    im having difficult to manage slider issues with my images on homepage..i have rather large, high res image files and the portions that are being shown for each slider are cutting off/only showing some portions. other sliders ive used crunch and optimize each image, no matter how large.

    seeking assistance..if theres a px X px size i should reduce or optimize my images to no problem, just need to know what particulars those are..






    all image sizes are defined in functions.php. By default they’re:

    $avia_config['imgSize']['widget'] 			 	= array('width'=>36,  'height'=>36 );						// small preview pics eg sidebar news
    $avia_config['imgSize']['post-format-image'] = array('width'=>630, 'height'=>999, 'crop'=>false); // big images for post format image and gallery posts
    $avia_config['imgSize']['fullsize'] = array('width'=>930, 'height'=>930, 'crop'=>false); // big images for lightbox and portfolio single entries
    $avia_config['imgSize']['featured'] = array('width'=>930, 'height'=>340); // images for fullsize pages and fullsize slider
    $avia_config['imgSize']['portfolio'] = array('width'=>450, 'height'=>335); // images for portfolio entries (2,3,4 column)

    //dynamic columns
    $avia_config['imgSize']['dynamic_1'] = array('width'=>446, 'height'=>151); // images for 2/4 (aka 1/2) dynamic portfolio columns when using 3 columns
    $avia_config['imgSize']['dynamic_2'] = array('width'=>609, 'height'=>210); // images for 2/3 dynamic portfolio columns
    $avia_config['imgSize']['dynamic_3'] = array('width'=>688, 'height'=>151); // images for 3/4 dynamic portfolio columns

    However you can adjust the height values without breaking something. Afterwards regenerate the thumbnails with:


    I am using the template builder in Propulsion and a dynamic 3 but the depth of the slider keeps changing on each image. Is there a way to force it to crop and keep that depth constant. I have regenerated all images but that makes no difference



    Yes – change:

    array('width'=>930, 'height'=>930, 'crop'=>false


    array('width'=>930, 'height'=>930, 'crop'=>true
