Is Slideshow: Reel Automation possible?

Go to solution Solved by JayVanDyke,

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to use the Slideshow: Reel option (in version 7.1) to show a set of images right at the start of my page. Annoyingly, this is the only slideshow option that doesn't offer any kind of automation, so you need to move to the next image using arrows. This is particularly infuriating since there is an option to completely hide the arrows, which is pointless to have, since then it wouldn't be possible to move the images at all, given the lack of automation. 

Is there any solution code solution to add the automation to this obviously poorly conceived gallery option? Thanks!

I think this will work. It's not the solution for the Gallery Slideshow Reel I was looking for, but in the end  it will look and function the same. For anyone else interested in using this option: The only minor issue is that for images with different aspects ratios, they will have to be individually optimized if you want to show them un-cropped AND aligned, so they need to be re-saved with the same pixel height. Also uploaded one by one as opposed to bulk uploading available in the Gallery. 

Thank you!! @JayVanDyke
