How to make photo slideshow in webeasy 8 site?

I want to put a slide show into a webeasy 8 made site.
I know about using 3. party services like picassa, but I want the slide show
to be in the site on my website hoster.
I have limited knowledge about this subject, and don't know how to read code.
Still I can manage to make a site and upload it to my web server.
Please answer step by step.

I found this free slide show code. [...] to-gallery
I asked a forum about using this code and got this answer:
I can show you the places in WebEasy to insert custom coding into the <body> as well as the <head>, however you will have to insert all of the coding, do all of the manual uploading of JS files and things of that nature.
To insert custom coding into the <head> of the source code, you must do so through the File Inspector.
Click on View >> Inspector to open the File Inspector.
There, you will see three tabs, Properties, Style, and Layers. To the right of those three tabs is a drop down menu. Click on that drop down menu and select Current Page.
Under the Properties tab, locate the attribute HEAD ELEMENTS. Anything that you place in the value for that attribute will be generated in the <head> of the source code.
It appears that photo gallery requires JS files to be referenced in the head, so that code is what you will need to place in the head. However, the .JS files will not be uploaded automatically, as it is not apart of WebEasy. You will have to manually upload the .JS files to the hosting server.
To insert custom coding into the <body> of the source code, use the Insert >> Component >> HTML Code Fragment feature.

So apparently it can be done. But I don't know how.
Lets say I would make a slide show with the pictures from windows xp picture samples,
being 'sunset' and 'winter'.
Then what do I do and where do I place the pictures and files on my web server?

Welcome to the Ranch

I don’t know myself, but I don’t think this is a “beginning Java™” question. Not sure where it would sit best, but let’s try General Computing.
I agree. Here's the link:
