A carousel refers to a rotating or sliding display of various multimedia types within a confined space on a webpage. It is a popular component used to showcase multiple types of visual content in an interactive and engaging manner.
The carousel typically consists of a series of multimedia panels or slides that are displayed one at a time. The slides can be set to automatically transition or use of navigation controls, such as arrows or indicators, allow users to manually scroll through the content.
Carousels are often placed prominently on the homepage or key landing pages of a website. They are commonly used in portfolios, product showcases, testimonials, news highlights, or any situation where there is a need to highlight multiple items or messages within limited screen real estate.
