The code below is a modified copy from the one at:

I just removed the small scroller an incorporated images. You need to supply the content in pausecontent array. One element per "slide", but you can put HTML markup/code within each element.
Currently it pauses for 3 seconds (1000 milliseconds = 1 second):
new pausescroller(pausecontent, "pscroller1", "someclass", 3000)

So if you want it faster or slower, change the 3000 on that line of code.
