 3. Save, and we are done.

  • Forget about width and height it will adjust auto.
  • Replace the pink colored image URL with your own uploaded image URL(You can upload image on blogspot, flickr etc.
  • There is some other things you may want to play with, see below. I guess I don't have to explain that because they are named like as they are. Play with them...
animation: "slide",
controlNav: true,
directionNav: true,
easing: "swing",
slideshowSpeed: 3000,      
  animationSpeed: 600
Have fun! Don't forget to say thanks :)
