Tips for size and resolution of slides:

b) In non one-page themes, the max size of slide can be up to 1220 x 301. For the best image quality displayed, the original size of slide should not be less than 1220 x 301.
c) actual size of slide would vary corresponding to the width of browser. But the aspect ratio of the slide is maintained in 3.04.
