I want to do something similar to views slideshow. The thing is my javascript is written already. I would like my javascript to be able to be integrated within the drupal framework from views. The JQuery just is a simple image slideshow like this one here. I just would prefer that I could show all or specific view field content instead of putting in the url in the javascript the long way. I want these images to come directly from a content type. Can you show me how?

You could create a small module that will be called through ajax:

function MYMODULE_node_menu() {
    return array(//$items
        'MYMODULE/%' => array(
            'page callback' => 'MYMODULE_display_view',
            'page arguments' => array(1),
            'access callback' => TRUE,
            'type' => MENU_CALLBACK,
function MYMODULE_display_view($view_name) {
    // display your view depending on $view_name
   $view = views_get_view($view_name);
   echo $view->render();

Get a views html by making an ajax call using jQuery:

$(document).ready(function() {
           sucess:function(data) {
              // data will contain the html for your view
