jQuery Control Appearance of Div and Slide up after Text Appears

Hi all,

I would like to add an effect to two elements, one is for my text, how do I modify the code below so that there is a slide from left to right?

and I would like to create to slide a colored background, div from bottom to up and show a link, the link part I got figured out as it's the title within var photos = [ { that turns into a link, but how do I add now a background with a width of 930px and and a height of 50px slide up and a link appears? but this almost must be done first and then only show the text.

See my previous answered post as it's modifying the same code: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/JavaScript/Q_26866625.html

You can probably use the Animate method from jQuery and the Comlete method. Once the animation is complete you could inject the link into the div at that point so the slide happens completely before the text appears.

I've tried that, I can't modify the above code to get that feature working.
