Dreamweaver - Created a slideshow using dreamweaver

Hello,

I am creating a slideshow on my website and I got the slideshow to come up fine. However, behind the pictures that are rotating, there is a white box. Do you know how I can get rid of it? Thank you.

Without seeing a sample, hard to say.  Either the CSS for the slideshow has a white (instead of transparent) background or some image is white.

Thank you. The background color was set to white. Now, when I hit play, it looks perfect, however, when I view in my browser, the pictures are not there. The only thing there is a gray setup box. Any suggestions?

I got the pictures to come up okay however, once I log onto the website, it shows a scan bar for all the pictures being uploaded. Is there a way around this? Takes forever for the pictures to come up in slide show mode. Thanks

No idea.  Changing a background color shouldn't affect the foreground.  Can you give us a link to look at?

Depends on how the images are being pulled in and displayed.  If it has to load and dynamically resize the images each time it is invoked, then there may be nothing you can do except use a better script.

Do you happen to know what the maximum size the pictures should be? I'm guessing they're too big but when I make the changes, I want to do it to the correct size.

There really isn't such a thing as "maximum" size.  Generally speaking, you want to generate images that are 72 DPI and sized to be only as big as you want them.  It's stupid to post 4000x3000 images and use HTML or CSS to scale it.
