1. Load jQuery library and the jQuery fader.js script where you needed.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.fader.js"></script>

2. Insert a list of images you want to fade between.

<div class="fader">
  <ul>
    <li><img src="1.jpg"></li>
    <li><img src="2.jpg"></li>
    <li><img src="3.jpg"></li>
  </ul>
</div>

3. The required CSS for the image fader. Add the following CSS snippets into your existing CSS file.

.fader ul { position: relative; }
