I am using the Simple Theme in shopify. My online store has lots of photos on some products and a few on others. I am wondering if anyone knows how to or even better if there's an app that takes the product images on each product page and turns the images into a slider type so that the customers on mobile can swipe through them or press an arrow for the next image. It would be great if this was similar on desktop too.

Hey there, @Inspiration!
Ryder here, from the Social Care Team at Shopify. Thanks for posting! I'd be happy to recommend a few alternative solutions for your slider needs.
Our app store offers a number of slideshow apps that you can check out. The Banner Slider by Secomapp App offers a 14 day free trial, and is free if you haven't yet made sales. Otherwise, the starting cost is $14.99/month USD depending on your Shopify plan. The Banner Slideshow App offers a free plan for up to 3 slides. You can upgrade to a paid plan if your store requires more than 3 slides. Finally, the Banner Slider - Image Slider App provides a free plan for a single slider and up to 3 slides. Similarly, if you need more slides you'll need to upgrade to a paid plan.
These apps will allow you to upload your product images and add a button or make the photos clickable to redirect your customers to visitors to specified pages. You can check out example stores of these apps provided on their pages, so you have an idea of how it would appear on your store visually. You can browse though additional related apps here.
If you have any questions regarding either app, you can also locate the app developer contact information on the right hand side of the pages. I hope one of these apps is able to help you with your store's slider needs! If there's anything I can clarify, please let me know.
