Support » Plugin: MaxSlider » Resizing images

  • Resolved QuestionBoy


    I just downloaded your plugin and it appears very promising, but I am having trouble setting up my images properly and can’t seem to locate any documentation.

    I’m using the default setting, for now, so image size of 750×450. So I resized all my images to have a max height and width of 750×450. Yet when I upload them and insert them into the image deck, when I view the website they still remain cut off, enlarged, … I just can’t seem to get the image to display properly.

    It is possible to get some advice, how-tos.

    How does one determine the sizes of the images required so they display properly based on the selected Image Size setting?

    Thank you,

    Okay, I finally found: but it hasn’t helped understand what size images I need for a given image size property so they display properly undistorted, cutoff, blurry…

    For instance, I’m confused as to why if I use the default 750×450 when I inspect the webpage it is actually 1170×500

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi there,
    a) what theme do you use?
    b) is the slider added as a shortcode inside a post’s/page’s content, or is it someplace else (e.g. the theme allows you to chose a Slider to display in the background).
    c) is the website publicly accessible so that we can have a look?

    Themes are able to override MaxSlider templates and force their own image size for optimal results, so your choice of size may be ignored.
    Also, if the content area is wider than the slider’s width, it might get resized. That’s what usually responsive themes do.
