The Showcase Shopify theme is all about imagery! You can choose to:
- Fill window: 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!
- Fit 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.
TIP! For each slide you add, there is a useful option called 'Image alignment'. This allows you to ensure the most important part of your image is shown when you have the layout option set to 'Fill window'.
