Selecting the correct ratio for a photo slider

Pictures tell a thousand words. Therefore, all our Responsive Hotel Website templates in the Design Store include large picture sliders to tell your hotel's story. In order to show pictures at optimum size, we have made adding, organizing and cropping easier. 

This article assumes that you are already familiar with Adding and organizing images in your website via the CMS.


Every template from the Design Store has it's own size of picture sliders. However, these Galleries all have common ratios. A ratio is the relative width versus height of a picture. The following common ratios are available:

  • 16:9
  • 4:3
  • 3:2


Select the correct ration when you add a new Gallery into the Content Management System (CMS) of your website. 


Importance of selecting the correct ratio 

When you wish to create a professional website, it is highly important to crop pictures at the correct ratio.
