;
  -webkit-box-shadow: 10px 10px 61px -10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.75);
  -moz-box-shadow: 10px 10px 61px -10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.75);
  box-shadow: 10px 10px 61px -10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.75);
}

.slider .container-images img {
  width: 100%;
  position: absolute;
  top: 50%;
  transition-duration: .5s;
  transform: translateY(-50%);
}

.slider.right .container-images img {
  left: -100%;
  z-index: -1;
}

.slider.right .container-images img.active {
  z-index: 1;
  left: 0;
}

.slider.right .container-images img.to_right {
  left: 100%;
}

.slider.left .container-images img {
  right: -100%;
  z-index: -1;
}

.slider.left .container-images img.active {
  z-index: 1;
  right: 0;
}

.slider.left .container-images img.to_left {
  right: 100%;
}

3. Place the needed jQuery library at the end of the document.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.min.js" integrity="sha384-tsQFqpEReu7ZLhBV2VZlAu7zcOV+rXbYlF2cqB8txI/8aZajjp4Bqd+V6D5IgvKT" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

4. The jQuery script to switch between images when the user clicks the next/prev arrows.

$(window).on('load', function() {

  let nbImg = 0;
  $('.slider .container-images img').each(function() {
    nbImg += 1;
  });

  $('.slider .arrow').click(function() {
    let n = imageActive();
    
    $('.slider').removeClass('right left');

    if($(this).hasClass('left')) { 
      n -= 1;
      $('.slider').addClass('left');
      setTimeout(function() {
        $('.slider .container-images img.active').addClass('to_left');
      }, 50)
    }
    else if($(this).hasClass('right')) { 
      n += 1;
      $('.slider').addClass('right');
      setTimeout(function() {
        $('.slider .container-images img.active').addClass('to_right');
      }, 50)
    }

    if(n > nbImg) n = 1;
    if(n < 1) n = nbImg;

    setTimeout(function() {
      $('.slider .container-images img').removeClass('active');
      $('.slider .container-images img:nth-child('+n+')').addClass('active');
    
      setTimeout(function() {
        $('.slider .container-images img').removeClass('to_left');
        $('.slider .container-images img').removeClass('to_right');
      }, 500)
    }, 50)
  });

  function imageActive() {
    let n = 1;
    $('.slider .container-images img').each(function(index) {
      if($(this).hasClass('active')) {
        n += index;
      }
    });
    return n;
  }

});
