Gallery Slideshow Transition - change animation?

Recommended Posts

Have seen a few similar threads on here without solutions...

The default settings for the slideshow block seem to be that each slide's opacity goes up, then down, and then the slide is hidden.

I would like for a smooth transition between the images in my slideshow, which each build upon the one before. So in theory, it should be: opacity goes up, does NOT go down, slide remains VISIBLE.

I've tried so many things here and can't figure it out! Any advice? Thanks in advance 🙂


FYI - I have tried making each slide's background the same color as the site (rather than transparent) and adding this code, but then I lose the ability to fade IN each slide. 

.slide {opacity: 1 !important;}

Hi there!

The Squarespace stock animations for the slideshows, carousels, and the likes is notoriously difficult to edit. In fact, there's very little that you can do that would not achieve other undesirable effects. In my experience there are quite a few "hacks" or paid plugins that might help if you really wanted to stay "in-house" with the design.

I'd suggest evaluating whether or not your specific use-case, design, and website would benefit from a third-party JavaScript library. I'd be more than happy to help you set that up or point you in the right direction.
