Can anyone recommend a free slide-show plug-in that allows you to put text on the pictures? See: http://www.azinspect.com/

I need it to be simple and easy to change slides often.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Without actually going in and looking I seem to remember one called NextGen or something. If you go into your Plugins and click "popular" its on the first page.

I remember seeing something about slide show stuff.

There are plug-ins that you can install that will do the slideshows. Just do Add New under plug-ins and search for slideshow.

The best slideshow plugin that I have found is Superb Slideshow. However, I was wondering if there was a slideshow plugin with the option that allows you to add text to the images.

I did a search as suggested (before I posted this inquiry) but came up empty handed. I was wondering if anyone knew of something I haven't found.

The closest I can find is a new service call kizoa.com. It's a pretty cool tool with lots of features. The drawback for me is I am not able to adjust the size of the slideshow to fit my site.

Thanks again for the assistance.

I really would love if they can add a customizable slideshow to the top of the post area to socrates. So we can add pics and text whatever to it will keep looking for plugins but there's a ton of them and have to test them out so far have not seen one that does what I want.
