What is it? JS Juxtapose
What does it do? Creates an embeddable “before and after” photo slider using similar pieces of media
How does it work? Through the website, https://juxtapose.knightlab.com/, you can create a slide following the simple instructions.
Photos must already be published to a website, since you must paste in the URL.
First, paste in the URL where the first image resides. Add a date (useful to the reader) and a caption.
Add the “after” photo’s URL, type in the date and a caption.
Click on preview to make sure your slider works.
Then, click on publish.
That action will get you an embed code that you can use in your story.
- The photos cannot be re-cropped in this tool. You must use whatever tool to crop the image before it publishes.
- A common workaround for news websites is to publish a photo gallery with all the images before you create your sliders.
- Create rich captions to guide your readers through the process.
- Can you use this strictly for a makeover home design story? How about a standing history story or series?
What better example than Berlin 1945 and 2015?
