Lightweight Slideshow With Fade & Slide Transitions - slideshow.js

A simple, lightweight, and customizable slideshow plugin that displays your images in an elegant and smooth way.

It comes with several unique transitions (slide and crossfade) available for you to use, and it can be easily further customized via CSS.

How to use it:

1. Add images together with image captions and next/prev buttons to the slideshow container.

<div class="slideshow">

  <div class="slides-box">

    <!-- Slides -->
    <div class="slide">
      <p class="title">Slide 1</p>
      <img src="1.jpg" alt="image" title="image">

    <div class="slide">
      <p class="title">Slide 2</p>
      <img src="2.jpg" alt="image" title="image">

    <div class="slide">
      <p class="title">Slide 3</p>
      <img src="3.jpg" alt="image" title="image">

    ... more slides here ...


  <!-- Nav buttons -->
  <div class="slideshow-buttons">

    <div class="prev-btn">&larr;</div>
    <div class="next-btn">&rarr;</div>



2. Download the plugin and insert the slideshow.js after jQuery.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="slideshow.js"></script>

3. Initialize the slideshow plugin and determine which transition effects you wish to use: 'slide', 'fading', and 'photo'.

  effect: 'sliding',
