10 Best WordPress Image Slider Plugins for slideshows

Images are very attractive and without them the homepage is totally unattractive. The image sliders are a old tradition on blogs and also on any type of business websites for serious implementation of call for action. Sliders have come a long way and now they are fully responsive with simple configuration option and with lots of features to keep your visitors interested. The layerslider included in this topic is my favorite as life was flowing through those still images and with anime style slow motion movements. All free plugins here can do do basic transition effects like fade and slide horizontally. Premium plugins are totally in different dimension compared to free image plugins available to us from WordPress plugins.

Not only are premium plugins packed with tons of transitions and features you can think of, they are seo optimized(riddle me that) so search engines can even find the content in the slider. Fade, slide, rollover, slice anything you think is possible now with these best plugins in the market. I can include 100′s of plugins which are free but here i am choosing only the best, either its free or premium. Why choose the best ?
There is another reason to stick with popular plugins as there are many mentions and support for these plugins on many forums so you wont be left out. All plugins below are responsive as i have tested theme myself. Less talk more plugins.
