slideshow images are distorted

See the slideshow on this page?

http://leafyhead.com/pages/Home.cfm

Notice the images in the slideshow are quite distorted -- increased in size so that they overfill the allotted parameters of the slideshow.

Why is that happening? I've been staring at this for hours. Thank you for any advice.

Hello;

I think adaptiveHeight parameter of slideshow can solve your problem. If you can edit kickstart.js, you can change adaptiveHeight parameter false to true.

If you can't edit kickstart.js, please try to put this code any row after than body tag (Home.cfm) for reload slider with new settings:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
	var slider=$('.slideshow').bxSlider();
	e.preventDefault();
	slider.reloadSlider({
		mode: 'horizontal',
		video: true,
		useCSS: true,
		pager: true,
		speed: 500,
		startSlide: 0,
		infiniteLoop: true,
		captions: true,
		adaptiveHeight: true,
		touchEnabled: true,
		pause: 4000,
		autoControls: false,
		controls: false,
		autoStart: true,
		auto: true
	});
});
</script>

Deniz,

Thank you for your kind and helpful reply.

I will try the script that you suggest.

However, I am not sure where to place this script. I have tried the script inside the <HEAD></HEAD> tag, and after the </BODY> tag. Neither place seemed to have any effect.

What do you suggest?

Thank you for your help. =)

You are welcome. I hope this code can solve your problem.

You can put that code after than <body> tag or before than </body> tag.

Kind Regards

Got it!

Hmm ... I tried after the <BODY> tag: http://leafyhead.com/pages/Home.cfm

Looks like the images are still distorted.

Any idea what I could be missing? =)

Thank you again, Deniz.

I downloaded your codes and i tried. My code working but first slideshow still running with parameters from kickstart.js.
Kickstart.js catching slideshow class. So, if you change your slideshow class to slideshow2, it will work.

This is your solution:
1.)  Change your slideshow class to slideshow2 (<ul class="slideshow2">)

2.) Put this code after <body> tag:
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
	var slider=$('.slideshow2').bxSlider({
		mode: 'horizontal',
		video: true,
		useCSS: true,
		pager: true,
		speed: 500,
		startSlide: 0,
		infiniteLoop: true,
		captions: true,
		adaptiveHeight: true,
		touchEnabled: true,
		pause: 4000,
		autoControls: false,
		controls: false,
		autoStart: true,
		auto: true
	});
});
</script>

By distorted do you mean they are stretched by width and height?
if that is the case ,then you should just delete the width and height option you added to your images code:
<li><img src="https://lh5.go...d1.jpg" alt="" width="550" height="350" /></li>

Open in new window

should become:
<li><img src="https://lh5.go...d1.jpg" alt="" /></li>

Dear aboo_s,

Thanks for your note.

>>>>then you should just delete the width and height option you added to your images code:
Indeed, I tried that already.

These are the correct dimensions for the images: width="550" height="350"

The images are very big ... or, at least, they are magnified.

I think something is going on with the javascript and / or the CSS. The BX Slider has gone a little crazy.

Thank you for the idea, though.

Friends, I really appreciate your helpful notes. I have simplified code as much as I can; the weird behavior in the slideshow persists. I am going to use another slideshow script -- maybe I can find an all-CSS slideshow.

Thank you again for your thoughtful replies.
