There are two ways to insert a slideshow into the page:
1) From Page Settings -> Page Header settings.
Here, you can select the page title to be a slideshow (fig. 1.1):
and select appropriate slider. “Show header below slideshow” option allows you to display slideshow above the header (fig. 1.2). This options is important, because it is not available when inserting the slideshow using Elementor widget.
You can read more about Header style (default or transparent) here.
Important: these settings will not work if you have applied a header template for the page from Templates -> Theme builder -> Header, you will see a yellow warning as shown in the screenshot (fig. 1.3).
2) Elementor widget. Drag and drop such a widget as Slider Revolution or Slides, etc. to the page (fig. 2.1):

The7 is delivered together with extremely popular Slider Revolution plugin. Read on how to install it here. In Slideshow Options (fig. 4.2), you just need to select which slideshow to display and… that’s it.
Settings for this slider are very complicated (see fig. 6.2). However, it allows you to craft slider layout carefully and make showy “slider-gallery” type pages. We highly recommend this slider for photographers.
