Yola Picture gallery - picture size issue

When using the yola picture gallery, is it possible to get a larger picture in the "slide show"? The one now is still quite small.
The tutorials on picture galleries all seem to refer to Flickr. If possible I don't want to go the "thumbnail - new page" route.
Thank you
Regards

Hi Gaby

If I am understanding your correctly, you would like the thumbnails to be larger.

The thumbnail size on the Yola Picture Gallery are all standardized. Right now, there is no way to change the size of the thumbnails.

If you would like to have larger thumbnails for your slide shows, there may be other slide shows that will offer you this feature, but it also means you will need to do some coding on your site. You may find the Yolacodes site a useful resource for alternative options.

Let us know if you need more help or have any questions.

Hi

Sorry, somehow I thought I had replied to this, but it seems I obviously got side tracked and never sent it off :-(, sorry about that.

No, the thumbnail size wasn't my question.
What I meant with my question is the actual picture that comes up when you "click" onto the small picture gallery thumbnail. The "large" picture is still very small. Can that be changed to a larger format?

Hello Gaby,

Thanks for clarifying. The size of your enlarged image will depend on the image size you are using.

Can you please share with us your URL so that we can see how small your image is coming up for us?

You guys are hopeless. Your Gallery viewer does not show the images at full size, it shrinks them dramatically and offers no way to set the display sizing when someone clicks the thumbnail. This is an issue for me too.

Hello Dan,

We're sorry to hear that you're not happy with the Picture Gallery Widget. We do appreciate the feedback given.

The only thing I'm wondering is what you mean by not having your images display at their full sizes? What sizes are your images and what size are they displaying?

I am trying to get my logos in the picture gallery but when they are in thumbnail you cannot see all of the logo, in other words it only displays part of the logo and you can only see the full size logo when you click on it. Can anybody tell me what size i must make my logos in order for the whole of the logo to be seen in the thumbnail?
Nobody seems to talk about the dimensions/pixels?

Hello loumcphie

The way the thumbnails are created is standardized and automatic. It will be difficult if not impossible to resize your logo to a size which will exactly fit into a thumbnail view.

Why would you like to add your logos to a Picture Gallery in the first place? The Picture Gallery is designed for larger images which will be previewed as thumbnails, but the more important view is the enlarged view.

It is a great shame the thumbnails cannot be bigger. They are so small it is very hard (some would say impossible) to see what the picture is about

I really hope this problem gets fixed soon. I can't upload regular pictures because they are so big. The gallery would be awesome if the images were of optimum size when clicked on the thumbnails.

My problem is the opposite. when I click on a thumbnail. I can only see about 1/6th of the picture.
Yola dropped their customer support team and started an email chat that is no more than an email system. No phone contact, no chat, no service
