All my images have suddenly been converted to slide shows when I turned off this option. The ability to turn this off is gone as the 'settings' tab no longer displays the option to turn it off.
Anyone else notice this? Slide shows are not appropriate for my pages and they look silly.
It's even making slide shows when a hub just has one picture, and the "show slideshow" strip is covering up the caption.

I apologize for the confusion caused by our insufficient communication on this change.
Here is a blog post that explains the changes to the slideshow feature:

I'm having that problem too. Some of my illustrations have in-image captions (not watermarks) to make them Pinterest-friendly, and that text is getting cut off by the slideshow overlay.
