[Plugin: Jetpack by WordPress.com] Adding Image Slideshow using Shortcode

    Jetpack offers a slideshow shortcode for use with slide.com, which generates slideshows. There’s nothing built-in to Jetpack that allows you to create a slideshow from your Media gallery, however.

    I see slide.com no longer lets you register to create a slideshow anymore though and the link to slide from http://www.slide.com/arrange?cy=wp no longer works. So looks like slide is no longer an option for wordpress users 🙁

    Can you suggest anything else?

    I found “slideshow” by devpress to work with the short code for this type of thing. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/slideshow/faq/

    The only downside that bothered me with this one is that it cuts off images that are too tall, showing only the top half.

    I noticed nextgen doesn’t cut the images off, but unfortunately that one doesn’t use [slideshow] automatically like the first plugin I mentioned does. I’m trying to find the balance between these two factors :/

    also might want to disable jetpack to make it work.

    I really want to use this right because I transferred a lot of post-attached galleries from a .com site.
