Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Add an autoplay slideshow, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] In this movie I want to create…the autoplay slideshow that we see on the landing page,…and I'm using these images, they're blurred landscapes.…Obviously because I like them,…but they are so abstracted that they can…withstand quite a lot of image compression.…If someone has a very wide browser,…viewing on a very large monitor,…they're quite forgiving of being stretched,…and I feel like they provide visual interest…but not too much visual distraction.…
Obviously that's a very subjective view,…and it's a difficult balance to strike.…So, on my homepage what I need is a widget,…and I want a basic slideshow.…I'll just drag that out, and let's have a look…at some of the options.…Now the Transition speeds that I want,…I can tell you from having experimented,…are five, three, and three.…Not 50, but five, and I do want it to Auto Play,…and I do want it to resume.…
Enable Swipe, no I don't want users…to be able to swipe this.…I don't need any captions, I don't need any Counter,…any previous or next, so it's just an image,…
