There are heaps of image sliders out there. Javscript plugins, tutorials, inspirational posts are everywhere! :) This time, my search is not limited to javascript only, but flash too. I have filtered out simple javascript slider that uses fadein/fadeout and sliding and choose slider with beautiful transition and some flash sliders as well.

I hope you will enjoy this list!

  • Coin Slider

    This is a javascript slider made with jQuery. I choose this because of its transition, unlike a normal slider, they always use fadein/fadeout or sliding techniques.
  • Dynamic Flash Gallery (Flash)

    This all start with a flash tutorial, it converts photos to polaroids and add a scrollbar to form a gallery. Pretty slick and most importantly it uses xml file to load images dynamically.
  • Nivo Slider

    Arr... my favourite :) It has got 9 unique transition effects and come with heaps of custom configuration as well! Another slider made with jQuery.
  • Fig Flash Gallery (Flash)

    A free, easy to install, flash image gallery for your website. View some examples or download it and see for yourself.
  • Horinaja Slider

    Horinaja is a ready-to-use slide-show implementation, utilizing either scriptaculous/prototype or jQuery. Horinaja is innovative because it allows you to use a mousewheel for navigation.
  • The PieceMaker (Flash)

    The Piecemaker, a 3D Flash image rotator gallery in the purest sense of the word. It’s Open Source, so feel free to download it, use it in any project you like, learn from it, modify it and improve it if you can.
  • Simpleviewer (Flash)

    SimpleViewer is a free, customizable Flash image gallery. It allows you to display your images on any web page in a professional, intuitive and simple way.
  • Cu3er (Flash)

    This slider has the most impressive transition! It caught attentions of everyone, simply massive, slick and wonderfully-made. This is a flash slider and it's FREE!

This was actually a useful list.

Some I'd already come across others I hadn't which is great.

I've also been using the website:


It's really convenient because I can create my gallery/slideshow is either Flash of jQuery, then simply copy and paste a short line of code into my site (which iw a wordpress page).

The tutorials were also a help as I'm somewhat of a begginer.

Might want to add this one to your list http://www.jstyler.net . I find it really useful to use and can't imagine using any other slider.
