This is an extra step and you can simply skip it if you have already done it. As our goal is to create a category slider. So, it is needed to add a thumbnail and description of each category to create a professional and eye-catching category slider. 

I am showing the whole process of creating a new product category. You can edit your existing product category and add a thumbnail and description following this way. So, create a product category, click on the Categories under the product menu. It will show some fields. Now, you have to fill out these fields. There is also a field called description. You can write a short description of this category. Similarly, you can see there is also another field named thumbnail. You need to upload an image as the thumbnail for this category.

You will find this option under the GENERAL SETTINGS tab. However, you can select all categories or some specific categories as per your need. It looks like the following screen-
