A wedding is a special event in everyone’s life. Creating a website where everyone can share the couple’s happiest moments is getting more and more popular. Special websites, like a wedding site deserve a beautiful look, like this Wedding Page template.
How to set up a showcase slider that looks and behaves like this template?
Showcase sliders have special responsive behavior. You can set a a size for the slider itself, and one for the slides inside. Thanks to this, you can control the amount of slides that will show up in your slider. For instance, if you set your slider size to be 1500px wide, you can make 3 500px wide slides appear with 0px slide distance. Being able to specify different slider and slide sizes creates many possibilities for your slider.
In this example, we took advantage of another great feature, the Maximum slider height. This setting prevents the slider from getting taller than the set size. We set it to 700px, the same as the height of the slider, which means as the slider gets wider, more slides will be visible. This setup is close to the best way to set up a showcase type slider.
Showcase sliders need a certain amount of slides to create a full carousel. Since this slider has only 3 slides, the last slide can’t appear on the left side of the first one. This creates an interesting effect, which is great for story telling.
How to create the Wedding Gallery layout?
The Wedding Gallery slider’s layout looks beautiful and unique. What makes it special is the row with the small images, which break out of their grid and cover a part of the big image on the left. Creating this layout is quite simple.
Create a row with two columns.
- Put an image layer on each column and select the image you want to display.
- Remove the paddings from the columns and row. (Press and hold the Shift key to adjust the paddings on the opposite sides, too.)
- Select the row and add a top margin on it. This slider has 20px top margin.
- Give a negative left margin to the row. This slider has -80px left margin.
