Access and upload images directly from Unsplash.com with the latest MetaSlider update

We are excited to announce that MetaSlider users now have the option of using the all new Unsplash.com library feature.

When creating a new slideshow in MetaSlider, you now have the option to search and add images from a Unsplash.com tab that behaves just like your very own personal massive media library. This incredibly handy new feature means there is no need to leave your WordPress page to search for images, and then try to remember where they are saved when adding them to your slideshow.

With our new feature, the search and upload of images with Upsplash.com can now all be done from within the MetaSlider plugin.

Upsplash.com has over 850,000 completely free to use (do whatever you want with them) high-resolution photos that have been contributed by a large community of photographers from all over the world. Thousands of additional photos are added every day, with the types of images available covering a huge amount of topics and themes. With so much choice there is a very good chance that Upsplash.com has the type of photos you are looking for.

How to use the new Upsplash.com feature in MetaSlider

Just select “Add Slide” and click on the “Unsplash Library” tab.

 

Use the “Search unsplash.com” search option to find the images you want.

 

Select your favourite and click “Add to slideshow”.

 

The Unsplash.com image you added automatically uploads to your library and is added to your new slideshow. It really is that easy!

MetaSlider Pro launch schedule slider feature

MetaSlider Pro launch schedule slider feature

MetaSlider Pro customers will now have the option of using our exclusive “Scheduled Slider” feature. This feature has been specially designed to give users the ability to schedule exactly when a slider will be displayed on your website.

If you own an online WooCommerce store and have slider updates for specific holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter, you can see the value in being able to schedule your image slider ahead of time. The schedule slider feature allows you to create a specific slider theme at your convenience and at any time of the year. For example, if you wanted to make a Christmas slider, just add your images, schedule it to only appear from December 1st to December 31st and enter the slider code into your site. MetaSlider does the rest!

With this feature you can be assured that your website is always up to date with the latest correct slider branding.

MetaSlider is available for download here. Sign up and download it to your WordPress website today and let the fun begin.

Massive new MetaSlider update now gives users access to professional slider themes

Massive new MetaSlider update now gives users access to professional slider themes

We’re committed to MetaSlider remaining the most popular WordPress slider plugin so we have been hard at work for months, developing some incredible new features that we’re thrilled to finally get to share with you.

MetaSlider now has 11 stunning new professional slider themes. They are wonderful, adding and switching instant style to any slider, and we’re sure you’ll love these as much as we do.

The best part is, if you’re a MetaSlider user, you can have full access to all of these themes completely free of charge.

Furthermore, if you buy the MetaSlider Addon Pack you can create your own slider themes, so they look exactly how you want them to.

Here’s a brief outline of the new themes. Have a browse and then jump right in and start having fun playing around with different looks.

New MetaSlider themes:

Cubic: a simple, slick square design that looks good on darker images.

Outline: a clean, subtle theme that features block arrows and bold design.

Bubble: a fun, circular design to brighten up your website. This works well with dark images.

Simply Dark: a minimalistic, no-frills design that blends in well with most themes.

Jenga: a smart-looking theme with a quirky vertical focus.

Disjoint: a futuristic, linear design that goes will with a dark background.

Blend: a simple theme that neatly blends into any existing website.

Precognition: a theme with special additional functionality that uses image titles as the slide navigation.

Radix: a unique design, clean and sophisticated.

Highway: a bold and clear design that works well on darker images.

The Architekt: a minimalist theme that gives all the attention to your beautiful images.

All of these wonderful new themes are available right now as part of our MetaSlider plugin. To help you choose which theme best enhances your current web design, there’s even a preview feature, so you can test them out on the theme viewer. What’s more, it even allows advanced users to programmatically apply their own themes to slideshows.
