1) Script Title: Swiss Army Image Slideshow

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/swissarmy/index.htm

3) Describe problem: I'm building a responsive site and need to have scrolling photos. I've used the Swiss Army slideshow for many years (thanks John Scheuer! - it's great!) and want to use it again but can't figure out how to make the pics responsive. Does anyone know if this is even possible? I know it's been around for years but I'm hoping someone can lead me in the right direction. TIA!

I would suggest switching to Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (which can be responsive using percentage image size(s)):

and if you need more controls than it provides, add extra buttons:

Let me know if you need help. To get it to be responsive, you often have to also set an explicit percentage height (and sometimes width) for the page (body and/or html) in your style section. And transitioning to the newer script might seem hard, etc. So, as I say, if you run into problems, let me know. Best to put up a demo of your best effort though, no matter how bad or good it is - at least that will give us something to work with.

Thanks so much John! The website owner is VERY slow getting things to me so it might be a while before this is finished but I will definitely get in touch with you if I have problems. I *think* I'll be ok but appreciate your offer. :)

Sigh. She's changed her mind and now doesn't want the rotating pictures. Thanks so much for your help. Sorry to bother you for nothing!
