Adjusting the Size of the Slideshow Image

  2. Hover over the menu bar where it shows EXTENSIONS, then scroll down the drop-down menu and click on MODULES.
  3. Scroll down the list of modules until you find the module named SLIDESHOW.  At the far right of the screen you will see the option for EDIT for the SLIDESHOW module.  Click on EDIT to proceed.
