Hello Friends, Today in this post, we’ll learn How To Create a Responsive Full-Screen Image Slider | Hero Slider. Recently I have shared a post, Neumorphism Toggle Switch Buttons using HTML5 | CSS3. but our today’s topic is Responsive Full-Screen Image Slider | Hero Slider.
Full-screen slider skin has got everything you need in order to create a powerful and engaging user experience. It is an impressive, modern-looking slider with lots of social features and setting options. It allows you to combine three types of media files; photos, audio, and video content, as well as, control each and every detail concerning the slider.
Do you want your Bootstrap 4 carousel to extend the full width of the browser window? Do your images look cut off or have unwanted padding on the left and right? In this tutorial, we will take a closer look at the Bootstrap 4 carousel and determine the best approach in making it full width and responsive.
If you use the carousel code snippet from the Bootstrap 4 documentation you will notice the carousel anchor links do not wrap the entire image. In most cases, you will probably want the opposite. So for this example, I am going to make this adjustment to the code.
Each image has the .img-fluid class which tells the browser to only scale the image down if it does not fit in the smaller width. But for wide windows, it doesn’t scale up. But since you want to go full width, your images will appear cut off on really large screens.
In order to fix this, you will need to add the CSS rule below to your stylesheet to force your carousel image to always be full width. I first tried height: auto; so the image height would stay in the right proportion. But that did not work because the parent element .carousel-item is set to display: flex. Changing the height to 100% fixed this.
There are many advanced features, which are common to almost all Cincopa widgets such as mobile support, reliable security system, editable CSS files, user download alternative, and various upload and embed options. The responsive full-screen slideshow provides professional CDN services including media hosting, video streaming, and automatic encoding.
In addition, viewers can enjoy friendly arrow and bullets navigation and a high-quality video player with an efficient control bar. Along with Cincopa’s standard features, a full-screen slider skin adorns itself with a few additional, highly attractive and useful elements.
It includes titles and descriptions for both the whole gallery and individual items; special effects and orientation for different actions, item’s caption and description, and other progressive customization options. You can set the slideshow to start automatically and even determine the time interval between items.
Image src set lets you specify different image resolutions based on window size and the pixel density of the screen. This solves the page load problem but would not be able to make the xs and xl image proportions look better. We want the mobile image to be square and the desktop image to be a rectangle so we need more “art direction” control on what image is used and when.
The picture tag is designed for this scenario, so we will use this instead. Keep in mind, you will need to use a picture fill script to support IE11 and below because these versions do not support the picture tag.
above is an example of the picture tag with different images specified. See how each image source has a media query similar to CSS media queries? Following mobile-first, the image tag loads the smallest image first and then swaps it out on larger sizes (smallest to biggest from the bottom up).
This will improve page load significantly on mobile because it loads an image at a pixel resolution suitable for its screen size. Plus it gives you way more control of how things look at different breakpoints.
