J1 Carousel is based on OWL Carousel V1 in the latest version. The carousel is a powerful jQuery plugin for creating fully responsive and touch-enabled carousel slideshows.
A slider or carousel is typically used for displaying images. Still, the implementation for the J1 Template supports a lot more sources to be displayed as a slide show — simple text for example.
Important statements or topics can be placed on top of an article or a paragraph to give them better visibility. In one line, you can present many facts to know animated for the reader’s attention within a single line.
A more emphasized type of text-based carousel is a parallax text slider. If you want to focus the meaning, this kind of a slide show may be interesting. Image-based slide shows may draw off the reader’s attention from the text, therefore a pure text-based presentation maybe the better choice.
Parallax text shows can be placed as banners on a page. For text shows, different animations are available. Internally, J1 Template uses some of the great CSS styles offered by animate.css.
Carousels are mostly used for pictures data to animate the images as a series. Find with the following some examples of how to use a carousel for your image data.
A simple image show is useful, for example, as an animated (or not animated) banner presenting exciting things about your site or the products offered.
Carousels are used for an exceptionally compact form of image galleries. This example shows some pictures having individual caption text and supports a lightbox to enlarge images full size.
The J1 module lightbox is a simple Lightbox but offers a bunch of impressive features for displaying images. For example, the lightbox can display all images as a group. If one picture is opened in the lightbox, others are browsed by easy-to-use control buttons.

Masterslider is a jQuery plugin fully integrated into the J1 Template. Jekyll One uses the free version of Masterslider well-known as MS Lite. The lite version does not support all features of the full product. The functionality of filters and layouts are limited and no overlay techniques are supported by the MS Lite version.
Sliders and Carousels are focussing quite the same thing: presenting images dynamically. The features of Sliders go far beyond what simple carousels can do: presenting image-based data as slide shows.
Well-known Office Products to create presentations are Powerpoint from Microsoft or Google Docs. Modern sliders like Master Slider provide similar features to present animated presentations based on digital image data combined with text elements, buttons, or overlay techniques for images or other digital data sources.
In short: Carousels are used to present images, and sliders are used to create complex image-based presentations.
For more details of the implementation of Master Slider for J1 Template, find more helpful information at the page Master Slider module.
The following slider uses the CSS filter feature of Master Slider. Filters can be used, for example, to transform the style of the images presented by a slider. In this example, the slider images are transformed from style color to sepia.
Lightbox support is only available for the MS Lite version of J1 Template. The original Product versions MS Lite and MS Pro does not support lightboxes on sliders out-of-the-box.
Click on the Lightbox symbol in the slides to see the colored images configured for the slider.
One of the major features of sliders is to present additional animated elements, like text data, connected to the images presented by an slideshow. MS Slider additionally provides functions to combine images and text by so-called MSInfo blocks out-of-the-box.
To give the users better control over a slideshow, sliders provide complex UI elements to place dor example mini-images or short text elements side-by-side left or right, or at the bottom of a slideshow. Find two examples below how to control such a carousel element.
The following slider presents a slideshow that combines an MSInfo element at the bottom and the MS Layout
partialview. A slideshow typically presents a larger number of slides. The layout
partialview accompanies the active slide by their neighbors on the left and the right.

JustifiedGallery is a great jQuery Plugin to create responsive, infinite, and high-quality justified image galleries. J1 Template combines the Gallery with the lightboxes supported to enlarge the images of a gallery. See the gallery in action; and for sure, all that you see is even responsive. Change the size of your current browser window, by width or height to see what will happen!
Pictures you’ve made are typically not even in size. Images may have the same size (resolution), but some are orientated landscapes, or others may be portraits. For that reason, a more powerful gallery is needed to create so-called justified views. J1 Gallery is based on Justified Gallery to create so-called masonry grid layouts.
It works by placing elements in an optimal position based on available horizontal and vertical space. Sort of like mason fitting stones in a wall. For sure, you’ll have seen it in action all over the Internet.
I hope, you’ve enjoyed exploring the possibilities J1 offers for managing and displaying digital image content. But much, much more can the J1 do for your web.
The J1 Template support playing audio and video on web pages by using the HTML5 audio and video support, the new standard of HTML. HTML5 implements a pure HTML way to show play audio or playing video on the web. Modern browsers support the audio tag
<audio> and the video tag
<video> for the HTML5 standard.
The previous proprietary de facto standard software like a Flash Player, Quicktime, or Silverlight is no longer needed as the Theme JekyllOne provides HTML5 video for local content and from online sources on the Internet.
