Ideal image size for Customizr slider? (8 posts)

    Just wanted to get an official word on an ideal image size for the slider. My research on the internet has shown conflicting information of 1300x500, 1200x500 and 1170x500 px. I saw a thread from 8 months ago from one of the authors of the template that recommended 1170x500, just wondering if that's changed with some of the new updates. Can we get an official size? Also, it might be a good idea to recommend the ideal size right in the customize window. Thanks.

    Registered Size Definitions:
    
    Array
    (
    
        [tc-thumb] => Array
            (
                [width] => 270
                [height] => 250
                [crop] => 1
            )
    
        [slider-full] => Array
            (
                [width] => 99999
                [height] => 500
                [crop] => 1
            )
    
        [slider] => Array
            (
                [width] => 1170
                [height] => 500
                [crop] => 1
            )
    
    )

    Taken from Debug This on a fresh install of Customizr, under Media > Image sizes.

    Thank you! So does that mean if the slider is set to full width you can choose a width for the pics? Any recommendations?

    I personally go with 1200 x 500. On a 1920 x 1080 monitor they render 1905 x 794 and the loss of quality is hardly noticeable (they're a bit blurred too, and this helps). I wouldn't go past that since browsing is slowly moving towards smaller screens with bigger resolutions.

    Thanks acub. Just to be clear, you recommend 1200x500 for the full width slider? (full width slider checked off?) Would I stick with the 1170x500 without the box checked?

    The most important thing with a slider is to have equally sized images, if you want them to look good cross-browsers cross-platforms. I chose 1200 x 500 over 1170 x 500 because it's easier for clients running sites based on this theme to remember those sizes. If all my clients were tech-savvy i would have probably went for 1170 x 500.

    And I don't think larger images would add anything to the website besides unnecessary pageload time. I think 1170 x 500 is more than enough to make an impression. Just choose your images wisely. :)

    acub, I'm noticing when I put in a slider image of 1170x500 set to full width the bottom of the pic gets way cut off. Any way to avoid this or is it a necessary evil of the theme?

    @likegluelikecrew - for full width you should use 1200 x 500.
