Welcome, tt. But I can see I've made an error.
@stengerscript - The Gallery slideshow setting works a little differently than the other Gallery types.
You don't need to concern yourself with the Image Carousel, because when you insert a Gallery by selecting the Slideshow type Gallery, your images will be displayed in the viewer that is embedded in your Post or Page.

If by chance you are talking about the Slider which is a part of the "Ever After" theme you are using, then please read these instructions from the theme's Showcase page:
Featured Post Slider
Featuring posts in a slider on your home page is easy. You just need sticky posts with Featured Images. Every sticky post you have (up to ten posts) that has a Featured Image (at least 850 pixels wide, 400pixels height) attached will show up in the scrolling marquee.
