Embed a slideshow on your website
For non-WordPress users who are looking to embed a slideshow on their website, the pickings are slim. Especially when you’re looking for these two features:
- a tool that helps you size and crop your images to look good in the slideshow
- the ability to link each image to a destination – like a page on your website or a news item
If you don’t mind cropping and sizing your own images, then Nivo is a great option. It allows image linking and it comes as a stand alone jquery install (you need coding experience) or as a WordPress plugin.
Cincopa is a pay hosting service and it only supports linking to images in a couple galleries – https://help.cincopa.com/entries/21539970-Can-I-add-a-link-to-my-slide-show-
Wowslider is software that you download – it builds the slideshow for you and you need to FTP your own images.
