Slider Plugin for WordPress

Hi Experts,

Can anyone recommend a good lightweight WP Plugin for slider.  I need it to be 100% of its container and forgiving of the image size. Perhaps concentrating on the center and cropping what’s extra on the sides.

Any current slider plug in will do what you are asking. Which ones have you looked at already?  As far as image size, I use smush for images https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-smushit/

As of late, I have been using elementor for building WP and there is a slider widget built in https://elementor.com/widgets/slides-widget/   One thing I like about elementor is the ease of use for manipulating responsive elements.
