I'm using carousel with NextGen gallery. On my page, if you click on a thumbnail, it opens a link directly to the full size image. I want it to open into a slideshow like it does on the Pagelines demo page. I suspect this is a problem with Imagerotator, but I'm not sure. It's installed in uploads, but clicking the "Search Now" button doesn't find it. I've entered the path to imagerotator.swf manually, but it doesn't give any feedback as to whether it's found it. Sample page here:

Also, how do I keep the thumbnails from stretching? The images are rectangular, but the thumbnails are square- I want a cropped thumbnail, but it is forcing it to the same aspect ratio as the original image, then stretching it to fit the square thumbnail size used in the carousel. Any help would be appreciated.

Changed effect to "Thickbox" and now it's working. Figured out the icons too.
