Depicter is definitely revolutionary and a game changer. How can a free plugin be packed with amazing features like this? I am so shocked. Well done guys. I can't wait for the pro version to come out so we can have access to even more amazing functionalities. Thanks for the awesome plugin

I spent DAYS looking for a slider which was simple but powerful, but after testing the "top 11" (as many online articles suggested) I was desperate. None of them matched my needs and they were definitely not easy to use. Then, I came across Depicter and...damn, that was exactly what I needed. And it's free! I also had an issue integrating it with WPBakery so I contacted the support, and to my surprise they helped me right away and within half an hour my issue was solved. What can I say? I have been online for over 20 years and this kind of customer support is more than rare. Please stop researching for sliders and stick with Depicter, trust me.

Seriously the best slider plug-in I saw on any CMS tbh. Not only is the UI super intuitive and easy to use, you can also use depicter for virtually anything. I had a problem and support team handled it in mere 4hrs with great precision. I can only recommend!

Not that I want to encourage you to making this paid premium project, but I find it hard to believe that it's FREE! It's in the same league as Rev Slider! Keep up the good work guys
