If Mobile Shows Empty Space Around Slideshow

Options if home page slide-show has extra blank space above & below

When you use a home/main page slideshow that includes horizontal and vertical images, plus it's set to the Contain setting, the software makes room for the various shapes/ratio.

It's not obvious on a large monitor like desktop, but on mobile - especially viewing vertically on a cell phone with it's skinny format - it can cause extra blank space above and below the horizontal images. The more panoramic they are, the more extra space.

Examples from Mobile

Like these:

Now, some designers find negative space to be soothing and a good thing. Not a fan?


There are 3 solutions:

a) Choose images with similar format for your slideshow - all vertical for example.

b) Choose the Cover option for your slideshow (instead of Contain) - this crops images that don't fit. This style gives your site visitors a feel for your work but leaves them wanting more.

c) Use a single main/home page image in lieu of the slideshow.
