Helpful Tips

  1. Why does my image looks so big on the back end?
    You forgot to select the correct Rendition. This will cause your page to load slowly. Select Carousel Image (269 x 206) as the Rendition when uploading image.
  2. How to get an image that isn’t cropped?
    Create an image that is 269 pixels wide by 206 pixels high. When uploading, under Image Rendition, select Full Size Image. If you don’t have an image editor to resize your image, use Pixlr.
