Wow, thanks so much for all the comments and ideas. I was busy playing with RCS and hadn't checked the forums. Let me read through and see what's all here.

Thanks for the recommendation and examples!! I just downloaded orbit and am ready to try it out. I just made a 5 slide picture show with RCS and was trying to figure out how to embed it when I saw your post. Given Orbit is a component of SDv3, I suspect it will be easier to integrate. Can't wait to give it a try.

Wayan - thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Using orbit-plain, I was able to add a slideshow. Orbit is quite a bit easier. I think it took me less than an hour to download, add pictures and upload the revised website.

I'll check out your other examples and get even fancier.

Hi Diana,

I think it would look good if you made the images a bit smaller. I have a 22 inch monitor, and in order to see the images properly, I have to keep scrolling up and down. It would also help if you could position the slideshow a bit closer to the top of the page. Maybe some of the contents above it could be put side by side instead of below each other?

Hi again Diana

well done, however, your images are massive at the larger monitor sizes, any visitors will have to scroll down because only half of the images are showing without having to scroll. if you are going to go for full-screen sliders, then you really need to make the images background images with the header overlaid

I have a short video of the slider how it looks at larger viewport sizes

I saw that. I'm playing around with the settings, trying to figure out the best way to fix it. If I limit width to a set number of px, it places the orbit to the left. If I limit the height to a set number of px, it cuts off the picture. Or is there a better way?

I changed the max width on the orbit container and that seems to have fixed it. If you see anything else that could make the site even better, please don't hesitate to say. Thank you again!!

first thing os make your images smaller (max width around 1900 px or a bit less) KEEP THE PROPORTIONS THE SAME
try to make all images same size if possible if not make sure that they all have same proportions

Some cropping/cutting off is inevitable, you will have to choose best
