1) Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v2.4)

2) http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fadeinslideshow.htm

3) I am looking for a way to allow the user to speed up or slow down the speed of the slideshow. Can you help?

<script type="text/javascript">
var mygallery2=new fadeSlideShow({
wrapperid: "fadeshow2", //ID of blank DIV on page to house Slideshow
dimensions: [250, 180], //width/height of gallery in pixels. Should reflect dimensions of largest image
imagearray: [
["http://i26.tinypic.com/11l7ls0.jpg", "#what", "", "Nothing beats relaxing next to the pool when the weather is hot."],
["http://i29.tinypic.com/xp3hns.jpg", "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cave", "_new", "Some day I'd like to explore these caves!"],
["http://i31.tinypic.com/119w28m.jpg", "", "", "What a beautiful scene with everything changing colors."] //<--no trailing comma after very last image element!
displaymode: {type:'auto', pause:4000, cycles:0, wraparound:false, minpause: 1000, maxpause: 7000},
persist: false, //remember last viewed slide and recall within same session?
fadeduration: 500, //transition duration (milliseconds)
descreveal: "always",
togglerid: "fadeshow2toggler",
oninit: function(){
var s = this.setting.displaymode, $ = jQuery, sm = $('#thespeed').val(s.pause/1000 + ' sec');
$('#slower').bind('click', function(e){
if(s.pause < s.maxpause){
s.pause += 500;
sm.val(s.pause/1000 + ' sec');
$('#faster').bind('click', function(e){
if(s.pause > s.minpause){
s.pause -= 500;
sm.val(s.pause/1000 + ' sec');

Don't miss the added comma (red) after the togglerid value.

<div id="fadeshow2"></div>

<div id="fadeshow2toggler" style="width:250px; text-align:center; margin-top:10px">
<a href="#" class="prev"><img src="http://i31.tinypic.com/302rn5v.png" style="border-width:0" /></a> <span class="status" style="margin:0 50px; font-weight:bold"></span> <a href="#" class="next"><img src="http://i30.tinypic.com/lzkux.png" style="border-width:0" /></a>

<div><input type="text" id="thespeed"><a href="#" id="faster">Faster</a> <a href="#" id="slower">Slower</a></div>

Many thanks, That's exactly what I was looking for.

The only change I made was to:

<input type="text" id="thespeed" size="7" readonly="readonly" STYLE="background-color: #FFFFFF;">

This element is only for display of the current speed, right?

Yes. In fact, you may skip it entirely and use just the faster and slower links, which could be buttons or images, whatever you like.
