I needed a simple slideshow but it had to be positioned on a background. This plugin allowed for multiple slideshows with their own stylesheets in a very easy to use setup. I had three slide shows installed and customized in under an hour. The developer responded quickly and helpfully in the WordPress support forum to a question I had due to my own lack of code expertise. Donate to keep this plugin viable, and to respect the time and frustration it will save you.
