I was looking for around 4 hours straight trying to find a carousel plugin that didn’t remove 90% of features without making you pay 200+$ for it, and that’s when I landed on this plugin. The ability to actually customize your carousel, images, URLs, and MORE without paying a CRAZY amount of money is absolutely awesome. The amount of customization that you can with each slide alone is more that you can do within other carousel plugins in their entirety without paying money. THANK YOU!!!

I wanted an image carousel with all images perfectly aligned both top and bottom. I tested lots of widgets but Slider Pro was the only one that could make it exactly the way I wanted it. And the support was amazing, all my problems solved in no time! As a bonus it has a superb lightbox.

I migrated to WP about a year and a half ago. My first slider was Revolution as it came bundled with Avada. When tuning the site I discovered how slow Rev Slider was and went on to test about 8 new sliders. I’m a photographer so loading big slide shows is important to me. With that said, it doesn’t matter how big, or how many slides you are loading to suffer a major speed penalty with most sliders (especially Rev). The code itself significantly slows page loads. I wound up with Slider Pro which was by far the lightest and fastest I was able to find and test. It’s easy to use, and again, super fast. It’s hard to imagine that anyone that cares about the UE, or SEO wouldn’t make this same change. It’s not true that it has not been updated in two years, I get regular updates. You can see all the updates and activity at codecanyon. The support has been amazing as well. The developer, David, is obsessed with speed and simplicity. You should be too, sliders can be so detrimental to load times.
