Full screen images

I have a 1920x1080 presentation with a slideshow and a footer. Also files are hosted on RV storage.


The slideshow images are 1920x1080 also, but I've put them into a 1920x980  placeholder and set the images to scale to fill the placeholder, and made a bottom 'footer' that is 1920x100.

So ... what's happening is that the slideshow images are not displaying 1920 wide. They're all smaller in width than the presentation (1920).

Is there a way to fix this? Does the scaling keep aspect ratios, or does the scaling fill the placeholder's dimensions (even if the image is a little squished)?


P.S. As an aside, I've noticed that when I have videos (that are hosted on RV storage) play in a queue of presentations, there's usally a 'stutter' before they start where the screen shows black for a second or so, 'blips', then starts playing the video. Is there something to do about that also?

Hey Robert,

The Image Widget keeps aspect ratios, so in this case you will actually need to edit the images to the size you want them displayed.

We're aware of the loading screen before videos. It's something that we're looking into, but at this time we have no anticipated date for a resolution.

Might it als be possible to leave the images and the place holder full screen and place the footer place holder on top with a higher z index. And give it a background if needed ?

That is a good idea.  However a lot of our slideshow images have text at the bottom, and covering over the bottom of the image with the 'banner' would cover up that text.

Thanks though :)

You sure can do that Scott. Each Placeholder has a set Z Order number that you can edit in the Placeholder Properties:

I hope that helps!
