FAQs

Can I reorder the slides?
No, but you can edit them. They are ordered by date created.

How come my image was cropped?
An image is automatically cropped to fit the box if its original size is larger than the News Slider.

How can the image show up exactly as I want it — not cropped?
If you want the image to be exact, upload an image with these dimensions: 572 pixels wide by 450 pixels high. Then select Full Size as the Rendition. Don’t have PhotoShop? You can use Pixlr, a free online image editor.
