A must Have!

I have been waiting for you to release such an extension and finally you have. It's full of rich features that are easy to use and different transitional effects are brilliant. The ability to show either thumbnails or html within the slider is a nice touch. And now I can finally link my slider to my CMS. Thanks for the great little extension.

I have already used Nivo Slider without this extension and did okay. But boy, what a difference the extension makes. It was well worth the price. I can instantly change the slider settings with drop down menus. It is going to save me a lot of time and allow me to be more creative with my slideshows.

Sometimes I regret buying extensions but not this one. Everything I have gotten from dmx zone has been good.

There are quite some features that make the Nivo Slider worth its offer. But what I think makes it a very handy tool is its ease of integrating images dynamically stored in a database system. So you can just design an interface for your designers to upload and edit images they want as part of a set of slides and jiffy it is implemented!

Just the ticket

I was looking for a 'Flash' style image transition plugin for DW and found this. It's clean and simple to use, and the effects are superb. Well done chaps.
