Nowadays, it is common to see a photo slideshow on a website. On the home page of an information site, in the photo gallery of your next holiday spot, in the presentation of your favorite fashion article, in advertising display... But how are these slideshows created and integrated? to a website? This is the question we will answer on this page.
First, let's start by clarifying that there is not one but several methods, used by webmasters and web developers, depending on the specific needs of a project, customer requests, preferences and habits of each. One thing is for sure: in most cases, the webmaster or web-developer will prefer to use a dedicated program / code that will make it easier for them. As the saying goes, "it is useless to reinvent the wheel ".
Among the methods mentioned above, it should be noted that, although it may have advantages in terms of realization and editing, the use of video is not the preferred option unless it is proves indispensable. In most cases, for practical reasons, we prefer the slide shows in the form of code / script, computed "in real time" by the visitor's machine.
Indeed, in general, a program is more flexible, able to create "on demand" a customized slideshow, to change the behavior during the reading, according to the parameters, user events, etc. In addition, a program will be able to play the images / scenes in a truly random way, where a video will only repeat the same loop over and over again.
It is therefore important to find the program that will meet all the requirements, will be easy to use while allowing experienced developers the ability to create advanced animations.
