Lite Version too cheap + Pro not Pro
By , for WP 4.5.2

Lite Version does nothing else but show some pics...
Pro Version does have a lot of gimmics - but no Layers... too cheap...
Homepage years old with blog items very outdated...
Best of all - not a single Demo to see what you get... No TEXT Layer found - not a single word about it.

Too simple
By , for WP 4.3

Impossible to add pictures from your Library.
The only transition is fade, no slide.
There will be navigation arrows and dots, no option to deactivate it.

A very too simple slider to me. I need more options.

Works, but not in a useful way
By , for WP 4.1.1

I gave this one a shot, and it didn't live up to the hype/ad copy. It did work, at least the basic function of creating a multi-image slider was successful. But it didn't meet my needs. It could not create a slider from images already uploaded to the Media Library; it only creates sliders with images inserted directly from the computer. I guess that's good enough as long as you're editing the website from the same computer that has all of your image files...

Not fast and have to upload images from computer
By , for WP 4.1.1

I tried this slider and after deactivating it, my site still appears slow in Google PageSpeed Insights. Before I installed it, my site was faster. At best when it was active, this slider appears no different from any other slider out there. I wonder if it leaves behind residual code....


Edit: Ok, I admit I jumped the gun on the residual code leftovers. After retrying on Google Page Insights my site appears hardly any slower (2 points down). Initially I was shocked to see the site in the red even after deactivating the plugin for perhaps a minute...

But I still found it slow, at least on Google Page Insights (absolutely no difference, and showing me a lot of jquery bloat) and I disliked that I had to upload images from my computer rather than from the library.

Not Bad

Would have been nice to have a bit more control over the css, ie to be able to remove the numbers from the control-nav without having to display:none the whole bloody lot!
