The details shared here apply to the most recent version of Artisan. To keep your theme up to date, check out this helpful document.
In the Artisan theme, you can use the Slideshow section on the home page to create a slideshow that includes multiple slides or you can use this section with only 1 slide to simply have a static banner image displayed (similar to the Image with Text Overlay section in some of our other themes).
Step 1: To add a Slideshow section, head into Customize > under Sections, click 'Add section' and select Slideshow.
Step 2: In your 'slideshow' section, click 'add slide' to select your image and text that you'd like your static banner image to have!
Since you're only uploading 1 slide, this will become a static image instead of a rotating slideshow
If you'd like to turn this into a slideshow, you can simply add multiple slides!
