A website can hold lots of information, so a big issue is making sure the most important information gets the attention it needs. A good solution to this is using a slideshow on the home page to highlight featured content. What makes the slideshow so great is its ability show several pieces of content within a limited amount of space. Also, transitions and movement are a great way to get the users attention and get them engaged.
Slideshows and content sliders have really become a popular trend lately in web design thanks to solutions like jQuery that make it relatively easy to add such interactions. A while back, we even posted a collection of jQuery slider scripts and tutorials to help you get started. So now we’re showing you 55 examples of slideshows in web design to inspire you.

These slideshows look great and really fit in with the designs. This is a great alternative to flash!
Great list, very inspiring 🙂

Great showcase & inspiration! You should also check out http://www.ccad.edu and specifically the homepage slideshow, pretty cool!
That is simply Awsome 🙂 I love it
Awesome collection… truly inspiring, wow !!!!
It’s a great list for inspiration. Thank you!
Is it just me or are there a lot of iPhone App websites in this list? o.O Nice article, btw!
Great inspiration source, all very nice ! CakePHP is my favourite
Great collection…Thanks for pulling them together!
See mine slider. I’m proud of it – simple&modern.
What a great list! I love the creativity with jQuery!
Great list! Very useful. Thanks for sharing.
Great collection again! Will definitely go through them and add some good website elements to our showcase blog. Actually – we might start a new category sideshows. who knows…
I can’t say I have ever seen a longer list of websites with slide galleries on them as this one! I actually managed to go through them all and test out the slide shows and was really impressed with some of them.
I especially like James Lai creative, the way in which he has separate slideshows for each category but all still on that one page with changing text was really nice. (So nice in fact I may have to do something like that on my next website design!)
jQuery has definitely changed the way we go about designing sites, and I am glad that i’m having to use flash less and less. Having a jQuery slide gallery like these can make a site look great on its own.
Thanks for sharing the list, really some great inspiration from some of these sites to go forward with into my next project.
Lots of sites with image slider, pretty popular these days.
