Does the job greatly !

The interface is greatly designed and easy to use.
I love this plugin and use it on my website for sometimes without any issues.
Go for it !

Finally

It’s that simple and nice!

Exactly what I wanted!

Exactly what I was looking for. Being a novice WP user, I was looking for a simple plugin to create and display slideshows, including as a widget. Found it with this plugin. Thank you.

If you don’t want the right and left arrows on the slideshow, add this in your CSS:

.img_prev_0.img_prev {
display: none;
}
.img_next_0.img_next {
display: none;
}
