Your website is the first place most people look when they want to learn more about your business. How can you make sure your site stands out so that visitors will stay a while? A great way to engage your audience is through the use of slideshows and image galleries. As the saying goes, “A picture is worth 1,000 words”.
Combining the Power of Multimedia with the Power of WordPress
WordPress provides excellent support for slideshows and image galleries, as well as all sorts of other multimedia. It’s one of the many reasons that we love and use it for all of our projects. (If you’re curious about the other reasons, check out 7 Reasons to Consider WordPress for Your Next Website.) With hundreds of WordPress slideshow plugins to choose from, the biggest challenge is finding the right one to meet your needs. After reviewing and testing dozens of plugins, we are now using Slider Pro for the majority of our projects.
Flexible, Customizable and Easy to Update
Slider Pro offers a ton of options for customizing your slideshows to match your branding and website. You can easily set the size of both the main images and the thumbnails. There are numerous options for navigation style (thumbnails or buttons) and position (horizontal or vertical). It also provides all sorts of transition effects. In addition, you can create your own custom “skins” to change the look and feel of the buttons, borders and more.
The examples below show just a few of the possibilities.
