Yesterday’s post about Backstretch, a jQuery plug-in that dynamically-resizes your background image, got me thinking more about the slideshow options. Backstretch could be easily configured to a slideshow, but lacked some extra creative effects you would want if you implemented the slideshow option.
If you want your background image to change or implement a dynamically-sized slideshow, bgStretcher II is what you’ll want to try:
bgStretcher IIAs the web is viewed on multiple screen sizes and mobile devices, tools like this are awesome.
bgStretcher II is easy to setup and has plenty of creative options:
- Transition Effects
- Slide Direction
- Prev & Next Selectors
Also, with the ability to implement the Prev and Next selectors, you could use bgStretcher II to setup a photography demo reel. Drop in some hi-res images, and the demo reel would dynamically fit fullscreen no matter the size of screen.
There’s a lot of potential and flexibility with some creative bits of code and bgStretcher II.
