    • Image Tips: Choose images that are horizontal in nature. The image slider always has the solid color bar on the left which will obscure some of your image
    • Image Size: Your images should fit nicely at 800 x 600 pixels at 72 DPI. This will allow you to move the image around a bit to get the best placement.
    • Photo Editors: If you do not have access to Photoshop, you can find free simple image editors such as GIMP

  6. Enter the Text relating to the slide, typically 15-20 words
  7. Select what Background color you want your left side image bar
  8. Under Link, create Title if you are linking to another page. Using Read More will fit nicely within the space, this is optional if you want to include links.
  9. Enter the URL to where the slide should jump to when clicked. It can link to an inside page, and outside URL or a document you have uploaded to your website.
