Hello- Please see here: test.magickitchen.com/responsive/

The slider at the top, I would like two changes.

1. I'd like the picture to be smaller, The size is: 1,140px × 450px (scaled to 1,583px × 625px). I guess that's because of my screen size.  I'd like it to be smaller in height, it doesn't really work well on a mobile either.

2. I'd like it to scroll automatically.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Because the site is responsive, the image fills the width of the screen.  If you want the height of the image to be different you either need to reduce the width of the image or post another image with a different ratio of width to height.

2. I'd like it to scroll automatically.
I'm assuming it's this plugin?  => http://dimsemenov.com/plugins/royal-slider/documentation/#api 

in your
$(document).ready(function() {
   ...
    slider.startAutoPlay();
   ...
});

In the section (I've added the code at the end):
if($('.animated-fullwidth').length){
		jQuery.rsCSS3Easing.easeOutBack = 'cubic-bezier(0.175, 0.885, 0.320, 1.275)';
		$('.animated-fullwidth').each(function(index, el) {
			$(this).royalSlider({
				arrowsNav: true,
				arrowsNavAutoHide: false,
				fadeinLoadedSlide: false,
				controlNavigationSpacing: 0,
				controlNavigation: 'bullets',
				autoScaleSlider: true, 
				autoScaleSliderWidth: 960,     
				autoScaleSliderHeight: 350,
				imageScaleMode: 'fill',
				imageAlignCenter:false,
				blockLoop: true,
				loop: true,
				numImagesToPreload: 6,
				transitionType: 'fade',
				keyboardNavEnabled: true,
				block: {
					delay: 400
				}
			});	
// You can get slider instance from royalSlider data:
var slider = $(this).data('royalSlider');
slider.startAutoPlay();
		});
	}

I believe I added it correctly, but it isn't auto-playing:  http://test.magickitchen.com/responsive/js/custom.js

That's ok, we'll try a different tact. Instead of trying to call a function, just add the autoplay as another option when creating it:

autoPlay: {
                // autoplay options go gere
                enabled: true,
                pauseOnHover: true
          }

I added it there, but I'm not sure that's what you mean?

No...add it to the .js not the .css

Same place you put my code before http:#a40537730, except within the initialization

Ie

if($('.animated-fullwidth').length){
		jQuery.rsCSS3Easing.easeOutBack = 'cubic-bezier(0.175, 0.885, 0.320, 1.275)';
		$('.animated-fullwidth').each(function(index, el) {
			$(this).royalSlider({
				arrowsNav: true,
				arrowsNavAutoHide: false,
				fadeinLoadedSlide: false,
				controlNavigationSpacing: 0,
				controlNavigation: 'bullets',
				autoScaleSlider: true, 
				autoScaleSliderWidth: 960,     
				autoScaleSliderHeight: 350,
				imageScaleMode: 'fill',
				imageAlignCenter:false,
				blockLoop: true,
				loop: true,
				numImagesToPreload: 6,
				transitionType: 'fade',
				keyboardNavEnabled: true,
				block: {
					delay: 400
				},
autoPlay: {
                // autoplay options go gere
                enabled: true,
                pauseOnHover: true
          }
			});	

		});
	}

absolutely, just add a delay option in milliseconds where 5000 = 5sec: http://dimsemenov.com/plugins/royal-slider/documentation/#autoplay

taking just the autoplay section:

autoPlay: {
                // autoplay options go gere
                enabled: true,
                pauseOnHover: true,
                delay: 5000
          }
