Create photo, video and text slideshows with ease
It's easy to make a fade slideshow. 'Fade' is just one of 14 separate slide effects which you can use on your website slideshow. For a twist on 'fade' try 'fade-up' or 'fade-down'.
Jump straight to an image using thumbnails!
Thumbnails are automatically created by Magic Slideshow. Set slideshow thumbnails to any size, any position (bottom, top, right and left), and any style.
Panning and zooming images has never been easier. Add the Ken Burns effect to create the appearance that each slide slowly zooms in and out.
Made popular by documentary filmmaker Ken Burns in video production, this effect works beautifully on website slideshows too.
The 'fade' effect used when changing slides has been slowed down. By default this is set at 0.6 seconds, but this example takes 3 seconds to completely change from one slide to the next.
Creating a vertical slideshow has never been easier. By default, Magic Slideshow automatically changes slides horizontally (left/right), but with a simple customization your slideshow images can change vertically (up/down) in seconds.
Add videos to your slideshow for a quick way to get your message across.
Deciding the goal of each slideshow will help focus your thoughts about what you need. Would using only videos be best? Or would combining both photos and videos create maximum interest?
As well as supporting YouTube and Vimeo videos, Magic Slideshow also supports videos hosted on your server. You can show any video you want!
Year-on-year the number of users choosing handheld devices to view websites increases. So how can you make sure visitors are seeing your gorgeous slideshow images?
Use the fullscreen option!
By creating a fullscreen slideshow, no matter which screen size visitors use they will always experience your images exactly as you intended.
With 14 slideshow effects to choose from, which should you go for? How about a fade slideshow? Or cube slideshow? Don't forget dissolve, slide-in and flip too. Decisions, decisions!
But why pick 1 slideshow effect when you can have them all?
The random effect uses a mixture of all 14 transition effects. Every time a slide changes from one to another, a different effect is used.
Perfect for when 1 is just not enough.
Hover each bullet to view miniature version of that slide. You may know this feature as 'tooltip, 'infotip' or 'hint'. A simple but effective way to preview upcoming slides.
Think of a website slideshow. What came into your head? A photo slideshow, right? That's what most of us think.
Using a text slideshow on your website is another option. It's a great way to draw attention to latest articles without using a lot of web space. Add links to any text to help navigate visitors through your website.
Use any CSS and HTML to style the text and create a slideshow design exactly how you want.
Turn any slide into a clickable image!
Link each image to a different URL to navigate visitors throughout your website. Simply add a
<a> tag around the image.
Linking an image to a different website? Include
target="_blank" to open the link in a new window.
It's easy for visitors to see when an image is clickable. The cursor changes from an arrow pointer to a hand pointer when the image is hovered.
What type of slideshow zoom do you want? For a slow pan & zoom, choose the Ken Burns effect. But what if you want to zoom in closer on each slide?

Heard of high-resolution images? They're for screens that pack in more pixels into the same area, so images look sharper.
Apple calls them retina screens and they've been standard on all iPhones since the iPhone 4 way back in 2010.
At 4 times the size (double the height and double the width), they're so vividly sharp that you can't make out the dots. People have become used to seeing retina images on their iPads, iPhones and other high-res screens, so it looks inferior when they're served a traditional image.
No fear! Magic Slideshow supports retina images. Use 2 images for each slide - one standard-res and one hi-res.
