How do I create an image slideshow?

An image slideshow is a great way of adding content to your Create website. It can be used to promote products or show off your photography.

You can create a slideshow using any of the content blocks that allow you to upload your own image.

For this example, we’ll use the ‘Image’ content block.

First of all, you can follow the steps below to add the ‘Image’ content block to your webpage:

  1. Log into your Create account

  2. Click Content on the top menu

  3. Click Edit This Page (the pencil icon) next to the page you would like to edit

  4. Click the Add Block button in the bottom left-hand corner

  5. Drag and drop the Image content block onto the desired area on the page.

Hover your mouse over the image you wish to turn into a slideshow and the Image Settings icon will display.


If you then click Image Settings, you’ll be presented with the below box

If you click Select this will bring up a window allowing you to select which images you would like to use. The images presented will be the images you have stored in the Images area under the Content option in the top menu. You also have the option to upload images straight from your computer or search for an image in Unsplash.

Selecting multiple images and then clicking Continue will then display the images you have chosen in a list.

From this section, you can add links to any of the images by clicking the link icon next to an image. This will allow you to set up a link from that image to any page on your website or to a specific URL of your choosing.


Clicking the Slideshow Settings you can choose whether you would like to display left and right arrows on either side of your images or even slider dots below the image - both settings allow your customer to flick through your slideshow at their leisure. You can also set the Auto Play duration.

 

You also have the option to choose an Auto Play duration which will automatically flick through your photos after a short delay.

Once you have selected your images and set the Slideshow settings, clicking Done will complete the Slideshow set up.
