- Desktop & mobile specific images: (Added in 4.1.0) You can now select the perfect portrait image on mobile.
- Full screen: This will crop the image to fit both the height and width of the screen being viewed. Selecting a suitable image and testing on varying devices is important with this option!
- Adapt to first image: This retains the original image aspect ratio, so whilst it will fill the width on all device sizes, the height will alter to maintain the original entire image content.
- Fixed height: You can specify the height of the slideshow on desktop and mobile
