tile type "slideshow"

I am using this tile type for slideshow with 7 images at moment. When adding further images, slideshow is not working properly:

1) sometimes showing part of image or
2) no image.

But always it starts again with image1. Did I make a mistake? Or what can I do?

Re: tile type "slideshow"

If pictures are large in size may be a problem. especially in mobile version.
first you must reduce the size of images (150x150 px max, 72 pixels)

Re: tile type "slideshow"

In first group I have a slide show on 3x3-tile with 480px. Pictures are not very smoothly. But when reducing size of pictures the quality will be poor. Should I convert pictures from .jpg to .png?

Re: tile type "slideshow"

My group is 140*140 px, 72 dpi, and 4-8 kb, jpg format, and is currently working: metinciris.com.tr
http://metinciris.com.tr/img/kutu/01.jpg, 02.jpg, 03.jpg...

resolution change: open freeware Paint.Net program program --> image --> resize --> resolution: 72 dpi, pixel size:140x140 px

for minimum size, photo image should be jpg, others png or gif smile

Re: tile type "slideshow"

png is best format for websites as it supports transparency and has a good compression ration even in lines, lettering and small graphics (5-20% better that gif);
jpg is a compression system best for transferring file also good for web but is best suited for photographic pictures or complex graphics (fonts rendered in jpeg are high size because there's not much to compress without affecting clarity)
gif best for animations (also supports transparency, has better compression compared to jpg, but is proprietary license), etc


Good advice is often confusing, but example is always clear.
