Most web developers have at least heard about the many JavaScript photo slider plugins. These often utilize a library such as jQuery to construct plug-and-play galleries within just a few minutes. Yet after so many years of project growth we can find dozens of unique examples and animations in this field.

Developers have become creative applying custom techniques with jQuery UI, MooTools, Prototype, and other JS libraries. In the gallery below I’ve put together 25 extremely unique implementations of JavaScript photo sliders on websites. Both the interaction and user interface play a huge role in this type of page element. With any luck you can put together a few ideas to implement a slideshow into your own projects.
