"Free Image Slider"
WOWSlider is a fully featured image slider which lets you create contemporary and beautiful slideshows that can be published on your website or shared online. The beauty of this software is that it requires minimum effort in creating slideshows as the developers do not need to write even a single line of code to embed it in their website page(s), and instead can use its built-in wizard (named ‘Insert-to-page’) to do the same. This fast and lightweight software includes a large collection of amazing skins and spectacular effects, plus it works perfectly on all mobile devices and on all major internet browsers (including IE6).
Installing WOWSlider on your system is easy-peasy! It includes a single step of confirming the setup’s destination location, after which it gets installed on the system.
WOWSlider has got a modern, pleasant, and instinctual interface. Its layout is quite simple where the buttons for all the main functions are displayed in a toolbar at the top of window such as New/Open/Save Project, Add images and videos, Properties, Save HTML, Insert to Page, and Publish. The main screen is divided into two panels – one in the left panel for loading/displaying images to be added in slideshow and the one in the right panel for showing templates and other settings like text font, Transitions effect and Slide size.
- No need to write any code for generating and embedding slideshows in your websites as all you need to do is use its built-in ‘Insert-to-page’ wizard, open a web page and click on the page you want the slide to be inserted and Voila! Rest will be taken care of by this software
- The loading of images and videos to prepare slides is not limited to your system as you can add them from different sources like photos can be added from Photobucket, Flicker and Picasa; videos can be added from YouTube and Vimeo
- This is a very easy-to-use tool as you simply need to drag and drop the required images (other than browsing them from the system); select the theme, effects, and other settings you want to apply; and finally save it as a stand-alone page, Joomla Module, Wordpress or publish it to server using built-in FTP client
- You can create highly customizable slides according to your website needs since it offers numerous features, including but not limited to, auto-play, text descriptions, image and thumbnail size, crop mode, navigation control (with thumbnails, filmstrip, bullets and so on), slide delay, and transition speed
- The live preview area is very helpful in applying various effects and settings on-the-fly and then deciding which parameters should be kept in the final slides
- Its well-structured HTML code is easily readable by most of the search engines and text browsers, so it can be used on all modern and old browsers like Chrome, IE6+, Firefox, Safari, and Opera
- Unlike other software, you are not stuck with one type of slide theme as this software offers plenty of cool yet professional templates in which parameters like colors, frames, fonts, and backgrounds all pre-defined
- Customers are always intrigued by beautiful animations and effects and there are a handful of such effects and transitions available in WOWSlider
- Licenses are a bit expensive (Single website - $69; Unlimited Websited - $99; Exterprise- $149)
