To have variable sized logos scrolling in Placid Slider, please follow the below steps:- 1. Go to Placid Slider Settings => Basic Settings Tab => Slide (Item) Width => Delete the value in it (it should contain nothing i.e. should be blank). 2. Under Placid Slider Settings => Basic Settings Tab => Estimated maximum width of the Slide Item => Enter the average of the widths of the logo images (this can be an approximate value) [ Explanation: Actually the field is average width of the images (mathematical average). Let me explain, in case you have variable width images in Placid say 5 images with width 100, 120, 300, 400 and 250. then their average width will be (100 + 120 + 300 + 400 + 250 ) / 5 i.e. 234. So you can enter a round figure as 250 or 230. If you use fixed width images then it is no issues. But in case you use variable width images this average field helps the Slider to decide the width of complete slider. ] 3. Go to Placid Slider Settings =>Thumbnail Image Tab => Image Size => Width => Delete the value in it (it should contain nothing i.e. should be blank). 4.
