A slideshow is a series of pictures or pages of information. A slide in a slideshow is essentially a single view of information that is able to display text, images, or some combination thereof.
A slide can also feature various transitions, which are added effects to enhance the slide and provide different viewing styles. Transitions can include elements fading in or out of view, items sliding in to view from the left, right, top or bottom of the slide, and others. Slide-based content is a popular choice for businesses due to the attention they can grab from viewers when done correctly.
