Banner Slideshow creation

#1

Hi Everyone,
I would like to create a banner slideshow with foundry. I used the slider and the sliding of the images works pretty fine. But I am missing the function that the picture gets automatically adjusted to e certain height and filling the while width. When I enter pictures of different sizes, they will only display in full size, i.e. they will show in their different sizes. Is there a way so that the pictures get automartically adjusted to a certain height and stretch to the whole width of the page?

Thanks a lot for your help

Hi, yes, you should use the motion stack for this. It is part of the PotionPack:

The Motion stack is a pretty good option, as @Fuellemann points out, but you could also crop and scale your images all to the same size before adding them to your slideshow. This is a better approach as you’ll also get the opportunity to compress your images with something like https://tinypng.com

This will also mean that you’re not wasting bandwidth on parts of an image that are getting seen if we were to just set a fixed height and parts of some of your images were getting hidden.

I think upfront work with images is the best approach. Use something like Photoshop, Pixelmator, or even OS X’s Preview app, to crop images and then compress them with a service like I mentioned above and you’ll be on the right track.
