[resolved] Slider images cutting off bottom (5 posts)

    I am trying to mock up a website on a home server with this theme and I am having trouble with the slider. I have created a couple .png images in GIMP that are 1170 x 500px and when I have the browser full screen the bottom of the image is cut off in the slider, but when I bring it down to a smaller say 1/4 screen width the slider shows the full images. Kinda strange to me. I am new to wordpress and to website design but love this theme and would like to use it. I did create a child theme that I am using of the customizr theme but I have not put anything in the style.css file yet so it is all factory stock.

    thanks for any help.

    In Customizit!>Front Page there is a Slider Options section and a Full Width slider checkbox.

    If you have checked that box, your image will stretch to full width but the ideal dimension for that is 1200x500. Otherwise, 1170x500 is the correct sizing.

    Yeah, if I have the box checked it cuts off the bottom of it and then if it is unchecked then it looks fine. I will try and image that is 1200 px long then and see what happens. Thanks for the input.

    It depends on the width of the screen. It's designed to preserve the aspect ratio of the image while not getting too big vertically — most importantly not stretching or squishing the image. It's a difficult set of criteria to satisfy and this is a happy-compromise.

    Thanks for the reply. I certainly understand trying to meet the needs of all browsers and screen sizes. I was messing around with different image sizes and for my mock-up I found that if I used a image size of 1800px x 500px that the image stayed intact and fully visible no matter what size I changed my screen to. But I am also using a HD TV for my monitor and so a higher resolution monitor may bee different but it is working for me for now. I just like the look of the full width slider but would like to use the images themselves for information and not text over them.

    again thanks so much for the help and the quick responses, I really appreciate it all.
