[resolved] Images not sizing properly (10 posts)

    I'm finding that the images I insert are displaying as smaller. For example: I define my slider ,as 600x300. if I insert an image of 600 x 300, it will display in the slider as something between 40%-50% of that (not sure of the correct percentage). To get around this, I have to increase the image size (somewhere around 160%) at which point it starts to display better in the slider.
    Any suggestions?

    I agree, after inserting images, there is a dark grey right hand side and the lighter grey area on the bottom of the image area visable.

    Any solutions yet?

    By default, the slider has a height of 235px and the width expands to match the containing element. If you have a specific image size, it is best to define an exact width and height in the shortcode, like so:

    [promoslider width="600px" height="300px"]

    Just figured it out...had the default image size set to 'medium' #braindead :)
    Thanks for your help!

    I did that and still did not work. At the end I gave up and now using NextGen Gallery. I would have love to use promotion slider.

    Try checking your Slider options and make sure the default setting is set to 'full size"

    I have that exact same problem.
    I can size my .jpg files any size I want...but the promo slider seems to keep a little distance from the picture on one side.

    I have now set my sizer: [promoslider width="580px" height="402px"]
    but it leaves exactly the same space on the side as when it was 600x 300
    The hight seems to be adjusting normally..but the sides left-right won't.

    What can I try to fix this.

    It's already set to 'full size' ..


    thanks ;-)

    The problem you describe is most likely unrelated to your image size and is being caused by CSS in your theme. A link to the page where this is happening would allow me to see what is going on and point you in the right direction.

    I had the same problem, where no matter what I set the image width to or what width of image I uploaded, the images would always appear slightly narrower than the actual image size.

    Per Micah's suggestion, I did burrow through my theme CSS and found one instance of certain types of images having a max-width of 98%. If your images are always getting slightly shrunk regardless of original width, try looking for a percentage width in your theme CSS.
