Step 1 : Include Below stylesheet in the head section of your html template

<style type=”text/css”>
.pics h2 span{
position: absolute;
margin-left: 10px;
margin-bottom: 26px;
bottom: 6px;
color: white;
font: bold 16px Arial, “Trebuchet MS”, Verdana, Tahoma;
letter-spacing: -1px;
background: rgb(0, 0, 0); /* fallback color */
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.7);
padding: 0 10px 10px 10px;
.pics {
height: 272px;
width: 342px;
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
overflow: hidden;
position: relative;
.pics img { height: 250px; width: 320px; padding: 10px; border: 1px solid #ccc; background-color: #eee; top:0; left:0 }
.pics img {
-moz-border-radius: 10px; -webkit-border-radius: 10px;

Step 2 : Include Jquery version 1.5 (This is the version we have tested) and jquery.cycle.all.js (Jquery Cycle Lite Plugin) in the head section of your HTML Template

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5/jquery.min.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://malsup.github.com/jquery.cycle.all.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
$.fn.cycle.defaults.timeout = 6000;
fx: ‘fade’,
sync: 0,
delay: -4000

Here, you can change the “delay” time for how quick/slow photos should load.

Step 3 : Construct a div which holds the pictures. Add the below content in the body section of your HTML Template

<div id=”s1″ class=”pics”>
<a href=”http://techglimpse.com/index.php/lg-announces-5-inch-display-smartphone-440-ppi.php”> <img src=”https://techglimpse.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/lg-5-inch-smartphone-display-technology.jpg” alt=”” width=”320″ height=”250″ /></a>
<h2><span>LG announces 5 inch display….</span></h2>

<div id=”s1″>
<a href=”http://techglimpse.com/index.php/nokia-lumia-710-london-markets.php”> <img src=”https://techglimpse.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/nokia-lumia-710.jpg” alt=”” width=”320″ height=”250″ /></a>
<h2><span>Nokia Lumia 710 in….</span></h2>

<div id=”s1″>
<a href=”http://techglimpse.com/index.php/google-virtual-brain-neural-networks.php”> <img src=”https://techglimpse.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Google-_-Advanced-AI1.png” alt=”” width=”320″ height=”250″ /></a>
<h2><span> Smart INSECT- Toyota.s cloud-enabled…. </span></h2>

<div id=”s1″>
<a href=”http://techglimpse.com/index.php/smart-insect-toyota-electric-car-concept.php”> <img src=”https://techglimpse.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/style-doors.jpg” alt=”” width=”320″ height=”250″ /></a>
<h2><span> Google.s creates advanced AI for….</span></h2>

Here, you can put the title of the photo or description about the photo in between the h2 span tags.

Thanks to Jquery Cycle Lite Plugin as we have used it in this example. For different transitions and animations look at the above website.
