Photo crawl in WP

How do WP folks handle a photo crawl or shuffle of photos on an intro page? In my current site I’ve done this by referencing a myspace photo crawl.

This visual element is commonly known as a “slider”, and there are literally hundreds of plugins available to help you implement one. Search the WordPress plugin index for a list:

I like Flexslider:

I usually just create a custom-post-type called Slides, and then pull up 3 or 4 of the most recent slides (featured image)

It is very…flexible…you can even do videos with it.

I’ve sort of done it with Meta Slider. But it looks like I’ll next need to format all the photos to fit into my short and wide space better.
