This one are the best plugin for create slider for every post individualy, with their photos, not only for static photos/images. but you need a „gallery create“, for automaticly take the images, dsn’t work directly from „Add media“. We hope to fix this problem, to create an automatic carusel, directly from Add media. Other little problem is, because you can’t setup the speed for translate images. Anyway is the best because take the picture from YOUR post, and make there an slider. Thanks man all regards. !!! 5 star deserve.

I had installed this and related plugins to try and get nice looking galleries. It did the job well, however, it also replaced the featured images on my site with cropped and blurred versions of pictures, so I had to disable this plugin :/

Another plugin that focuses on the pro version. Didn’t size photos correctly and was generally ugly. Wouldn’t ever use it again. Sorry

This was the perfect plugin for me to create a „New Books“ carousel! I can add links to the thumbnails. So it does exactly what I needed. I can also resize the thumbnails to the width that I need 🙂 Pretty cool little plugin! Thank you so much 🙂
