Another departure from pure CSS demos to the use of a little jQuery routine.

This slideshow works in all browsers including IE7+ and operating systems, tablets and mobiles and is fully responsive. IE7 does not have the rotate animation.

If you are resizing this page then you may need to reload after resizing to see that it is responsive, this is due to the 'responsive' Google ads.

If you are viewing this on a PC then, using the mouse, click on the image an swipe left or right to remove that image from the sideshow stack. The image will move from the top of the stack to the bottom which allows you to flip through all the images and back to the start image.

If you are viewing on tablets or mobiles then swipe the top image left or right to show the next image in the stack. Again the top image will move to the bottom of the stack so that you can cycle through the images as many times as you like.

I have added a caption for each image which can be positioned and styled using CSS.

The grab cursor is visible in all browsers except Opera.

I think that CSS should have a :scroll selector that will work in the same way as :hover. IE10 and IE11 have their own -ms-scroll which can be used to monitor mouse and touch actions using just CSS, so I think that this should be taken up by other browsers and do away with the need for javascript/jQuery.
