①Make normal slick slider

To make it easy, we will make normal slick slider first and make changes.

<div class="slider">   
    <div><img src="./img/slider_img01.jpg"></div>
    <div><img src="./img/slider_img02.jpg"></div>   
    <div><img src="./img/slider_img03.jpg"></div>
</div>

<style>
    /*------ slider width ------*/
    .slider{
        width:70%;
        margin:0 auto;
    }

    /*------ slider image ------*/
    .slider img{
        width:100%;
    }
  
    /*-------- height ----------*/
    .slider .slick-slide{
        height:auto!important;
    }

    /*--------- arrows ---------*/
    .slick-next{ right:0!important; }
    .slick-prev{ left:0!important; }
    .slick-arrow{ z-index:2!important; }
</style>

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/slick-carousel/1.9.0/slick.css"/>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/slick-carousel/1.9.0/slick-theme.css">
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/slick-carousel/1.9.0/slick.min.js"></script>

<script>
    $('.slider').slick({
        autoplay: true,       //autoplay
        autoplaySpeed: 2000,  //autoplay speed
        speed: 800,           //slide speed
        dots: true,           //dots below slide
        arrows: true,         //arrows both sides of slide
        infinite: true,       //loop infinitely
    });
</script>

③Replace arrows with preferred image

3rd and 4th line is making width and height 100%.(to make adjustment easy)
5th~7th line is showing arrows.
11th and 16th line is replacing arrows with preferred image.

.slick-arrow:before{
    content:""!important;
    width: 100%!important;
    height: 100%!important;
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
}

.slick-next:before{
    background: url(img/arrow_r.png)!important;
    background-size: contain!important;
}

.slick-prev:before{
    background: url(img/arrow_l.png)!important;
    background-size: contain!important;
}





④Adjust size and position of arrows

3rd and 4th line is adjusting size and 8th and 12th is adjusting position.

.slick-arrow{
    z-index:2!important;
    width:60px!important;
    height:60px!important;
}

.slick-next{
    right:-30px!important;
}

.slick-prev{
    left:-30px!important;
}







⑤Cancel out translucent of arrows

The translucent of arrows is caused by opacity: 0.75 with default setting.
So overwrite css style like below.

.slick-arrow:before{
    opacity:1!important;
}
