First thing you need to do is install and activate the TwentyTwenty plugin. The plugin works out of the box and there are no settings for you to configure.

[twentytwenty]<img src="http://www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/before-photo.jpg" alt="Before photo" width="604" height="402" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-2367" /> <img src="http://www.example.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/after-photo.jpg" alt="After Photo" width="604" height="402" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-2366" />[/twentytwenty]
Now you can save your changes and preview the post. You will be able to see both your images layered on top of each other with a slider in the center allowing users to slide and see before and after photos.
The first image becomes the before image on the left, and the second one becomes the after image on the right.
As the users slide the handle towards each image the other image will become visible. Users can take the slider all the way to the right or the left to see the full before and after image. As the users slide the before and after labels will automatically disappear.
