    Hi Jackueline,

    Please check out this page: http://www.metaslider.com/documentation/image-cropping/

    It’s worth reading it all, but the ‘solution’ is to add padding to the left and right of your portrait image. The link describes why this is needed.




    This worked. Thank you.


    I’m sorry to ask the stupid question. But, how do I add padding? I have a bit of trouble wrapping my brain around this concept.
    I know I need to resize the images before uploading. Do I resize to the same height for landscape/portrait and then add padding to the portrait images. I’m not sure where and how to add the padding. With a photo editor?

    I like the look of Metaslider and may want to switch over from WPPA+. Plus, I just want to learn.

    I’m using the WPPA+ (Photo Album Plus plugin) now, and I was able to get my landscape and portrait images to display correctly. I think because that plugin has maximum width/height settings for slideshows and a separate global setting for the plugin. See link below.

    I also may want to create my own, personal photo gallery/essay website and Metaslider looks classy 🙂



    Sorry, I now realized that I replied to an already resolved thread.

    I figured out one way to do what I asked.
    Using Paint.net, I resized the portrait image to the same height as the landscape images and then adding padding using the canvas size option. You can adjust the padding color, too.

    I put a few images in a test metaslider and it seems to do what I want and solve the “portrait/landscape in the same slideshow” issue.

    I’m not sure if I did it the easiest, most effective way, but it seems to work.
