Hi, again. My website is www.barbarajamesyoga.com (http://www.barbarajamesyoga.com). I read relevant forum threads about adding a Flash slideshow, and downloaded and used Flash Slideshow Maker. I found it pretty easy to do (for not even knowing what Flash was before this), and I've even published it to my site per BlueVoda's tutorials.

1) I noticed in the preview on the Flash Slideshow-maker that my pictures are all sized correctly, meaning the same way they are on my computer in Pictures. However, after publishing the slideshow, some of them load a bit distorted (too long). I have gone back to the sitebuilder and adjusted the Flash "box" dimensions, but it's still "off." Is there a set dimension or way I can make the pictures display the way they were in the preview?

2) Just thought of another question: you've mentioned before that our pages should be 800 X 980, which mine is. But what if you want to add more length to the page so that more stuff will fit on it? What would be an optimal longer dimension, if there is one?

I hope these questions make sense to you.
Thanks,
Barbara

On your last question, there is no optimal length.

You can keep adding items(change the page length in page properties) the only thing is, that it will make your pages load a little slower.

Ok, good to know.

Do you have any suggestions for #1?

I just looked using IE and they all look the same, and fine from here.

Alright. Thanks. They look stretched to me, but I'll leave it alone.
