Full-width images that include slideshows and images with text overlays make the store look appealing and add to the product's charm on the page. We provide you with a chance to grab attention by using slideshows. Build your brand's identity by using relevant images and setting them up for a slideshow.

We provide the convenience of setting up animations for your slideshows to make them look more attractive and enhance the visitor’s experience. You can animate the content, images, or any other elements which are used in the slideshow.

Animating all elements at once 

This section allows the animation of every element present in your slideshow. You can either choose to animate them separately or all together.  

By checking on the option of animating all elements on your slideshow at once, you get the feasibility of altering all of them at once. By unchecking, each element will behave separately and will animate at different time slots. However, by animating separately, you may experience a slight delay in each animation.

How to make the slideshow responsive

The default slideshow can sometimes not be optimal for your mobile and desktop at the same time. It's recommended to use a different aspect ratio to better fit content on mobile. The responsive slideshow and adaptive slideshow allow you to upload different images for your desktop and mobile.

Note: If you want to always show the full height of the image, you can use the Adaptive Slideshow. This slider will adjust its height to the currently shown image.

AdaptiveResponsive Slideshow

Make sure to add a separate image for mobile with a different aspect ratio.
