The Thumbnail Slideshow jQuery plugin is a simple yet effective way to produce small, or if you wish large, slideshows on hover.
There are many uses for this plugin, for example an eCommerce website allowing you to show multiple screenshots on a listing/category page rather than the standard one. Another use would be a video-based site to give the user an idea of the video as one screenshot isn’t generally enough to sum up a video. You could even use it on a blog to show multiple images that are related to that post.
Of course the uses for this plugin are limitless, if you wish it can also be used for a large slideshow.
So how many transition effecst are available? Currently seven and they are:
- Slide Up
- Slide Down
- Slide Right
- Slide Left
You can also customise the transition length and the delay between slides. Plus installation couldn’t be simpler, include three CSS classes, the Thumbnail Slideshow JS file plus the jQuery library!
If you have ever installed a jQuery plugin this is no different and takes seconds.
