I have 2 suggestions: Have presets in a dropdown box like "low", "medium", "high", & "manual". When the user chooses one of these setting, the user can see the slider moving around, but he cant actually slide it (because it's grayed-out). However, once the user selects "manual", the slider becomes available to slide around. Have a % label next to ...

I've been in the same position a couple of times. I really like to avoid using colors (like Chetan's answer). Colors can give issues with people that are colorblind and visibility depending on the color of the background. I provide the slider with small vertical marks (7-9 or so over the length of the slider bar) to indicate this has more steps than ...

The problem is that there are two different cases. Some users, like myself, tend to prefer choosing from a small set of presets while others prefer the slider. Perhaps you should provide two different modes to address these two cases. You keep the slider mode for those people who want it, and you add a discrete mode for those who would prefer it. I imagine ...

Make your slider stick (ignore further touch input) at about 70% of the range, that will make the user think they've reached 100% of the slider for a few seconds where they're looking at their image preview. If they still want to set it to 100%, they will have to release and "grab" (touch and hold) that slider again to set it to their desired position. ...

A pattern I have used previously combines a spinbox and a slider. The slider has a reduced range that is both easily usable and useful and which also makes it easier to use because it produces fewer values. The spinbox part however, has a wider range in the event that this is what the user really wants to do. The arrow buttons scan through the full set of ...

No visual indicator should be needed, because this is a ubiquitous pattern. Nearly any image editing software has controls like this, and typically the results look bad at the extremes. This really isn't a problem as long as the user can instantly see the effect of moving the slider and correct it if they go too far. Given that you indicated that you have ...

Approach 1:- Extreme low and high values can be discouraged by color doing the slider using gradient coloring, as shown below:- Green color in the center to indicate permissible and safe value, ends are colored red to indicate permissible but unsafe values. colors should be linearly transitioned from green to red, since there is no clear demarcation ...

Use scrolling. People tend to overlook a carousel as they may assume its content is only what is displayed in the first instance. Maybe in this scenario people are searching for a portfolio and as such would know it is a carousel, but as an example we had a carousel on one of our websites the first images had a few clicks a CTR of around 0.05%... the images ...

Portfolio sites are somewhat unique situations in that you likely have a fairly defined and committed audience. They are specifically looking at your work to possibly hire you. This gives you a little bit of freedom that you may not otherwise have with broader audience. Carousels in the 'traditional' sense that had 3D rotating gimicky animations or ...
