Blindify: A jQuery slideshow plugin
Blindify is a jQuery plugin which creates a slideshow featuring a blinds effect transitioning (either vertical or horizontal) between a list of images. Have a look at the demo. You can download it via GitHub.
It was built based on this tutorial I published a few weeks ago. If you’re interested in the mechanics of the effect, I would encourage you to take a look.
Back on the plugin now, it requires jQuery 1.4+, and is tested in the following browsers: Google Chrome 29+, Mozilla Firefox 21+, Opera 12+, Microsoft Internet Explorer 9+, and Safari 5+.
Regarding usage and its configuration options, you’ll have to read the readme file in the GitHub repository, since it’s the most up-to-date resource.
