This tutorial will show you how to add another beautiful image slider for Blogger / BlogSpot made with jQuery and, of course, with HTML and CSS. This slider, called Orbit, is a lightweight jQuery plugin that will display multiple images in a limited space using navigation arrows (previous-next buttons). On the upper left of the Orbit slideshow, we have some small bullet icons indicating the current image that we are viewing and, on the upper right side, is the pause option and a timer letting us know when the next image will be displayed.

The HTML markup is pretty clean, just an element that wraps multiple images where the captions are generated from the span tags of these images.

How to Add the Orbit Image Slider to Blogger

Step 1. From your Blogger Dashboard, go to Template > Edit HTML > click anywhere inside the code area and press the CTRL + F keys to open the blogger search box. Paste or type the below tag inside the search box and hit Enter to find it.
</head>

Step 2. Just above </head> add the following scripts:

<script src='http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js' type='text/javascript'/>

<!--[if IE]>
<style type="text/css">
.timer { display: none !important; }
div.caption { background:transparent; filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#99000000,endColorstr=#99000000);zoom: 1; }
</style>
<![endif]-->

<script type='text/javascript'>
$(window).load(function() {
$(&#39;#featured&#39;).orbit({
advanceSpeed: 5000,
&#39;bullets&#39;: true,
&#39;timer&#39; : true,
&#39;animation&#39; : &#39;horizontal-slide&#39;
});
});

Note: You can change the transitions speed between each image by modifying the 5000 value from the line in blue - a higher number will make the pictures stay longer between each transition.

Important! If you have already a version of jQuery in your template, please remove the line in red, otherwise the slideshow might not work.

Step 3. Now it is time to add the CSS. Find (CTRL + F) this tag:

.orbit-bullets li.active { color: #222; background-position: -7px 0; }
Step 5. Click on the "Save template" button to save the changes.

Finally, we will use the HTML code that displays the images. We have the option to add the slider either inside one of our posts/pages, or display it as a gadget on the blog' sidebar or below the header.

If you choose to add it inside one of your posts, switch to the HTML tab and paste the code below inside HTML box of your post.

If you want to add it in the blog sidebar/below the header, go to "Layout", click on the "Add a gadget link" > choose "HTML/JavaScript" from the pop-up window and paste this html inside the box:
<div id='featured'>

<a href='Link URL'><img rel='photo1' src="image URL" style='height: 348px; width: 590px;'/></a>
<span class='orbit-caption' id='photo1'>Ut eleifend tortor aliquet, fringilla nunc non, consectetur magna.</span>

<a href="Link URL"><img rel='photo2' src="image URL" style='height: 348px; width: 590px;'/></a>
<span class='orbit-caption' id='photo2'>This is an example of description with links: <a href='Description Link URL' style='color: #09A7EA;'>Helplogger</a></span>

<a href="Link URL"><img rel='photo3' src="image URL" style='height: 348px; width: 590px;'/></a>
<span class='orbit-caption' id='photo3' style='text-align:center;'>Ut eleifend tortor aliquet, fringilla nunc non, consectetur magna.</span>

<a href='Link URL'><img rel='photo4' src="image URL" style='height: 348px; width: 590px;'/></a>
<span class='orbit-caption' id='photo4'>This is an example of description with links: <a href='Description Link URL' style='color: #09A7EA;'>Helplogger</a></span>

</div>
This code contains the images, links and descriptions for each image. In blue, are the URLs of the links and images that you need to replace with your own. Inside the HTML code of each image, you have the size of each picture that can be changed by modifying the width (590) and height (348) values. To add the description for your pictures, replace the text in red.

If you want to add more pictures, add this HTML before the </div> tag:
<a href='Link URL'><img rel='photo5' src="image URL" style='height: 348px; width: 590px;'/></a>
<span class='orbit-caption' id='photo5'>Ut eleifend tortor aliquet, fringilla nunc non, consectetur magna.</span>
Notice that each image and description has an unique identifier (id) and shouldn't be repeated. For instance, in the description text of the first image, we have the id="photo1" and within the image code is the "rel" attribute with the name of the id, that is rel="photo1".

After you added your images, click the "Save" or "Publish" button and that's it! Now you can enjoy this cool Orbit Image Slider for Blogger.

Orbit - jQuery Image Slider Plugin For Blogger

This tutorial will show you how to add another beautiful image slider for Blogger / BlogSpot made with jQuery and, of course, with HTML and CSS.

This code contains the images, links and descriptions for each image. In blue, are the URLs of the links and images that you need to replace with your own. Inside the HTML code of each image, you have the size of each picture that can be changed by modifying the width (590) and height (348) values. To add the description for your pictures, replace the text in red.

If you want to add more pictures, add this HTML before the </div> tag:
<a href='Link URL'><img rel='photo5' src="image URL" style='height: 348px; width: 590px;'/></a>
<span class='orbit-caption' id='photo5'>Ut eleifend tortor aliquet, fringilla nunc non, consectetur magna.</span>
Notice that each image and description has an unique identifier (id) and shouldn't be repeated. For instance, in the description text of the first image, we have the id="photo1" and within the image code is the "rel" attribute with the name of the id, that is rel="photo1".

