Q: I have not been able to get the slider to run with a transparent background.
Can this be done? I want the slider with transparent background...
A: Please, try to use .png files.
uncheck "Image fill color" option.
Also you can change your images on .png manually.
1) Upload your .png images to data/images folder
2) Change image format in generated .html code. For example:
... <span><img src="data1/images/image1.jpg" alt="" title="" id="wows1"/></span> ...
