The slideshow is a convenient way to present images to people in a simple, uncluttered way. It is also a useful way to get a quick overview of a set of images and for selecting the best images from a shoot using the tagging options (described in more detail below).


The slideshow mode can be entered from main view or from one of the thumbnail views. If it is run from main view the slideshow will display all of the images in the current folder starting with the first image. If slideshow is entered from one of the thumbnail views it will only display the currently selected images. A menu of the available options can be displayed by right clicking the mouse in the slideshow window.


The slideshow window fills the display and by default has a black background. Images are resized to fit the screen and there is an optional caption displayed above or below the image. A small blue tick mark is displayed if the image is tagged.


When the slideshow is started it will automatically advance to the next image using the currently selected time interval. The slideshow can be paused by typing Ctrl+S or by using cursor keys to select the next or previous image. Press the Esc key to exit slideshow mode or press the right mouse button to display a menu of options.


Images can be rotated and tagged using the menu options or keyboard shortcuts.


If the option to monitor the folder for changes is selected in Preferences the slideshow will be updated automatically when images are added, deleted or modified in the current folder. This is useful for applications such as event photography where a slideshow is left running and is automatically updated to show new images as they are added.


The mouse cursor will automatically disappear if the mouse is not moved for 1 or 2 seconds. Simply move the mouse to make the cursor reappear.