After you added your images, click the "Save" or "Publish" button and that's it! Now you can enjoy this cool Orbit Image Slider for Blogger.
Image galleries, sliders and slideshows have become increasingly popular within web pages and more and more developers have been creating these amazing powerful, versatile and sleek galleries. In this tutorial, you will see how to display the relevant content in an attractive and usable manner, by adding this beautiful carousel slideshow to display a gallery of images with a cool sliding effect.

</script>
Note: If you already have Scriptaculous and Prototype, it's not necessary adding the code in red but please note that this may not work with some versions of jQuery.

Step 4. Next, search for the following tag (for more info, see the screenshot below):
]]></b:skin>
image carousel, blogger image slider, blogger widgets
Screenshot
Step 5. Just above that tag, add this CSS code:
.carousel {
position:relative;
clear:both;
margin:10px -20px 20px;
border:2px solid #000; /* Carousel border */
background-color:#333333; /* Background color */
}
.carousel .navButton { cursor:pointer; display:block;
text-indent:-9999px;
background-repeat:none;
z-index:10;
}
.carousel .container {
position:absolute;
overflow:hidden;
}
.carousel .items {
position:absolute;  }
#Carousel2 {
height:88px; /* container height */
width:100%; /* container width */
}
#Carousel2 .container {
top:12px;
width:100%; /* container width for the visible images */
height:100px; /* container height for the visible images */
}
#Carousel2 .items { top:0; left:2px;
width:1700px; /* overall width for all the thumbnails */
}
#Carousel2 .item { height:70px; width:70px; float:left; clear:right; }
#Carousel2 .item .icon img { position:relative; left:0px; width:65px !important; height:65px; cursor:pointer;}
#Carousel2 .navButton { position:absolute; bottom:0px; width:24px; height:87px; }
#Carousel2 .navButton.previous { left:0px; background-image:url(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-F5Qs-PaavL8/UoJNRUBO88I/AAAAAAAAEt0/RYwSNdin6vc/s1600/button-left.png); }
#Carousel2 .navButton.next { right:2px; background-image:url(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-kOga7w7W0CA/UoJNRVJjaHI/AAAAAAAAEt4/GI7YgzSjl0o/s1600/button-right.png); }
#Carousel2 .item .key { display:none;}
#Carousel2 .item .picture { display:none;}

Note:

Check the comments in green to see which parts you can customize, such as the border and background color of the carousel. Please note that the arrows are images, so if you want to change them, you need to replace the two URLs in blue with those of your images.

If you want to change the size of the container, change the /* container width */ (width of the carousel), the /* container width for the visible images */ (area where the thumbnails are visible) and the /* overall width of the thumbnails container */ value (1700px) which is the container for all the picutres that you added.

Step 6. To save the changes, click the "Save Template" button.

Step 7. Finally, go to "Layout" and click the "Add a Gadget" link. After the pop-up window opens, choose "HTML/Javascript" and paste the HTML structure of the carousel inside the empty box:
<div id="Carousel2" class="carousel">
<div class="button navButton previous" style="display:none;">Back</div>
<div class="button navButton next" style="display:none;">Forward</div>

</div>
</div>
</div>
Note: Replace the text in blue with your links and image URLs. The link URL is optional, so you can add it only if you want to link the images to some posts.

Step 8. Once you added your pics to the carousel, click the "Save" button to save the widget and make it visible on your blog.

If you wish to add more images or remove some, change the width of the thumbnails as well, otherwise some pictures will appear behind the others.

To add more pictures, paste the following code just before the </div> tags in red:
<div class="item">
<div class="key caption">Thumb</div>
<div class="icon">
<a href="link URL"><img width="65" height="65" src="image URL" /></a></div>
<div class="picture"></div>

Note: If you already have Scriptaculous and Prototype, it's not necessary adding the code in red but please note that this may not work with some versions of jQuery.

Step 4. Next, search for the following tag (for more info, see the screenshot below):
]]></b:skin>
image carousel, blogger image slider, blogger widgets
Screenshot
Step 5. Just above that tag, add this CSS code:
.carousel {
position:relative;
clear:both;
margin:10px -20px 20px;
border:2px solid #000; /* Carousel border */
background-color:#333333; /* Background color */
}
.carousel .navButton { cursor:pointer; display:block;
text-indent:-9999px;
background-repeat:none;
z-index:10;
}
.carousel .container {
position:absolute;
overflow:hidden;
}
.carousel .items {
position:absolute;  }
#Carousel2 {
height:88px; /* container height */
width:100%; /* container width */
}
#Carousel2 .container {
top:12px;
width:100%; /* container width for the visible images */
height:100px; /* container height for the visible images */
}
#Carousel2 .items { top:0; left:2px;
width:1700px; /* overall width for all the thumbnails */
}
#Carousel2 .item { height:70px; width:70px; float:left; clear:right; }
#Carousel2 .item .icon img { position:relative; left:0px; width:65px !important; height:65px; cursor:pointer;}
#Carousel2 .navButton { position:absolute; bottom:0px; width:24px; height:87px; }
#Carousel2 .navButton.previous { left:0px; background-image:url(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-F5Qs-PaavL8/UoJNRUBO88I/AAAAAAAAEt0/RYwSNdin6vc/s1600/button-left.png); }
#Carousel2 .navButton.next { right:2px; background-image:url(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-kOga7w7W0CA/UoJNRVJjaHI/AAAAAAAAEt4/GI7YgzSjl0o/s1600/button-right.png); }
#Carousel2 .item .key { display:none;}
#Carousel2 .item .picture { display:none;}

