The Custom Content Image Slide Type is one of 4 Custom Content Slide Types to choose from. This slide type is meant for mixed image and text content and is great for slideshows, tours and feature highlights. Choose a layout, choose an image, add your content and you are good to go. The Custom Content Image Slide Type can take images directly from an URL, a new image upload or an existing image in your Media Library.
Specify an Image
Your slide's image content can be pulled from multiple locations:
Upload an Image - This will upload an image to your WordPress Media Library and associate it with your slide
Specify a URL - This will take any URL you specify and use it as the slide's image
From Media Library - Specify any image from your Media Library as your slide's image
You have 3 options to choose from for the layout of the image slide type: Caption, Body Text, and None. Caption is the default layout and will display your text overlayed on the image at the top or bottom of the slide as specified with the Caption Position option. The Body Text layout will display your text overlayed on the image taking half the slide area for your text. Body Text is a great layout for slides with a large amount of text. If you do not wish to have any text on your slide, choose the None layout.
Specify an URL to link your entire slide area.
Specify a title for the slide. This will display in your slide's text area.
Specify a description or any long-form rich text message to display in your slide's text area.
Preferred Image Size
When uploading images in WordPress, multiple size variations of your upload are created to keep downloads small and prevent the interface from becoming too slow. We try to find the best size automatically within reason so that your images look the best and your SlideDeck operates smoothly. If you wish to override this automatic detection however, you can specify a size to use here.
Specify how images are scaled in your SlideDeck:
- Do Not Scale Images - Do not attempt to scale images at all. Images will be center aligned on the slide.
- Scale Proportionally and Crop - Scale the image so the entire slide area is covered and crop as appropriate. This works for most situations and is the default, but sometimes if your image aspect ratio does not match it may produce odd results.
- Scale Proportionally and Do Not Crop - Scale the image so the entire image fits within the slide area. This will show black bars to the sides of the image that do not fit in the SlideDeck's aspect ratio.
Change the position of the caption overlay for the Caption layout to the top or bottom of the slide.
Body Text Position
Change the position of the body text overly for the Body Text layout to the left or right side of the slide.
