Fun With Slideshows

I recently found this cool - and FREE - website/tool thing. It's called ImageLoop. Here's their link: Image Loop
You use it to make your own slideshow then just copy the small snippet of code to embed the slideshow anywhere you want. That's the easy part.

The hard part is figuring out what's happening behind the scenes. I'm still figuring it out myself. Your photos get stored on ImageLoop and you get a public page like this one: where people can view your shows, comment on them, rate them, etc. You can make shows private if you want so that they don't show up on this public list. And you can make shows and allow other people to add photos to them. I know that would be useful for something, just not sure what yet.

But if you just want a slideshow to put on your webpage - which is all I wanted- this is a fun and easy way to do it. There are tons of design options. Have fun! Here's one I made for a sample:

Even cooler when it has dragons and jewels and stuff. :D
