The simple plugin that allows you to display image slides with title, description and read more linked to posts from the selected category. The slide title and description appear with slide-in animation effect.

The user may select the category or display items of all categories.
The number of slides is unlimited and you may specify how many slides you want to be visible in a column.

Image sizes available to select from the list are determined by Media Settings of Wordpress. This way the plugin does not have to scale images by itself which is the more site optimization friendly solution. See the example of using this plugin on PE Internet theme.

It's WCAG 2.0 / Section 508 compliant WordPress plugin for displaying recent posts.
