Seems difficult to help without more details. Did you really resize the picture? Where can I see this site?

also note that sometimes the image is there... if you navigate sometimes it goes Gray...no slideshow. then you refresh 2-3 times it comes back..... what the hell!

I would resize the image and name it something else before you upload it. sometimes using the same name while uploading and including may just retina the old one.
also just to test the sizing use a completely different image

This isn't really a WordPress issue.  It's an issue with that slideshow plugin or theme feature you are using.  In short, it's poorly coded and that's why you're having issues with it.

I would contact the author and see if they can help.  We can't really do anything merely by looking at the output.

"I did resize event to 100x100 !! and the result is that the image becomes ALL fuzzy"
the easiest option but more legwork is to resize the images to something bigger than 100x100
to say 250 h x 350 wide, but the plugin will say what size the images  should be.
 and some plugins let you set the image size in the plugin. in the options of settings area.

as others have said more info would help -  what is the name of the plugin? do you know how to change the settings? (usually under <settings> or <plugin>-<plugin name-settings>
