All New Image Carousel Addon for a Neat Showcasing

Carousels are a tricky thing, it’s very likely to confuse them with sliders. Some people refer to the relation between them as “tomayto, tomahto”, others just don’t care. However, there’s a slight fundamental difference. Although it can’t be defined with words, the difference is visible to the eyes. They both display a collection of images but the difference lies in the versatility of content. Sliders let you animate a wide variety of content altogether which results in cluttering the display. It’s like bringing a gun to a knife-fight.

You get 4 layouts in the Image Carousel addon

The Image Carousel addon came to birth from this idea. To empower you what you need for creating a stylish image carousel, we have introduced the Image Carousel addon. It lets you showcase a clean, neat and aesthetic presentation of your products/features sections/portfolio showcasing. Image Carousel is the sharpest tool to highlight a collection of images.

These are the amazing features you get in Image Carousel 

Single Item: Focusing on one particular element grabs the users’ attention to that item. Therefore, to highlight one thing at a time, single item showcasing is the best way to do it. This puts the spotlight on the particular item that is currently showing.

Multiple Items: Use this when you want to make your visitors hooked on certain products that you have put on display. Three layouts of the addon out of four, lets you showcase multiple items.

Height Adjustment: We know the viewport varies for different screen/device types forcing the element sizes to shrink according to screens. Thus, we have introduced the freedom to control the height of any element regardless of the device type.

Gutter Control: To keep the screen clutter-free, it is important to put a gap in between the images. The “Item Gutter” function lets you control the empty space between images as you seem fit.

Responsive Display: The Image Carousel addon gives you full control over the items you want to show. You can define the number of items to be displayed on different device types. Firstly, choose the device type, then define the “Number of Items to Show”.

Center Mode: The Center Mode option is available in two layouts of the Image Carousel addon to highlight the center image. The Center Mode Padding function lets you define the adjacent padding area.

Swipe Enabled: The carousel items in the Image Carousel addon supports desktop mouse dragging. Also, in touch screens, users can swipe through images.

Autoplay and Animation Control: Since the whole point of carousels is to showcase images. We found it essential that you have complete control over display animations. You should have control over whether you want to autopay the images and how fast or slow you want to showcase them. You can also define the interval time.

Controller Styling: You get two navigation controllers with the Image Carousel addon. Both Arrow Controller and Image Controller come with rich styling options. You can customize the styling in normal and hover states for the Arrow controller. And the Bullet controller lets you change the styling for the normal and active states.

Most importantly, the issue that caused fluctuation at first loading of an interaction-applied page has been addressed.

SP Page Builder v3.6.4 is not just a regular update. We have put in a tremendous amount of work as always in improving the tool to make it even better than what it was yesterday.
