Dynamic Picture Slider for Website.

I am developing a website for a client and they need a dynamic picture slider, means  after i will hand over them the website, there help desk people should be able to upload the pictures in the slider.

One example of it is on this link.

you click on an image, and it opens up in a new window, where you can go to next and previous image, and you can print as well.....so similar to that.....
and i want to know how i can integrate that to the website..

Thanks.

You should do that by scripting language like php with a database.
You can achieve that with pure html and javascript but you have to make every page manually and this is very time comsuming.

I don't get your actual requirement. Please describe more to propose a solution. If you want a complete photo gallery with slider effect and want easy uploading - why don't you use E2 Gallery.

You can easily use E2 photo gallery on multiple pages. But till now you can't use multiple E2 gallery on a single page.

You don't have to put the name of E2 interactive on your page.

do you know any website who is using this E2 gallery...
i just wanted to see it in action, i have seen the demo....but i just wanted to see it on a working website...

biztigerCommented:
As there is no requirement from E2 Gallery to post the name of website where they are using E2 Gallery - It is quite impossible to find any website who are using it.

Try lightbox, an example is on this page: http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/ (The image set)

All instructions on setting it up are on the site.

The arrows for previous and next image are not appearing.....i followed the steps.....i have 5 images....but next and previous buttons are not appearing..

darren-w-Commented:
Have another look at the instructions here http://www.huddletogether.com/projects/lightbox2/#how

If you unzip the files and folders as they are it should work fine, I suspect you have moved the images/css folder else where.

the css points to the back and previews images like so ../images/nextlabel.gif

so the images should be in a folder called images

The folder layout should look like this:

/
  -> /css/lightbox.css
  -> /images/nextlabel.gif

:D
