For best results, all images in a carousel must have exactly the same pixel dimensions, both height and width, before being uploaded to the CMS.
Note: Image file names that contain punctuation will not show up properly on the website!
Be certain the file name does not contain commas, apostrophes, etc. before uploading the image.
Most carousels are less than full-width, and are either half the width of the page, or quarter width. The carousel will display one image at a time, no matter its width. Your first decision is how wide you want the carousel to be on the web page.
Full-width carousels are best used for top-of-page treatments. Be aware that they will push the text underneath farther down the page, probably forcing visitors to scroll to read the actual information on the page. Use full-width carousels with care.
Important: Before uploading images for any one carousel, be certain that they all have exactly the same pixel dimensions, both height and width. Any variation in dimensions between photos will cause some
to have an unexpected appearance.
Make sure that all of the images are prepared before beginning to create the carousel. To resize images, use photo editing software such as Photoshop.
Your photos can either be uploaded to the CMS library individually, or can be added as you create the carousel.
Note: Images placed in a carousel can be chosen from any folder within the entire CMS (taking care about the dimensions, as noted above). Images that are uploaded as the carousel is created will be stored within the same folder as the
carousel. Images cannot be moved from folder to folder.
