Meteor Slides

Meteor Slides makes it simple to manage a slide show with WordPress by adding a custom post type for slides. The slides are managed as featured images through the media library; they will automatically be cropped to the dimensions specified on the settings page. Optionally, each slide can link to any Post, Page, or external URL of your choice. Meteor Slides is easy to use, but the options should offer enough flexibility to use the slide show in many different ways.
