Implementing SuperSized in Blogger

Supersized jQuery PluginSupersized is a jQuery plugin that automatically resizes (background) images to the size of the browser while maintaining image dimension ratio and runs them as a slideshow in simple words its a Full Screen Slider.

There is no extra whitespace, no scrollbars – the entire browser window is always filled. It is lightweight and is compatible with Firefox, Safari, Opera, IE7, and IE6. It also allows integration with Flickr API.
