We get a lot of call for rotating images on web sites, and we don’t generally like to charge people the high price associated with FLASH, so we’ve come up with a variety of solutions using simple Java scripts. Here’s a list:
Automatic slide show: http://www.childrensyogacenter.com/
On each page of this web site you will see an automatically rotating group of pictures on the right hand side. This is a very simple program that is ultra easy to update, simply by changing out the picture files. Adding pictures is not that hard either – I can easily train anyone who is computer savvy to do it.
User driven slide show: http://www.childrensyogacenter.com/yoga_testimonials.htm
This allows the user to page through the images at their own pace.
Full display user driven slide show: http://www.alternativehealthcaresonoma.com/retreat-vacation-sonoma-pictures.htm
This lets the user see all the pictures at once and choose which they would like to enlarge by rolling over the images.

If you scroll down you can see the full list of cast members for each show. When you click on them you go to bio information about that performer.
Fancy fade-in slide show: http://www.mosaicsandglassarts.com/
This is a lovely site and the fade-in really adds some style. This script is more complicated and not as easy to implement and maintain for a beginner, so I don’t generally recommend this one unless you really, really need the fade in and out effect.
When it comes to making web sites, there is almost always more than one option. At ONE STOP, we’ll help you choose the best solution for you, at the best price!
