Hi Rick,

I am a beginner at this, but taking your tutorials to learn.  I have downloaded and installed the BYOB Feature Box Layout Plugin and properly added new slides to my site following the instructions in your tutorial.  I was careful to select the "full size" option for the JPG which is 2832 X 2128 as a test and properly saved and added it to my slideshow. 

Using Firefox, I see the feature box, instead, displays a thumbnail of the picture–a right click on the picture reveals that the picture has been scaled down to 150 X 75.  What is causing this?  Thanks.

Valerie, welcome to the forum.  I'd need to see the site to know for sure.  Why don't you post a link to the site.

However, 2832 x 2128 is way too big.  It could be that the plugin is automatically scaling the image down.  Which plugin are you using to display the slides?

I think the problem here is that the size of your images don't match the size of the slideshow which doesn't match the size of the feature box.

You've defined the size of row 1 column 1 as 640 x 200.  However, you've defined the size of the slideshow as 1000 x 500.  The images themselves are 1000 x 500.  You should resize the images so they are the same size as slideshow which should be the same size as row 1 column 1.

It'll probably work then.
