jQuery Image Slideshow with Semi-Transparent Caption Example

Feb 18, 2013

Here I will explain how to create simple jQuery image slideshow with semi-transparent caption example or simple image slideshow with semi-transparent caption with jQuery in

In previous articles I explained
jQuery Simple Slideshow example, jQuery image slideshow with text overlay, jQuery image slideshow with next and previous buttons and many articles relating to JavaScript, jQuery, Now I will explain how to create simple jQuery image slideshow with semi-transparent caption in

To implement this we need to write the code like as shown below

<html xmlns="">
<title>JQuery Photo Slider with Semi Transparent Caption</title>
<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
//Execute the slideShow
function slideShow() {
//Set the opacity of all images to 0
    $('#slideshow a').css({ opacity: 0.0 });
//Get the first image and display it (set it to full opacity)
    $('#slideshow a:first').css({ opacity: 1.0 });
//Set the caption background to semi-transparent
    $('#slideshow .caption').css({ opacity: 0.7 });
//Resize the width of the caption according to the image width
    $('#slideshow .caption').css({ width: $('#slideshow a').find('img').css('width') });
//Get the caption of the first image from REL attribute and display it
    $('#slideshow .content').html($('#slideshow a:first').find('img').attr('rel'))
.animate({ opacity: 0.7 }, 400);
//Call the gallery function to run the slideshow, 6000 = change to next image after 6 seconds
setInterval('gallery()', 3000);
function gallery() {
//if no IMGs have the show class, grab the first image
    var current = ($('#slideshow') ? $('#slideshow') : $('#slideshow a:first'));
//Get next image, if it reached the end of the slideshow, rotate it back to the first image
    var next = (( ? (('caption')) ? $('#slideshow a:first') : : $('#slideshow a:first'));
//Get next image caption
var caption = next.find('img').attr('rel');
//Set the fade in effect for the next image, show class has higher z-index
next.css({ opacity: 0.0 })
.animate({ opacity: 1.0 }, 1000);
//Hide the current image
current.animate({ opacity: 0.0 }, 1000)

//Set the opacity to 0 and height to 1px
$('#slideshow .caption').animate({ opacity: 0.0 }, { queue: false, duration: 0 }).animate({ height: '1px' }, { queue: true, duration: 300 });
//Animate the caption, opacity to 0.7 and heigth to 100px, a slide up effect
$('#slideshow .caption').animate({ opacity: 0.7 }, 100).animate({ height: '100px' }, 500);
//Display the content
$('#slideshow .content').html(caption);
<style type="text/css">
.clear {
#slideshow {
#slideshow a {
#slideshow a img {
#slideshow {
#slideshow .caption {
#slideshow .caption .content {
#slideshow .caption .content h3 {
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div id="slideshow">
<a href="#" class="show">
<img src="" alt="1" height="300" rel="<h3>Slide1 Sample</h3>"/>

this is a great piece of code and it works well.

Question is ...
how can I vary the fonts and effects for each image. In other words, I want to have image one display text in the overlay with font1 and paginiation from the left. I want the second image to display text in the overlay with font2 and pagnition from above.
etc etc etc
