If you visited yesterday, you viewed my slideshow for Christmas wreaths recently added to our Tally Tales Etsy Store. Today, I want to show you how I created it.
I used cincopa to create my gallery slideshow. As you can see below, you can create various media types through this site. Make sure you select "slideshow" if that's the project you want to create.
Next, select the skin you want to use. The "skin" basically means the presentation for your slideshow. Each skin features a different style, or format, for the presentation. They have quite a few from which to choose, and you can preview each one before you actually make a selection.
Add your pictures by either dragging and dropping them into the upload box or by manually choosing which files to upload.
After customizing your photos (or not), simply submit the information for the final step! Your gallery will be created, which you can easily preview. If you are satisfied, you are only a couple of steps away from adding your slideshow to your blog! Make sure you choose the correct format for the embed data. As you can see, this tool works for both Wordpress and Blogger, as well as a variety of other media sites.
Once you click "copy," a note will appear to let you know that you have saved the embed code to your clipboard. Simply paste it into the HTML page on your blogger post, wherever you want your slideshow to appear.
It is literally that easy!
Another thing I like about this slideshow is that it will appear and function when you are in "preview" mode for your blog post. So, if you create your post and click "preview," you should be able to view the entire post along with the fully-functioning slideshow.
I hope this little tutorial is helpful! Happy blogging! :)
