I really dislike the slideshow function in Hubpages, the reason being is that it really messes up my numbers. If you have say 10 pictures in your hub and someone clicks on an image and views all 10 images in the slideshow then that counts as 11 page views in Google analytics! It makes it really difficult to work out how many pageviews I'm actually getting from each visit. It's also very distracting for the reader, completely unnecessary and you don't get paid for slideviews. Dear Hubpages please, please allow us to turn this off!

Thanks for the info, I suppose Hubpages know what they're doing but I do find that huge black block covering the entire article very ugly indeed. I found a way to exclude slideshow views from my analytics reports so I feel a bit better about it now.
