When I try to add different size images to nivo slider, it causes slider to expand to image size. Even if I add overflow:hidden to #slider, it seems not to work. Adding extra div with overflow hidden and dimensions causes control buttons not to show up. Does anyone have solution to this problem or do I have to use, extact size images as slider ?

Its very strange because even old slider like s3slider seems to work properly with different size images.

If you want to keep the same slider size for all pictures, why not resizing all images ?

Thanks but “So obviously, first thing first, we need to change the width and the height of the slider to match our images”. This still needs cropping.

So it seems the only way is to crop images to be exact size of the slider.

Why the heck does everyone use it, damn it.

Ok, can i at least move the control nav outside the default container (everthing related to the nivo slider is in one damn div, why can’t i put the control nav in the parent div.

It’s free.

I thought sliders by their very nature were designed to slide through a set of images of the same size, and if they aren’t the same size they’d surely just be resized and look rubbish anyway.

Nop, but anything is doable in CSS , you can style the controllers how ever you want.
