This application presents a slideshow of your pictures. It searches for the image files in your "My Documents\My Pictures" directory or your home directory. The images are displayed in random order. A new image is selected every 60 seconds. Pressing the spacebar skips to the next image immediately.


You may use this application under the terms of the Open Source Academic Free License version 3.0. The source code is available from the CroftSoft Code Library.


In addition to using the applet at the top of this webpage, you can install the program as a desktop application by clicking on this link: slideshow.jnlp

If it does not install, check that you have Java installed first, version 6 or above.


The current default setting is to switch to another image every 60 seconds. A future feature will let you change the display time. In the meantime, keep in mind that you can advance to the next image immediately by pressing the spacebar.

Another future feature will be to toggle on a display of the image filename. In the meantime, you can view the filename of the most recent image displayed in the debugging output of the Java console.
