Online image galleries that also offer some cool animations when moving from one picture to another never get old, don’t you think? Sure, some people may say that watching slideshows instead of checking a bunch of thumbnails and going for the thing you want to see is a waste of time, but when it comes to slideshows, there are plenty of pieces of code to check out, so Skitter fits in really nice into this story, if you ask me… 😉
The jQuery plugin known as Skitter is freely available, looks great and enables virtually anyone to turn unordered image lists into slideshows, offering quite a few animation types, including cubes, bars, fade effects, and so on. The options available include animation particles velocity, label display on/off or slideshow timing, not to mention that each slide’s animation type can be mentioned as a class name, allowing for easy use of multiple animation types straight inside a slideshow.
As you probably figured out by now, Skitter requires jQuery and works with all major browsers… or at least that’s what is supposed to happen, since I will be honest and confess that I wasn’t able to take it for a spin using all those mobile and desktop browsers currently available in the wild, but I am sure you’ll be so nice to drop a comment below and let us know about any compatibility issues you may encounter, right? Thank you in advance and… that’s all, folks!
