Suggestion for slideshow to embed

  1. I have pictures already hosted on an FTP site.. Can someone recommend a slideshow plugin/app/flash/java that I can use to embed a slideshow into a post using these pics? I don't want to use the gallery slideshow, and I don't want to create yet another picasa/flickr/image hosting account..

    The blog I need help with is pcspipeband.com.

  2. That's not possible on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. If you want to install plugins of any kind then you will have to hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install.

    There is no FTP access and no plugin capability on free hosted WordPress.com blogs.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase here that provides FTP access and the ability to install plugins and or any third party themes.

    See here for a full comparison WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org

    WordPress.com and WordPress.ORG have different logins. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.

  3. I understand your response, but certainly I can embed a slideshow like a youtube video..? I didn't mean I needed FTP access, I mean I want to create a slideshow based on pictures that are already online.. You can't do that with a gallery slideshow.. I assume there is a free "make a slideshow to embed to your blog" somewhere online, hopefully some other wordpress user has found a great one..?
