SharePoint gives an awesome way to represent your sites with more attractive ways like adding Image sliders instead of using static images. Using image sliders we can display multiple images in a single space which will help in improving the page spacing and layout.
Image sliders are very important aspects of modern sites. SharePoint gives web part, called picture Library Slideshow Web Part that displays images on the chosen page.
Before creating picture Library Slideshow Web Part we need to create a picture library or a Document library to store the images from where the Web Part will display images on the chosen page.
Choose the same Image dimensions and aspect ratio for all images, even the slideshow workes fine the dimensions and layout will change and will not look good to avoid this you can give the same width and height pixels.
To resize the images you can get free image resizers on the internet to a number of the same pixel of height and width images.
