  1. Hoi Ferdy, op je telefoon worden de afbeelden in de header slider helemaal ingezoomd, waardoor er je de afbeelding niet meer ziet. Hoe kan dit opgelost worden, waardoor de afbeelding in zijn geheel wel te zien is? Ook op jouw voorbeeld website zijn de afbeeldingen niet juist weergegeven, lijkt me niet bedoeling toch? Alvast bedankt!
