I just made my gallery worse...
I just followed these instructions for my gallery on my home page:
"[QUOTE=Justin Nemeth;48034]You'll need to do a few things. You need to edit the admin/common/properties.php file and add your custom size to either the cropped or proportional array. By default the dissolve slideshow uses the cropped 782x481 size. So if you wanted to add 500x300 for example, you would add a line that looks like this to the array of your choice.
array('w' => 500, 'h' => 300, 'watermark' => true)
In your case it sounds like you want proportional images, so add it to that array. After that edit, you need to reprocess all the images that will use this size. You can do that by selecting your gallery, then go to settings and click the update watermark button.
Last step would be to edit the gallery itself - edit galleries/slideshow_dissolve/index.php and on line 14 change 782c to 500p. Basically 500 is the width you want and p is for proportional (c is for cropped)."
What have I done (I edited my slideshow_wide/index.php and the admin/common/properties.php files.
If it is easier for me to replace a few files I will. What I really want to know is the steps to control the size of my gallery. Will this happen every time I drop a gallery into a div or are there specific divs that are the correct size? I'd like to know what size and proportions my original images should be.
