Javascript Slideshow: Fading effect


Recommended Posts

Below is code I have for a slideshow:

 <div id="thepic" valign="center"><input type="image" src="ArrowLeft.png" value="<" onclick="move('down')" id="left"/><input type="image" src="ArrowRight.png" value=">" onclick="move('up')" id="right"/></div><input type="image" src="Stop.png" value="stop" onclick="pause()" id="stop" /><script type="text/javascript">var pics=["Placeholder.png", "Placeholder.png", "Placeholder.png", "Placeholder.png"];pics.unshift(pics.pop())function move(dir){if(timer){clearTimeout(timer)}if(dir=="down"){pics.unshift(pics.pop())} if(dir=="up"){pics.push(pics.shift()) }timer=setTimeout(function (){move(dir)}, 5000)document.getElementById("thepic").style.backgroundImage="url("+pics[0]+")";}var timer=setTimeout(function (){move("up")}, 5000) function pause(){clearTimeout(timer);}</script></div>

I was wondering if there is a way to get a fading effect in between pictures, so it looks cleaner. What i really want is an effect like on iOS devices when you slide from picture to picture. I've seen both of these done before and I'd like to have this effect. Thanks!
