New options for photo gallery slideshows

A bunch of new ways to display your photo gallery slideshows were just added. You can now choose how fast to advance slides, how long the transition effects last, and we've also added a new "horizontal wipe" transition style.

You'll find the options in the "Gallery settings" tab of any photo gallery:

Set Time for Auto-advancing Slides

If you’ve selected to auto-advance slides, you can now set the amount of time before a photo changes to the next one in the slideshow. Options available are 1, 2, 3, 5, or 10 seconds.

Choose Slideshow Transition Time

You can also choose between Fast, Normal (default), and Slow transition times. This determines the speed of the transition between slides.

Select Transition Type

And finally, you can now select the type of transition between slides. Fading the images is the default setting, but you can have the images scroll horizontally, or choose to have no transition at all.
So when adding a new slideshow photo gallery to your band’s website, or if you already have slideshow galleries on your site, be sure to check out these new options.

Any chance we could make those photos clickable links? That would make a great sales tool.

Can we adjust the settings of the photos used in our page design too? I've had feedback from people saying the images change too quickly and it's distracting, but can't figure out how to change the transition times. Thanks :-)

Hey Delaney! Didn't know you had another project. The site looks great (of course). I'll pass on your feedback as well, it's becoming a popular request.
