The Perfect Image Carousel

I cannot recommend this plugin enough, the developers have done an excellent job and created the most perfect WordPress image carousel. Don't waste your time with the other two higher rated carousels like I did, just choose this and rest assured there won't be any unpleasant surprises like you get with the others. Its lightweight, friendly to css customisations in your theme and superbly responsive. The shortcodes work anywhere and there are plenty of options. Kudos to the developers, keep up the great work guys! Many thanks Warren 🙂

Great Support

Plugin works well as a banner for my site. Doesn't have click-thru functionality, but that's okay. Great support!

Great plugin and awesome support
