    Hi There,
    I need help with finding the optimal image size for the responsive slider.
    I started out with images that are 960px x 400px with a text overlay, but the client wants the text on the right and image on the left (kind of like http://www.letsmove.gov/).
    Using CSS I have created a solid background for the excerpt of 400px high and 40% wide and added a 10px border to the left of the excerpt to separate it from the image.
    My next thought was to have an image 60% wide (560px) and 400px high with a 3px white border, however when I upload that image it pushes everything down. Its exactly the same height as the others and same resolution.
    I hope this all makes sense. My website is http://test1.moragareid.com/
    Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks

    Your other images are actually 920×300, it looks like. With that slider plugin you need to upload new images if you change the size of the slider.


    I do the best I can with what I’ve got. (say hey on twitter)

    Duh! Thanks Robin.

    Its weird though, when I checked the size in the Media Library it def says 400px.  Oh well.
