Code that’s cool

I haven’t seen this slider code before, which is surprising because it’s quite a neat feature for a blog. Most images on the web are either static or gifs, and aside from some well executed cinemagraphs we’ve been seeing recently, the latter usually looks a bit cheap and nasty. 

I think they could improve the slider by hiding the blue button, or maybe making it reveal on hover. 

I think this model morphosis works because it’s two strong photographs working together. A few examples of use:

before and afters, environment stuff, anti smoking psa, faces of meth, tech improvements, historical photos then and now etc etc
