They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so imagine how much you could convey on your website with an attractive, full-screen background slideshow.
Well, you no longer just have to imagine it, thanks to the Supersized jQuery plugin that does just that.
This advanced full-screen background plugin allows designers to display a photo or set of photos as a slideshow that takes up the full width and height of a Web page. And although this may not be ideal for all websites, it can be incredibly beneficial for creative professionals that want to display their work, like photography sites, designer portfolios or event sites.
Supersized integrates with Flickr, so users can incorporate images from their Flickr accounts into their websites. Among the features available on default “Shutter” theme for Supersized are a progress bar, a slide in/out thumbnail tray, a fluid thumbnail bar based on Thumb Reel and an option for mouse-responsive thumbnail scrubs. It also supports multiple transition effects, including carousel, fade and slide right.
Sam Dunn of One Mighty Roar created Supersized as a Build Internet project.
