I just recently started adding my photos to the slider. Keep in mind I am not a web designer by any means.
I cannot figure how to edit a pic that I added to the slider so it won’t take off the persons head, or crop images so you cannot see them
I ended up having to make the picture a Bit format which looks horrible. But Jpeg pics get
cropped in the slider. Please check out my slider on the welcome page of casual420.com. It
is the last pic of the guy on the mountain with smoke coming out of his mouth. This is not a jpeg pic.
In the casual room it has completely cropped peoples faces.
And also, the slider is awesome in the sample Broadscope theme page..how do you make the slider that large?July 13, 2012 at 6:21 pm #82057
Make sure you’ve given the documentation a good read through, it will guide you through the details of all of the theme features and is really good for anyone new to themes.
In your theme options, you’ve selected a page to be the Frontpage. That page will control the frontpage layout. So if you want to have a big featured image area that is a full width (similar to the demo) you need to first set the Template to “Fullwidth Page” in the Page Attributes box on the right of the text editor.
Then, in the Slideshow Options box, set the dropdown to Display big in featured area.
This should get your images to no longer be constrained by height but they will shrink down to 978px width.
If you want to change the size of the images for page use (which is what the slider you currently have is) you need to change the height size in your functions.php file.
This line specifically:
$avia_config['imgSize']['page'] = array('width'=>726, 'height'=>250); // image for pages
For it to take effect on older posts/images, you’ll need to regenerate your thumbnails with: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

I will try this out. Where do I find the functions.php file?

Ok I found where to make the change, but what should I change the height size to? I am sorry, I just want my slider to look like the sample Broadscope….It is the size of the slider that I would like to enlarge.July 27, 2012 at 11:57 pm #82061July 28, 2012 at 12:42 am #82062
Well i tried all of the above and it did not work!
Check out the welcome page…casual420.com..
Not feeling very casual right at this moment!
What did I do wrong…..
Changing it to full width page and show bigger image only makes the photos take over the page…and it does not change the slider
to be the full width of the page, which is what I am trying to accomplish.

Suggested height is 450px and 978px for width. Before uploading the images you need to make sure that it actually meet the suggested image width and height. So you need to select which images are to be included on your full width slider. Much better if you can crop parts of the images that you think are not necessary before uploading them.
