ClearPeople's Director walks you through SharePoint 2010 Picture Library Slideshow
There are some new out-of-the-box web parts for SharePoint 2010 that can make your intranet/portal and/or website much more interesting. I have provided some information below on the Picture Library Slideshow web part, which is a favourite amongst our marketing team and clients. Over the coming weeks, I will add more of these - so please feel free to let me know if there are any particular ones you want me to focus on. 
Availability: This web part is available for SharePoint Foundation, Standard and Enterprise.
