Hello, could you please tell me how I can reduce the carousel size on the homepage so that the image doesn't cover the entire screen and is smaller?

Hey @caterina12345.

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

I appreciate that you have included your online store URL as that is very helpful! That is a great question.

 

Looking into the Dawn theme, I noticed that we can make minor changes to the size of the slideshow section by using the Theme Editor. Once you navigate to the Theme Editor, you can select the slideshow section to make changes to the size. I took a screenshot from my test store to show you the section I am referring to:

You can make adjustments to the theme using the settings layout and width of the slideshow section.

 

Let me know if that does the trick for you.

Thank you, Ollie. Is there any way to reduce the size of the container on the image?

Hey @caterina12345.

 

Thanks for the quick response.

 

Making changes to the size of the container for the slides on the section is not available using the Theme Editor. However, you could make a custom coding change to the theme to have the slideshow displayed as you would like. Since the Dawn theme is designed and supported by Shopify, you can use free design time for Shopify themes to have our internal team make the changes on your behalf.

If you are interested in using the design time, you will need to login to your store using the Contact Us page. This will allow us to securely verify you as the store owner before speaking directly with a Support Advisor about the change you would like to see.

 

Alternatively, if you would like to hire an individual to complete this task, you can reach out to a Shopify Expert.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.
