You would have seen my last post peel add for blogger for attracting your visitors to subscribe your blog or show of your advertiser or show of some other important stuff.Some hacks like these i previously wrote were image hover effect,images reflection in blogger posts and zoom your images in blogger posts,which might also help you a lot.

Now lets carry on with an important tutorial of how to add the image slider to your blog.

Just see it at top below the blog header.

Download this Zip file and get two javascript files from it for backup.

Now after getting these two scripts you can upload them to your own server,if you want else dont know where to upload check my this post on where to upload .js files.

Now Just login to your blogger account Then Go To > Layout > Edit/Html > Press Ctrl+ F

Now search for </head> and place the below javascript codes before this tag.

<script src=’http://btemplatescripts.googlecode.com/files/slider.js’ type=’text/javascript’/>
<script src=’http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.2.6/jquery.js’ type=’text/javascript’/>

In the above codes you will see red coloured lines just replace them with the link of your file which you downloaded and uploaded to your server, if dont want then also you can use my above links.

Now Search for this code ]]></b:skin> and add the below css above it.

#myslides{

background:#000 url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_xfdD6S9fOk4/Sd1SjSaUrXI/AAAAAAAAA20/ndvDf0nTslY/s1600/mslid.jpg) repeat-x;
width: 650px;
height:165px;
margin-bottom:5px;
}

.stepcarousel{
position: relative; /*leave this value alone*/
overflow: scroll; /*leave this value alone*/
width: 554px; /*Width of Carousel Viewer itself*/
height: 160px; /*Height should enough to fit largest content’s height*/
margin: 0px 48px 5px 48px;

}

.stepcarousel .belt{
position: absolute; /*leave this value alone*/
left: 0;
top: 0;
}

.stepcarousel .panel{
float: left; /*leave this value alone*/
overflow: hidden; /*clip content that go outside dimensions of holding panel DIV*/
margin: 20px 10px ; /*margin around each panel*/
width:170px; /*Width of each panel holding each content. If removed, widths should be individually defined on each content DIV then. */
background:#0e1829;
height:120px;
border:1px solid #1d2c44;

}
.stepcarousel .panel p{
text-align: left; /*leave this value alone*/
overflow: hidden; /*clip content that go outside dimensions of holding panel DIV*/
margin: 5px 5px ; /*margin around each panel*/

}

.stepcarousel .panel h2{
text-align: left; /*leave this value alone*/
height:20px;
overflow: hidden; /*clip content that go outside dimensions of holding panel DIV*/
margin: 2px 5px ; /*margin around each panel*/
font-size:16px;
font-weight:bold;
text-align:center;
font-family:Georgia,century gothic,Arial,verdana, sans-serif;
}

.stepcarousel .panel img{
float: left; /*leave this value alone*/
background:#0E1829; /*clip content that go outside dimensions of holding panel DIV*/
margin: 5px 5px 5px 5px; /*margin around each panel*/
padding:0px 0px;
}

Above in code is red line with url of background image of slider,you can also change it to adjust your blog.

Special Step

Just Find for /head tag and place the below script above it.

<style type=’text/css’>
#mygallery{overflow: hidden;}
</style>

<script type=’text/javascript’>
stepcarousel.setup({
galleryid: &#39;mygallery&#39;, //id of carousel DIV
beltclass: &#39;belt&#39;, //class of inner &quot;belt&quot; DIV containing all the panel DIVs
panelclass: &#39;panel&#39;, //class of panel DIVs each holding content
panelbehavior: {speed:500, wraparound:true, persist:true},
defaultbuttons: {enable: true, moveby: 3, leftnav: [&#39;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_v5IxGTiMTD8/SxOlAIA_ZZI/AAAAAAAAAfg/ELVwF1qY8M8/s400/left.jpg&#39;, -48, 0], rightnav: [&#39;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_v5IxGTiMTD8/SxOlAVn-OvI/AAAAAAAAAfo/kMJcmlXZKCs/s400/right.jpg&#39;, 0, 0]},
statusvars: [&#39;statusA&#39;, &#39;statusB&#39;, &#39;statusC&#39;], //register 3 variables that contain current panel (start), current panel (last), and total panels
contenttype: [&#39;external&#39;] //content setting [&#39;inline&#39;] or [&#39;external&#39;, &#39;path_to_external_file&#39;]
})

</script>

The green lines are the images of side arrows to make it scroll left and right you can make and add your also to make it look different.And in pink are number to control speed of slider and no of images to be shown at once in slider,so make it adjust acc. to you.If you increase images to be shown from 3 to any number then you have to increase the size of it also in slider css which is written below.

Now Save Your Template.All the coding part is finished,now just how to add images to slider.

Just go to Layout > Page Elements > Add A Gadget > Html/Javascript

And add the below links of images and posts in it,in the format i am writing below.
