In system > design > banners , when you insert a banner, for each image you add to it , you can also add a title and a link.
how do i add links to banners?
You can add more slides(images) in a banner, when you create it in admin by going to system > design > banners.
Why am I not able to add more than 2 slides in the slideshow Opencart 1.5x version
In admin > extension > modules > edit slideshow and there you can change the height and width of the banner.
