Images are too large

Please help. I want my slider to look like this one I created in NextGen Pro http://www.brandphotojournalist.com/gallery/. This nextgen one doesn't function the way I want it to so I bought Royal Slider.

Here is the Royal Slider version http://www.brandphotojournalist.com/ which has several problems: 1) the images are far too large much larger than their true size 525-735.

I've tried adding change image size to the functions.php file and using the image size plugin to hard code the image sizes. And I've exhausted the settings for the gallery I'm using. Nothing is working.

I want the slider to be no more than 525 high and I want the images right next to each other and no margins on the top or bottom of the slider.

Nothing I do has worked. I have been at it all day. Please advise.

    Hello,

    Height of the slider can be adjust from Size & Scaling section, please refer to for more info http://help.dimsemenov.com/kb/royalslider-jquery-plugin-faq/how-to-...

    Continuously scrolling layout like you have on the page that you linked is not supported. You may only reveal nearby slides, like here - https://dimsemenov.com/plugins/royal-slider/visible-nearby/

    I added:

    .royalSlider {
          height: 525px !important;
       }

    And it is an improvement, http://www.brandphotojournalist.com. But I'd really like to get those slides closer together.

    What are the slide spacing and image scale padding for if not to get those slides closer together. Is there nothing else I can do?

    And why did I have to add css to get the slider to proper height. The parameters I set in the options panels had zero effect. It makes no sense.

    If your images have the same dimensions, you may use this technique to show them side by side - http://help.dimsemenov.com/discussions/problems/4068-visiblenearby-...

    All slides have the same width, so adjusting these options affects all slides.

    Options, such as auto-height or auto-scale-slider can override default static height.
