Does the Responsive Banner Slider support different banner sizes?

I need to display banners which are actually logos that come in different sizes.

I would want to restrict the width to a certain size and have the module work out the according height.

Can this module achieve this?

Thank you.

    Hi ozwest, There are three types of sliders themes/effect available at the moment ; nivo, adaptor and sequences. Nivo is able to handle images with different height (the slider height will be resized automatically when the slides changed). Adaptor does not support it (smaller images will be stretched into size that is defined in the module backend) and Sequence is able to handle images with different sizes but with a different way to handle it (see demo in here : http://demo.templateplazza.com/joomla/index.php/responsive-banner-slider)

    Hope this helps :)

    Uuups, I have just installed the module and it does not quite work that way.

    There is an option for the height size but not the width.

    Having said that, it seems that it adjusts itself to the width but the display look weird.

    Aaaah, I see what you actually said is that the images have to be the same width but height can vary.

    I actually thought of it the other way. My images all have the same height but different widths.

    So what I need is a module that reads the width and then scales it to the with of the module (in my case 180px) and then displays the image in ratio so that it is not stretched.

    Is there any change to make this happen?

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. Sorry :(
    But hey, isn't it easy to edit the images to have the same width and height? I think it's a better instead of to strecth the images that will make the images presence look not good.

    I know what you mean but if you have a look (see link) I have the existing banners (logos in this case) which change all the time and they all have the same height so that I can display them nicely on this page.

    Now the slider module should use the same images, hmmh, and this is where I become stuck. I want to make it easy for the person who has to maintain the website.

    Any other ideas?

    Hmh, also why is your module doubling the logos up? I think I could live with it if just the height is adjusted as it seems to adhere to the width?

    Hmmm strange, can you give me a screenshot of your responsive banner slider settings?

    Can you switch the website template to the default Beez template for a moment, to check whether this is a template problem or not?

    I have switched it over to Beez3 and the same problem exists. Had to switch back though as other people are commenting on the draft at the moment.

    Hmm this is likely because of the difference of banners width. To make it sure can you try to publish banners with the same width and height only, and then test to publish banner with the same width only ?Please let me know the result then

    All right, I have created three same size banners and a fourth one with a different height. So the width is all the same.

    It seems to display correctly.

    My solution needs to go the other way around, all banners have the same height but the width is different.

    Hmm it looks like the nivo library is not designed to be working that way. sorry :(
    You probably can use the adaptor type but it will stretch the width too, so the logo will look bad too

    Yes, you are right - Adaptor stretches the banners too. Out of my wits now ...

    Would it be possible to get a refund?