Note:

Check the comments in green to see which parts you can customize, such as the border and background color of the carousel. Please note that the arrows are images, so if you want to change them, you need to replace the two URLs in blue with those of your images.

If you want to change the size of the container, change the /* container width */ (width of the carousel), the /* container width for the visible images */ (area where the thumbnails are visible) and the /* overall width of the thumbnails container */ value (1700px) which is the container for all the picutres that you added.

Step 6. To save the changes, click the "Save Template" button.

Step 7. Finally, go to "Layout" and click the "Add a Gadget" link. After the pop-up window opens, choose "HTML/Javascript" and paste the HTML structure of the carousel inside the empty box:
<div id="Carousel2" class="carousel">
<div class="button navButton previous" style="display:none;">Back</div>
<div class="button navButton next" style="display:none;">Forward</div>

</div>
</div>
</div>
Note: Replace the text in blue with your links and image URLs. The link URL is optional, so you can add it only if you want to link the images to some posts.

Step 8. Once you added your pics to the carousel, click the "Save" button to save the widget and make it visible on your blog.

If you wish to add more images or remove some, change the width of the thumbnails as well, otherwise some pictures will appear behind the others.

To add more pictures, paste the following code just before the </div> tags in red:
<div class="item">
<div class="key caption">Thumb</div>
<div class="icon">
<a href="link URL"><img width="65" height="65" src="image URL" /></a></div>
<div class="picture"></div>
</div>
There are many types of galleries for images that can be found on the internet, but we rarely find one displaying images so differently like this one. Those using Mac OS X will surely notice a lot of similarity with Time Machine and those who don't, I'm sure will enjoy this type of effect for viewing images.

image gallery with jQuery for blogger
SpaceGallery is a JQuery based slideshow / image gallery that performs overlaying in a visually appealing manner and provides a smooth fade out effect to images. This 3D image gallery lets you float through your pictures easily by enlarging them with an Apple-like animation.

To see the SpaceGallery slideshow in action, please visit this demo blog and click on the first image:


How to Add Spacegallery Image Slideshow to Blogger

To implement this gallery is very easy. Just follow the steps below:

Step 1. Log in to your Blogger account and select your blog. Next, go to Template and click the Edit HTML button:

Step 2. Click anywhere on the code area and search by using the CTRL + F keys for this tag

<img src="Image URL"/>
<img src="Image URL"/>
</div>
Replace the Image URL text with the image addresses that you want to appear on the gallery, considering that the last image is the first to be displayed.

If you want to add this slideshow inside a post, go to your dashboard and create a New Post, then paste the code in the HTML section.

That's it! Now, you can enjoy this simple image gallery on your blog and although, it has no display options or settings, it is without a doubt a gallery that will draw the attention of your readers.

Note: if you have already jQuery in your template, please delete the line in red.

Step 4. Next, search (CTRL + F) for this tag:
]]></b:skin>
Step 5. Above the ]]></b:skin> tag, paste the following CSS style:
#myGallery {
width: 100%;
height: 400px;
}
#myGallery img {
border: 2px solid #52697E;
}
a.loading {
background: url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Ydp4sEJnaA8/UmzUYmPuLNI/AAAAAAAAEbw/9O8Qa2gV2Cc/s1600/ajax_small.gif) no-repeat center;
}
.spacegallery {
position: relative;
overflow: hidden;
}
.spacegallery img {
position: absolute;
left: 50%;
}
.spacegallery a {
position: absolute;
z-index: 1000;
display: block;
top: 0;
left: 0;
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
}
Step 6. Hit the Save template button to save the changes.

Step 7. Finally, go to Layout > Add a Gadget > HTML/Javascript and copy-paste the code below:
<div class="spacegallery" id="myGallery">
<img src="Image URL"/>
<img src="Image URL"/>
<img src="Image URL"/>
<img src="Image URL"/>
<img src="Image URL"/>
</div>
Replace the Image URL text with the image addresses that you want to appear on the gallery, considering that the last image is the first to be displayed.

If you want to add this slideshow inside a post, go to your dashboard and create a New Post, then paste the code in the HTML section.

That's it! Now, you can enjoy this simple image gallery on your blog and although, it has no display options or settings, it is without a doubt a gallery that will draw the attention of your readers.
