Slideshow Issues

Community Member

Hello.  Does anyone know how to get the Slideshow for Google photos on Chromecast w/GTV to show the ENTIRE photo?  When I look at the slideshow, some pictures are enlarged so the top and bottom or the sides are cut off.

Anyway to set it so it will not adjust the picture size and show the full photo?

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

What you are looking for is something called Letterboxing; adding black bars to the top/bottom or sides.

Unfortunately, Ambient Mode doesn't have that option.

You can use the Feedback system to tell Google that you would like that.

Google doesn't read every post in this forum but they do read and track all the feedback they receive that way. Just so you know, they won't respond directly to feedback so don't ask them any questions.

Thanks Byteguy.  I will send feedback as you suggested, however, my expectations from Google feedback have been disappointing to say the least.
