I'm considering purchasing RCS. Looking to have two or three pictures showing on the page with the ability to scroll left or right to see additional pictures (like a carousel). I downloaded a trial version to see if I could do that. It doesn't appear to be an option, but maybe I'm not seeing it.

Well at the risk of getting shot down here, RCS is out of date & in need of some real TLC from Coffee Cup, It's now cumbersome and although responsive it has sort of fallen by the wayside.
Which is the software you are using for your project and which framework
However, having said all that, it is capable of doing that sort of effect you are looking for, it's a long time since I used RSC, but if I remember right you change the "nav buttons to images. I will need to install RCS so I can refresh my memory
If you can hang on a little while;e I will get back to you soon, in the meanwhile;e of someone else knows how to or has another suggestion,

I just took a quick peek at your test site, are you wanting the page that contains the 3 images as the slider (carousel) ?

If so then the foundation framework on RSD can have a component "Orbit" which would do the trick, I believe there is a component "Carousel" that is available in the Bootsrap framework. for Site Designer3 I have made a couple of "Orbit" examples available for download which you could use to get something like what you want

If Bootstrap is wanted, I have a Carousel example in my Sharing folder, see signature. But Diana's website seems to be Foundation, so Orbit will be the one she needs.

It's not had much styling,
The "next/prev" buttons can be changes styled etc
The nav circles can be styled differently
The slides can be animated differently, autoplay can be disabled, the animation timing can be changed,
the slides animations can be changed

there are many things that can be done

Please don't think I am trying to show you how your design/layout should be, I am just showing what can be achieved how versatile/flexible, & adaptable "Orbit" can be.The only restriction is your imagination, D, & it;s a lot easier than RCS
