Some of our Drupal 7 websites have an updated Slideshow. What makes this Slideshow different is the ablilty to place the marquee text at four different places on the slideshow or not show a marquee at all. The marquee text can be placed on the bottom, top, right or left part of the slideshow slide. The text field is limited to about 255 characters. In addition to the marquee text, the title and a slide link URL button can appear on the slide. The slide link URL text is limited to 128 characters. The minimum dimensions for the slide are 1008 X 350 pixels. You can use a larger size image and use the image mask to select the portion of the image you want to appear in the slideshow.
Example of the marquee on the bottom of the slide.
This type of slideshow slide is currently only on a few sites.
