How To Set Billboard Defaults?

Hi Tim, I'm sure there's a place, but I just can't find out how to set default settings for billboards.  Can you point me in the right direction, please?

Thanks Vance, I saw that of course.  Those are the instructions for entering settings, but it doesn't say how to set up defaults, and everything else in Sytist has an option to set defaults.  I'd like my default height to be 685px (making a roughly 2x3 horizontal image size for the billboards, which are 1024 px wide for these purposes).  I'd like my billboards to be within the page, and I'd like zoom in zoom out automatically enabled.

My studio does billboards for every gallery, and I'd like them all to be the same.

Anyway, that's why I'm looking for a way to set defaults.

If anyone else is looking for this, I hardcoded the values into /sy-inc/billboard.php; /sy-inc/billboard-recent.php; and for placement of billboard, /sy-main.php.  Probably not the approved method, so I won't share the code here.

Tim may be able to give you CSS code, but i am not sure this is hard coded or not. So what i would do is create a section/page with how you want it to look and save it as a theme/template.

There are no default settings for billboards.
