The Creative Portraits slider is a perfect start for Photo Studios, Modell Agencies, Webshops and other websites too. This slider is a good possibility to show some interesting picture, portfolio and information about models, products, articles or anything else. The slider takes advantage of static layers and dynamic contents with intensive scroll effects and a flexible interface. The slider uses the masking option for the opening / ending layer transitions and a custom transition for the slide movement.
The essence of the static layer is the adjustability of layer animate in and out. There is an opportunity in the transition settings to set the layer visible forever, so the layer will never animate out or set a slide where the layer will animate out. Static layers allow you to easily create interface for the slider. In this case, there are static layers for the names, navigation arrows, image container and for the dynamic content container.
Static layer - options
With the Creative Slider you are able to create dynamic sliders, which can base on an image folder, Joomla articles, K2 items, or even products from webshop components. Every type has many placeholders, which can be placed into layers and will acting like shortcodes. In this case dynamic content use for the grey container in the right bottom. In this static div, there are some dynamic information about a Joomla article, like the title, created date and a clickable more info link. In the left of this, there is a container for the article intro image which also changes dynamically.
