I try to post a slider on my main page, but it only shows about a quarter of the picture. The pictures are the right size and everything, so I don't know what's wrong. It just keeps doing this. —This unsigned comment is by VetGeek (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Never mind. I found it. Your pictures are evidently too large for the slider. For some reason, sliders do not resize images, and to display what you want, you may have to shrink your images to a width of 660px with some sort of image editor (Microsoft Paint, GIMP, Paint.NET, Photoshop, etc.).

Images have to be a specific size (660px wide by 360px tall) to work with the Slider. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11 Jan 2012 6:12 PM Pacific
Oh......then I'm screwed. I don't have any of that stuff. Oh well. —This unsigned comment is by VetGeek (talkcontribs) 07:17, January 13, 2012. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
Do a google search for online image editors. They might work for you. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 13 Jan 2012 5:28 PM Pacific
You can try irfanview, it's an image viewer that includes resize&crop&transcode functionality. ForestMonthZero 13:37, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, actually Irfanview works pretty well (and is free), but beware resizing and saving images with transparency as it may not always work right. You can also use Preview (free and comes with Mac OS X) on the Mac. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 17 Jan 2012 3:24 PM Pacific
