    Hello,

    Most of space you see above your slider is due to how you’ve set up the items above it. You’ll get rid of a lot of space by (1) removing the “alignnone” class from your image’s HTML and (2) not putting the images in paragraph tags (or unchecking the box that says “Apply automatic WordPress formatting” if this is a raw content input). — If this doesn’t make sense, feel free to give me some more info about how you’ve setup that top bar of images and I can be more specific about these two items.

    And then if you’d like to actually tone down more space between elements of the bulder, this is where you’ll make your CSS customizations from your Child theme.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    For example —

    .element { padding: 0; }
    #content { padding: 0; }

    There are several items with margin and padding, and that’s why it’s a great idea to start learning how to use one of these tools to quickly scan over everything and see what exactly you want to alter, and what the best approach is.

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
