Hi! Could you please tell me what I have to do to change the size of the home slide? 980px by 455px is too big for what I need. Thank you!
The size I want is: 980px by 365px.
1. You need to change the slider image height from functions.php line number 120 from 445 to 365 as displayed in this image. http://screencast.com/t/y9i9QGY5
2. after that you need to modify style.css and change the .slides height to 365px from 445px as displayed in this image http://screencast.com/t/jUUTdJ5V . you also need to reduce the slider-wrap height from 522px to 442px on line number 301 as displayed in same image.
3. after doing above changes you need to install following plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/ and regenerate thumbnails again. this will re-crop slider images to new size
4. test your website and I hope you will have slider with your mentioned size.
