Look at the demo page. See how pretty? I've used a number of extensions that had great looking demos but they didn't look that good in real life. This one does. It is easy to configure, doesn't take a long time to figure out at all. Versatile. Works with featured articles, categories, etc. Works the way YOU are already working. You can pick the images either from inside the articles or from intro or full article image. Works with text, image or a combination. Lots of hover effects built in with some very nice layouts. You can resize the images so that you only have 1/slide section -- like a traditional slider -- or you can shrink them to have multiples. You can set how the image resizes -- EASILY. No fancy tinkering behind the scenes, everything available in the admin area. I really like this module and intend to use it on more sites. Also -- I asked the developer a question and he responded faster than I have EVER seen a developer respond before. I'm in shock. Really nice work.
