Windows 8.1 Lock Screen Slideshow

Sometimes the Windows 8.1 Lock Screen Slideshow will create a collage.  Is there a way to turn the collage functionality off so that all the pictures are always shown full screen and/or full-sized?

Hello GHogge
You're running the new windows 8.1?
Isn't that being released in October this year?

Laptop or desktop?
Must be pretty new ;) congrats!!

If your personal pictures have many different dimensions may be the slideshow settings cannot compensate a small image to full screen,  are you using any apps?

Thank you but please explain why the B grading on my answer,
Without your feedback and responses to my questions I can only offer questions and possible ideas as I said.
B  is the grade given for acceptable solutions, or a link to an acceptable solution.
A B grade means the solution given lacked some information or required you to do a good amount of extra work to resolve the problem.
When closing the question, the asker should explain why a B grade was awarded.
