I want to hide the thumbnails row coming above a photo capsule and show the capsule as a slideshow only, but find no option to hide the row of thumbnails appearing above the slideshow. Please help. Thanks.
All the photos appear in a slideshow and above it the thumbnail of all the photos appear in a row. When I click with border or no border in the edit photo capsule, the slideshow disappears and all the photos appear in full one after other downwards. I want to remove the thumbnails and retain all the photos in the slideshow. What should I do?
Aren't those a part of the slideshow? Namely to show people that there is a slideshow?
I post a lot of pictures in my hubs. I don't click on "thumbnail" unless I want thumbnail to show. The slideshow will automatically appear if you have 5 or more pictures in one hub. Just post your pictures with or without borders, and if you have 5 or more pictures after you clicked publish, the slideshow will automatically appear. The slideshow is not our choice, it is automatic.
The point is that if the thumbnails are shown, visitors would click on the thumbnails and possibly not on the slideshow. Slideshow has ads on each page, but if thumbnail clicked the photo will appear only on the existing page. That will affect the revenue.
I haven't been arrogant in my words. Any person of objective sense can understand the tone of my words. I have been telling the reason for such a need for me. And stating such a point is useful for other new and under-experienced hubbers as well.
The main purpose of hubbing is earning passive revenue for the majority of hubbers. If it has occasioned evoking ill-feeling in you, I say, I never intended so and my words do not have such an import. In tone and tenor of my talk there is no scope for such a castigtion. Though I am innocent of the charge, I beg your pardon.
Of course, you should elaborate and explain the source of your needs. That enriches the discussion. However, it would have been even more conducive to the discussion if you had at least acknowledged some of the points previously made.
Disabling those thumbs on top would make sense. However, HubPages only provides the features it does; it is not our - the community's - fault. Thus my advice to take it up with HubPages, requesting that they furnish or guide you towards such a feature, and explain to them why that should be done.
Disabling the Thumbnails has been repeatedly suggested. The OP seems to have a problem understanding this.
I am sorry that I didn't acknowledge the suggestion from you and others. It was because I know those aspects and had tried them but didn't find useful.
Anyway, it is a good suggestion that we take the matter with Hubpages team for better revenue for all.
I'm sorry. I forgot to thank you again. Thank you very much for your patience and help.
Thank you Sofs and WE for your useful advice and suggestions.

I have received an email from an editor as follows -'please remove walls of photos by consolidating them into a photo capsule and using the "thumbnail" option to create a slideshow. Feel free to use a few throughout the piece'.I can't find a thumbnail option and I'm bamboozled. Can anyone...

How can I use a thumbnail capsule on my hub?I used a topic template to create a hub and it had a capsule with one large photo and then several thumbnails to chose from. I added my own photos to the capsule but now each is being displayed full size and I can't work out out to get it back to how it...

I know traffic is a problem everywhere it seems; I'm not talking about low traffic, here. We all need to be aware of the HP's photo capsule may be affecting our bounce rates. There is a real problem if you use the photo capsule for anything-- even the intro photo. I'm NOT referring to the images...

I noticed several hub pages that have slides in them. I don't see the facility for doing that unless you use the photo capsule somehow.

I have seen in most of the hubs about how they are keeping thumbnail images even after a list of photos. for example: if we have 20 pics, how we can keep only 5 or 6 thumbnail images on above the slide show.

I spend endless hours maybe two months ago redesigning my first photo so they would look good on the thumbnails on the profile pages and also on facebook. The latest change has made all that work a waste.A few of the thumbnails look better, but most now look off-kilter and have the text cut off. I...
