Drupal Lite 7: Add Rotating Images to a Page

Description

In Drupal Lite, if mulitiple images are added to the Banner, they will automatically be displayed as rotating images. The first image will be displayed for a few seconds, and then switch to the next image. The images will keep changing every few seconds. On the edges of the image, small arrows allow the viewer to change the image.

If you change the layout of the page, you can place the rotating banner image into a smaller region. The image below shows a page with 2 column layout. The banner image automatically resizes to fit the width of the region.
