Page Elements for a Working Slideshow Feature

Web scripting libraries such as jQuery and MooTools have allowed for rapid-pace web development. More plugins are being released every day which build off already popular frameworks. And web developers love the internal plug-and-play functionality for many of these scripts. But on even the same level of functionality is the design interface.

Slideshows are more prevalent these days, but not always in a good way. It takes some finesse and gentle attention to details in building a unique custom layout. I have collected a nice gallery of slideshow elements to hopefully give you a bit of inspiration. Consider which pieces may work well in your own slideshow, and what your users will be expecting with this type of interface.
