How To - Add A Slideshow to your site or Topic Last Updated on 2013-07-23 16:14:46 A slideshow differs from a Photo Gallery in that is can only use images with a url, it can be associated only at the site or topic level, it can have an internal caption and it can have a link attached to the image directly through the creation process. As the slides are web based, the image size comes from the site where they originated and the slideshow software attempts to fit any image into the slideshow, regardless of actual size or orientation. For this reason landscape images work better that an image with a portrait orientation. To fill the space for a slideshow image area, the ideal image should be about 735x330 pixels. The steps to create a Slideshow left 1. Click on the "Options" icon at the upper of the page and select "Manage Site" 2. Click on "Graphics and Tools" and then "Slide Shows 3. Click on the "Create New Slide Show"... More »
