A few days ago, a friend of mine pointed me to a website (Sunday Nite Dinner) where a slideshow was embedded in one of the blog posts. It was really cool. So, being the pseudo GT geek that I am (pseudo being an understatement – you might as well throw some suspenders on me and slip a pocket protector on me), I had to figure out how to do the same thing on my site. It took a few days, but I found the solution. I think for future posts, this whole slideshow thing could prove to be extremely useful. But for now, I’m just flippin’ around with it. I created the actual slideshow with a software called Flash Slideshow Maker. They offer a free software which you can use to create your own custom slideshows. It is very easy to use and simple. There is some really cool stuff you can do to your slideshows with this software.
After that, I simply uploaded the files to my web server and then put in some code that would embed that slideshow onto my website. For those that have wordpress, download the Kimili plugin – this will allow you to embed video and photos with a single line of code.
Here is something I threw together (below):
