4.Now to implement this, just copy this code wherever you want the Slideshow to appear:



<div id="container">
<div id="example">
<div id="slides">
<div class="slides_container">
<div class="slide">
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/jliba/4665625073/" title="145.365 - Happy Bokeh Thursday! | Flickr - Photo Sharing!" target="_blank"><img src="http://slidesjs.com/examples/images-with-captions/img/slide-1.jpg" width="300" height="270" alt="Slide 1"></a>
<div class="caption" style="bottom:0">

</div>
</div>



The highlighted lines in the above code are the Slides so you can change them and modify them,give titles,etc

5.Now save the Post/Page.

Note: Please Host all the files on free hosting service like DropBox
 or Blogspot itself!


Another Important thing to note is that all the images used in this tutorial like Next button ,Previous button ,etc are all hosted on Google Code service which are the fastest and most reliable servers on the internet with the least downtime.So you can easily implement this with no hassles for Image Hosting.
