It is very common nowadays for a website to have a slideshow of this or that. They are everywhere allowing us to see a group of pics that all relate to the subject of the show. I think they are great...when they work. My idea of a slideshow is the ability to click from one picture to another without actually going to a different page. On many sites this is exactly how it works. These are a couple of examples of when they work:
There are many others that basically just move you from one web page to the next web page with a different picture on each. This may be me just being a whiner but in today's day and age there is no reason for this. Slideshows should be smooth without that hiccup as a new picture loads. Again this is probably the most petty thing I'll ever complain about but it seems these are seen on every site out there and I have no forgiveness for those who can't join the modern world.
