<div id="camera_wrap"> 
  <div data-src="%resource(image1.jpg)%" data-fx="simpleFade">
    <div> Caption One </div>
  <div data-src="%resource(image2.jpg)%" data-fx="simpleFade">
    <div> Caption Two </div>
  <div data-src="%resource(image3.jpg)%" data-fx="simpleFade">
    <div> Caption Three </div>

Transition Slider Effects

Step 1: After you have added images to your slider you will notice a data-fx value after the resource names. You can change the data-fx value to one of the values below to get a different transition effect.


Example: data-fx=”simpleFade” would be changed to data-fx=”curtainTopRight” for a curtain transition effect.
