Yesterday, after a quick update on Smooth Slider; some of our users reported issue with the slider image. For certain cases, slider images stopped appearing and that was happening because of a new feature (image crop with timthumb) included in version 2.1 of Smooth Slider.
We do apologize for this issue and today we have released the fix for the same. Smooth Slider 2.1.1 is released today where we have provided an option to choose whether you want to use timthumb for image cropping or not.
==> New – Added an option whether to crop images or not. This was essential after version 2.1 because, some of us use the images from other location than the wordpress installation. In that case timthumb does not operate
After upgrading to Version 2.1.1, you will see a new option under Image Size on Smooth Slider settings page. If you want to use timthumb for image cropping on smooth slider, you just need to check the box beside that option. Here is the screenshot of the same.
