It’s a nifty little plugin called WP Cycle which allows you to upload various images (with editable dimensions so you can fit them perfectly in your layout) and arrange them into a slideshow to be placed on any post or page.
Seriously, it’s too simple to use. I simply created all the various jpegs (which took me weeks in itself) to the exact dimensions to the layout space they were to fit, and then just exported them as 96dpi jpegs. These are then uploaded via the plugin’s ‘Settings’ menu and assigned a hyperlink, if need be. There’s various transition effects you can use between the images and, overall, it’s as simple as picking your nose(!) Each image is also clickable.
The results are great, check it all out on my new home-page. Let me know what you think. Loads to come this year, stay tuned!
