Responsive Slideshow Software for Wordpress

I’m about to rebuild my photography website, but I’m having trouble deciding which slideshow program to use. In the past I’ve used Slideshow Pro for Lightroom, which was fine, but I now require a responsive slideshow that will scale automatically to fit the screen the site is being viewed on. I’ve heard that Slideshow Pro Director is responsive, but I’ve also heard that they aren’t developing it anymore and they seem to be ignoring customers on their forum, which isn’t a good sign.

I’ll be using Wordpress with a responsive HTML5 CSS3 ready theme.

I’m interested to see what other people are using with their responsive Wordpress themes and whether anyone is still using Photoshelter? If you are using Photoshelter, is it worth the money?

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Services like Livebooks and Photoshelter certainly have their perks and many photographers prefer these SaaS providers as they are just easy to manage and you have support for pretty much everything.

I personally use Wordpress and have been using Photocrati since a couple of years now, they did promise to upgrade their version with more designs in 2011 and offer hosted services but I havent seen any huge updates so far.

There are quiet a few Photocrati alternatives like ProPhoto Blog and Graph Paper Press both which do decent jobs. If you are looking for cheaper hosting services I can recommend, APhotoFolio, Pixpa, Foliolink, Pixpa etc.

Hope that helps,

best,

I noticed a mention on the Adobe blogs for this set of Lightroom plugins, and wonder too if they might be useful. The sales pages leave alot to be desired in how easily they interact with Lightroom, your web server and/or Wordpress, but less so in defining how much they cost in $$.
