  • Add the top of the slider page shown above, click the “Add New” button.

Important Note:   Very Large image sizes will drastically reduce website performance.    Current image sizes are around 400K and have been edited to be about 1000 x 667 pixels.     You made need to resize any very large images with Photoshop or any photo editor before using on your site.      Note that some of your original images are 4320 x 3240 or larger which makes them about 15 MB.      Resizing them down to 1000 x 667 should get them to an appropriate size.    If files are still over 500K, use the “Save for Web” feature in photoshop to get them down below 500K.
