    I would like to post images on my “Photos” page and I am fine with using the slider but I would like the photos to display at no larger than 800×600 as I have optimized them as such. I changed the two pieces of code that Ismael mentioned here http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/image-sizes-in-blog and it looks as if there is something stopping the images from displaying in full and the slider is off to the bottom. (Something codewise is off)

    I would just like a simple way to display 10 images but I do not want them to stretch the full length of the page width. As I have some that are portrait and some landscape. Please help.

    I also would like these to be centered within the page.

    Here is a link to the current page. (Someone had troubles opening the page though earlier.)

    Hi,

    If all your images are either 600×400 or 400×600 then In Settings > Media , please make both the medium sized image and the large size image max constraints = 600 width and 600 height.

    You currently are setting the width of images to be 400px in your custom.css file

    #top .slideshow li img {
    width: 400px;
    }

    please change it to :

    #top .slideshow li img {
    max-width: 600px;
    max-height: 600px;
    }

    You could also web optimize the images down to 80-100k with no loss in quality to speed up the page if you so chose.

    Please let us know how it worked out,

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Ok so my client wants to display images horizontally in a format where people could download the images or right click and save them if needed. Any thoughts on that?

    I picture a grid of images 3 columns wide with thumbnails and then when you click they would actually open full size in a different tab or window. Could you help with that?

    Sorry, I am new to wordpress and this is my test run on site building. (Im a graphic designer with little web experience :(

    Hi,

    What you suggest sounds like an idea. Dont be shy and play around with the theme. Install a maintenance plugin (so noone else can see site), and a reset plugin, so if you make a mistake you can wipe database and start from scratch. Sentence is a solid theme so you can do a lot with it in many different ways, but until you get comfortable with wordpress, you will be stuck.

    Learn to use Firebug, the free Firefox or Chrome add-on, because Firebug to a WordPress developer is the same as a camera or film is to a photographer, here is a short video to give you an idea http://vimeo.com/20917974

    I am thinking of making a video tutorial for Sentence tomorrow, perhaps I can do one first on your subject.

    Thanks,

    Nick
