I having been building with WordPress for over 11 years now and finding an awesome slider can be a tricky task! I have used just bout every slider you can use including all the free sliders as well the some paid sliders. If you are searching for great slider for images as well as text I would highly recommend Crelly slider.
Many sliders have limited functionality or just aren't easy to use. Some slider require that you upload images into its own folder and styling can be daunting at best. With Crelly many of the common issues you find with other sliders are solved.
