turn off imageScaleMode: fit for individual images?

Hi Dmitry,

I am quite happy with using imageScaleMode: 'fit', and it has solved a lot of my issues to do with responsiveness on the site. The properties I use to start Royal Slider:

  baseSliderProperties: {

      autoScaleSlider: true,
      autoScaleSliderWidth: 1,
      autoScaleSliderHeight: 1,
      arrowsNav: true,
      arrowsNavAutoHide: false,
      controlNavigation: 'none',
        deeplinking: {
            enabled: true,
            prefix: 'image-'
      fadeinLoadedSlide: true,
      imageAlignCenter: true,
      imageScaleMode: 'fit',
      keyboardNavEnabled: true,
      loop: true,
      loopRewind: true,
      numImagesToPreload: 6,
      slidesOrientation: 'horizontal',
      transitionType: 'fade',
      video: {
         autoHideBlocks: true,
         autoHideArrows: true,
         youTubeCode: '<iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/%id%?rel=1&autoplay=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>'

However, specifically on my older pages, I have photos that cannot take being scaled up to max;

/* -- Royal SLider. */
#main .royalSlider {
   margin: 0 auto;
   padding: 0px;
   width: 90%;
   max-width: 500px;

For example, the first couple of photos on the gallery here:

I can solve it by setting a smaller max-width on #main .royalSlider for just that page, but that will stop other good photos from being able to scale upwards too. If I put a height/width or max-height/max-width on an individual image, that breaks centering for that image..

Can I turn off fit scaling for individual images?

    You're probably looking for "fit-if-smaller" scale mode http://help.dimsemenov.com/kb/royalslider-jquery-plugin-faq/how-to-...

    Hi Dmitry,

    Sorry I wasn't clear enough. What I am ultimately after is some way of doing "fit-if-smaller" but only for specific images..

    I have tried setting max-height/max-width for those smaller images, but I lose the centering, so I am hoping there is still a way to do this only for some images.

    Oh, you may remove rsImg class from images that shouldn't have imageScaleMode, and then use CSS to align them how you want. It's the only option.

    OK, got it. Remove rsImg class and give it the class galleryImageCentre with the following definition:

    .royalSlider img.galleryImageCentre {
       left: 0;
       right: 0;
