Thank you for your comments.
The pictures on the slide show have to be shown in proportion to the original image. That is why they don't take up the whole screen. The only reason there is any slide show at all is because the previous site had them. I do not favor having a slide show at the top of any pages. In fact, I think it looks better with no slide show and they take up space on the page. Maybe that is the way I should have done it originally and waited for comments.
Since there are two of us that feel the same way I will disable them on the front page and see if I get any comments. By the time you read this they should be gone. I'll bet I don't get any complaints.
It is my plan to replace the slide shows with videos but I don't have any yet. I have asked members to notify me if they have any (it is on the Discussion Forum).
