Responsive Layout is the hottest trend at the moment. The blooming of mobile platforms have pushed this technique to a whole new level. The basic concept behind responsive layout is to adapt the website to different screen resolutions with CSS Media Query by hiding or resizing the web layout so it fits perfectly in different screen resolutions. One of the great and complex example of responsive layouts would be Smashing Magazine.

Due to the popularity of responsive layout, many developers have created Responsive Image Sliders as well to adapt the responsive and fluid layout. These sliders are pretty robust as they have many configurable settings, callback events and some of them with touch swipe support on mobile platform and of course, awesome transition too. In this post, we have 7 image sliders with responsive layout support.
