OT: Need a fast slideshow

Julius_ wrote on 11/6/2015, 4:25 PM
Hi,

In a rush...I need a slideshow that can show pics at 2 seconds each...I thought windows photo slide show (default slide show icon in the folder) would be sufficient but I can only select slow, med and fast....and fast is at 4 secs. This is a simple slide show of only jpg 100 images...anything free out there (downloaded a few but can't adjust time)...seems soo simple..thanks!

Google "Faststone Image Viewer" to see if that will do what you need. It will do a slide show and I believe you can set the duration.

+1 john dennis - what could be more easy than to use Vegas for your project, and adding or removing as many pic's as you like.....in a flash!

Not free but for $9.95 USD VASST StillMotion will do exactly what you want.



In the interest of "full disclosure" I work at VASST and wrote StillMotion. ;-)

I have Ultimate S Pro, and they also have a slide show feature which would get the job done. But for $9.95 you can't go wrong with Still Motion.

How is this slideshow being presented? I just gave a photo talk a few evenings ago using Vegas. I never rendered, but instead connected a projector as the secondary display. I put all the images, titles, transitions, & music on the timeline and simply "previewed" to the projector. Not only did this let me make last minute changes in moments, but i was also able to easily pause, go back, jump around, etc.

The Wii will show all images in a slideshow & play the mp3 you specify.

Thanks...I'll be at a trade show in a couple of weeks and I've been given some pics to play back from a "laptop" connected to a 24" screen...I don't want to get stuck if they decide to give me more pics (or remove some) depending on how the event is going. I can bring my laptop but it just complicates things. I look at what John has offered.

@Julius

IMHO Vegas is really overkill for what you want to do. I suspect that most everyone thought you wanted to prepare your slideshow beforehand and simply "play" it. What you really want to do is simply have images in a folder which can easily be changed (add or delete images) and then create a slideshow in real time? If such is the case, there are lots of freeware options that will do this. Probably, the best known is Irfanview http://www.irfanview.com/. It shoud be able to do exactly what you want. If this doesn't suit you, there are lots of options. Just search.

Thank you wwaaq!!!
This is exactly what I was looking for.

Sorry in the rush of these I didn't explain myself very well... I had already searched and downloaded about 2-3 freeware slideshow programs, but none of them was I able to adjust the time..and you know when downloading free stuff you sometimes get extra things installed that you have to uninstalled....so that's why I posted here to see if I can save time and my pc of some programs that are worthy....and I like IrfanView!
