On the slider configuration screen in General Options section you can see all available slider settings. Slider Items section allows you to add slides to your slider.
Let’s see what slider options are available. As you can see options are divided into several parts to make the configuration interface more user friendly.
This section allows you to set slider title, select store view, enable/disable slider, set its width and height. Each option refers to Slider Pro jQuery plugin property. Some jQuery plugin properties may not present in the FilmSlider configuration, we will add them in future releases.
Slider dimensions [width and height] can be set to a fixed value, like 900 [indicating 900 pixels], or to a percentage value, like ‘100%’.
In image section you can adjust slider image configuration settings. Each option has a brief description. Let’s describe some of them more specifically.

- cover — will scale and crop the image so that it fills the entire slide.
- contain — will keep the entire image visible inside the slide.
- exact — will match the size of the image to the size of the slide.
