Slideshows display a series of images, cycling through to the next image every 10 seconds.
Images can optionally have a title and a caption, and may also be linked through to another url.
Controls exist below and on the images to allow users to pause/skip and jump to different slides.
If they exist, smaller/alternate size variations can be loaded for different devices.
