    I want to know how to activate the slider of Photobook as shown, while installing theme. Can anyone help me about this?
    It would be of great help, if developer or anyone else can help.

    From what I can see, the idea is that it picks up the Featured Image from each of your blog posts. It arranges thumbnails below and a slider above. You set the Front Page option to show your blog posts and then add a post for each image you want to display. When you click on the thumbnails it takes you to the post.
    I hope this helps!

    Where is the Front Page option? Where on the Dashboard?

    To add images to slider I created custom field with the key "ex_show_in_slideshow" and value "yes". Not very comfortably but it works :)

    Ok. Found it...
    The custom fields are hidden per default (WP<3.1). For others who needs help with this;

    Within your post view, choose screen options and tick the custom fields box, and then you can create this 'ex_show_in_slideshow' field...and give it 'yes' as value...thus showing up in your slide show.
