I want to have the same height for both landscape and portrait pictures because I want the slidehow to not flick between different heights when it shows a mixture of portrait and landscape images.
I have cropped the height of both a landscape and portrait to 900px in Photoshop and then uploaded them with the resizing option unchecked, but they are still displayed with different heights. The max width is set to 900px and the max height is set to 900px in my settings. The column width is set to 950px. I cant work out why BOTH landscape and portrait images are not being governed by the max height setting (900px).
I am forced to crop a portrait with a landscape box (so making the same dimensions as the landscape) but this leaves white borders on either side. If the mouse sits on this white area the slideshow will stop because it see it as part of the image but viewers cannot see this and will think the slideshow is broken if their mouse falls in this area. I also have to crop ALL my portraits that I upload.
How do you get the same height being displayed in both portrait and landscape images in a slideshow? Help!
