Before & After slider is a cool effect, used to provide a real-time sense of comparison of two images.

If you're building a website for fitness trainer (such as what we're doing for RYSTRENGTH), makeup artist, construction, car repair, etc..

Here's what we will be creating.

How to Create Before & After Slider in Oxygen

Prepare Your Images

Make sure both of your photos are the same size, and proportional. So the effect is more appealing.
To get you started, I've uploaded the exact images I used in the demo, so grab them from here before - after

Add The Before-After JavaScript

Add a code block, in the HTML section add this code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdn.jotfor.ms/before-after/before-after.min.js"> </script>

Then move to the JavaScript section, and add this jQuery code:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
jQuery('.ba-slider').beforeAfter();
});

Add CSS

Within the same code block, head over to the CSS section, and here's the code:

.ba-slider {
position: relative;
overflow: hidden;
}
.ba-slider img {
width: 100%;
display:block;
max-width:none;
}
.ba-slider .resize {
position: absolute;
top:0;
left: 0;
height: 100%;
width: 50%;
overflow: hidden;
}
.ba-slider .handle {
position:absolute;
left:50%;
top:0;
bottom:0;
width:4px;
margin-left:-2px;
background: #ffffff;
cursor: ew-resize;
}
.ba-slider .handle:after {
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
width: 50px;
height: 50px;
margin: -32px 0 0 -24px;
content: '\2194';
color: black;
font-size: 28px;
text-align: center;
background: #ffffff;
border-radius: 50%;
}

Create The First Div

Add a Div, give it class ba-slider
And rename it baslider div
Add your first image (the before image) inside baslider div.

Create the Second Div

The second div, should be nested under the first one.
Assign the class to it resize.
Rename it as resize div.
Add your second image (the after image) inside resize div.

refer to image above for the structure.

Create the Slider Handler

Last step is to add a third div, assign class handle
This goes under the main div (baslider div)


And now you have a before & after slider in Oxygen, without plugins or bloat.

P.S Your slider mgiht look like this image below, that's ok. On the front end it renders perfectly fine.
