    Default Images in Carousel not dislayed correctly

    When adding images to the carousel, they don't always display correctly. I can't see any way to edit the images that I have placed in the carousel even as simple as rotating the image. Some images are only partially displayed. I can only seem to add or delete an image.

    Are all of the images the same size when you start? or are they all different sizes?

    Try to make the images as close to the same size as possible in a graphic editing software before you use them.

    Use all vertical ones or all horizontal one if possible

    Thanks for your help.They are not the same size. What is a simple/free editor to adjust the size. Is there a way to access the image inspector to edit an image from within the program?

    photoshop is the industry standard but it is neither free (nor cheap!) and certainly not simple. If you plan on growing in the business then you could look at Corel's PaintShop - almost as powerful as photoshop but quite a lot less to buy. Irfanview is pretty good and free. ACDSee likewise - it's more an image management software but does have some good extra things built in and can easily handle cropping, resizing, rotating, etc. There are others and it may be worth the time Googling and trying some. (I've used Photoshop for so many years I haven't really looked at anything else since the last century).

    Like franko, I use Photoshop, BUT for an easy, quick and free image resizer, I don't think you can go past image tuner

    Take a look at this free program. Very simple. Only resizes.

    http://imageresizer.codeplex.com/

    Right click on an image in windows exlplorer and resize it.

    Whatever you choose, and I recommend trying out as many as you can get your hands on, understand that the algorithms driving image resizing are very complex and the reason some programs are more expensive than others is because there's been a lot more research gone into them. Watch particularly for artefacts along the edges in the image; this is where you'll see the difference. It's less so when reducing in size than when enlarging (at least, it's less apparent) but it will still be there. You will also need to optimise the image as well as simply reducing its size so check each program for this as well.

    That said, there are some very good free or cheap programs, particularly in the academic arena. I use qtpfsgui for HDR images, for example. It came out of science faculties and is every bit as good as HDR programs costing several hundred dollars. Hugin is a brilliant program for generating panoramas and is, again, free. Again, developed in academia to solve scientific problems but rapidly picked up by photographers in the know.

    As always, caveat emptor applies.

    thanks for the help, everyone. As you may suspect, I know enough to be dangerous. You have to start somewhere.

    One more choice is http://www.gimp.org/

    This allows a little more features in your image manipulation, such as cropping, save to different formats and compression control.
