Update: New Slideshow Features

Photobucket is excited to announce updates to album slideshows. This update makes sharing slideshows easier and more engaging.  

You can now embed slideshows into your website or blog.  Here’s an example: 

Slideshows now update automatically as you add more photos into the album. No need to refresh, anyone viewing your slideshow will see the content as you intend it to be viewed.

Advanced features:
To better meet the diverse needs of our users, adjusting the size of embedded slideshows is now possible. The ability to adjust dimensions allows users to customize slideshows to best fit the page where they are displayed. When pasting your embed code, manually adjust the height and width parameters to make your slideshow bigger or smaller than our default size.

While the slideshow will play by default when visitors arrive to your page, you can also turn off autoplay by adding this parameter to the album URL source when pasting the embed code:

?autoplay=0

Example with this added:

Fans of the old slideshow – don’t worry, we’ve left that in place for you to continue using.

Stay tuned for more slideshow updates!
