Sliders are probably one of the most important elements in web design so it's crucial to make them engaging and interactive. Almost every blog needs a good slider that crowns the site and welcomes the users. Parallax is a great technique, which uses the same principle as animation, where the background images pass by the camera slower than the foreground images. This creates the illusion of depth in a 2D scene, adding to the immersion.
