Is there a gallery module or any module for making a slider? I really need a slider and a gallery to my site. Help, please!

Build yourself slider and a gallery - you can better customize it for your requirements.
I usually use the slider: bxSlider,
To the gallery: fancybox,

For example to gallery use:

class Gallery extends DataObject
    static $db = array (

    static $has_one = array (
    	'Photo' => 'Image',
        'HomePage' => 'HomePage' //Page where the gallery will be available
	function getCMSFields() {
     return new FieldSet(
           new UploadField('Photo')

And in Page from has_many (in my example HomePage)

class HomePage extends Page {

   static $many_many = array(
      'Gallerys' => 'Image'     
   public function getCMSFields() {
    	$fields = parent::getCMSFields();


		$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Gallery', new UploadField('Gallerys', 'Gallery'));
        return $fields;	
class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {	
	 public function init() {

		Requirements::javascript("mysite/javascript/option.bxSlider.js"); //option for bxslider

in template use

<% loop Gallerys %>
	<a rel="gallery" href="$URL">$SetWidth(80)</a>
<% end_loop %>

Sorry for my bad English

Thank you, Craftnet!
Unfortunately, I'm not a PHP programmer, but I'll try your method.
