A generation ago, the word slider meant small, greasy hamburgers (ala White Castle) that went down in a bite or two. For web developers, slider means something different.
Sliders, Carousels, Animation, Oh My!
WOW Slider is an image slider app for Mac and Windows PCs.
It brings those attractive visual effects to bunch of professional templates without having to code by hand or edit images.
Checkout this simple process. Drag a folder of images onto WOW Slider. Add titles and descriptions as needed for each image.
The Toolbar is a bit graphically sophomoric but totally usable but totally 1999. See the floppy disk icon to Save your project? When was the last time you used a floppy disk? Click Plus to add images, Minus to delete images.
Arrow buttons move images left or right in the rotation. Each slider or carousel can be edited with different controls, customizable animation and change speeds, with or without navigation controls You can even add a logo or watermark to the images.
Effects include Blinds, Push, Squares, and a traditional Dissolve Fade. More effects would be good.
Image quality can be changed within the app to reduce file size. WOW Slider also comes with Flickr or PhotoBucket upload capability, as well as a built-in FTP app. Click Here to view some demonstration carousels.
Overall, not bad, and a big time saver.
