Top 10 Images Slideshow Scripts (2018 updated)

When visiting your website, the section that visitors pay attention most is your slideshow section. There are hundreds of scripts for web-based slideshow out there, but I just want to share with you my top favorite slideshow script that can help you make an effective presentation on your website:


Jssor Slider is a touch swipe image slideshow with 360+ JavaScript slideshow effects. When you touch Jssor Slider, it will freeze the animation and swipe slides to the direction that your finger moves to. There are more than 360 different effects, you can check all of them here. My own favourite slideshow effects are the simple fade and carousel slider.


S3Slider a jQuery Slideshow with three different features and displaying sides. You can easily adjust the size of the slider and  delay the change speed. Oh, and it comes with a really good documentation, too.

Sequence JS

Sequence JS is a JavaScript slideshow based on a CSS framework. It’s meant to be used for creating sliders, banners, presentations and other step-based applications.

If free pre-built themes aren’t enough for you, check out their own theme shop. You can also simply order your custom-made theme. But as I look at it, you really do get all you need in the free version, plus there are quite a bit free themes available.

Slide JS

Slide JS is a jQuery plugin that is responsive, has touch support, easy setup, and CSS3 transitions. It’s great to be displayed as a starting page of your website, and it is free. It also has full documentation, check the live preview on their home page.

JavaScript TinySlideshow

This dynamic JavaScript slideshow is a lightweight (5kb) and free image gallery / slideshow script. You can easily set it to auto-display the images, set the scroll speed, thumbnail opacity or to disable thumbnail slider. I wanted to include it in this collection because it is so lightweight.


bxSlider is a jQuery content slider plugin that is light weight and easy to use with some features are: numeric navigation, auto mode, controls of the movement.


slideViewerPro is a fully customizable jQuery image gallery engine wich allows to create outstanding sliding image galleries for your projects and/or interactive galleries within blog posts.

jQuery Panel Gallery Plugin

jQuery Panel Gallery Plugin has a best feature is not one image needs to be sliced or edited to work with it, the script is just 8 KB and each image can have its own fade direction.

Nivo Slider

Nivo Slider is the most awesome jQuery image slider out with 9 unique transition effects, simple clean & valid markup, supports linking images and keyboard navigation.
