With Flipping Tiles
This slideshow changes slides in four flipping tiles. The actual effect is done by gradually reducing the width of each tile, swapping images once the width reaches 0, and then expanding the tile back to its normal width. Once all four tiles have changed, the image is allowed to remain for a short time. Then the cycle repeats itself. This version of the slideshow requires PHP and GD Library support in order to generate the tiles. It is compatible with either the manual or the automatic slide file list generating scripts.
When I started to create this version, I had intended to rely only on CSS to create the tiles - positioning the image with an offset that would only display the portion of the image appropriate for the tile. This would certainly have been more efficient in terms of server load and speed, but I was concerned that it wouldn't be visually pleasing. So I created a PHP script that generates the tiles dynamically.
