Image Cycle: Add and Remove Images

Note: It is recommended that only 3-5 photos be used in the image cycle, however there are 10 "seats." Each photo should be exactly the same size as the others for best display.

  • The photo carousel displays the images consecutively from the lowest seat to  the highest seat. EMPTY seats are skipped.
  • To allow for a new photo to be displayed first, all of the photos thereafter must be deleted from their current seat and added to the next highest seat. 
  • A temporary solution is to place the images in the highest seats first. Add a new image to the next lowest empty seat and the images thereafter will not need to be moved.
