    Could someone download and test the attached copy of the app? It is supposed to fade out at the end of an image's display time, then fade in the new one.

    For some odd reason WPF apps seem to randomly malfunction on my dev machine, so external input on whether it does what it is supposed to would be much appreciated.

    First photo comes up then fades nicely but fades to white. White background stays for 10 seconds and then onto next picture. Repeats

    Drat. Its being very irritating. What its doing is showing a pic, triggering the fade, instantly loading the new pic, fading it down, displaying the now new image with 0 opacity, then repeating in reverse.

    Need to stop it instantly loading the new pic when the fade is running.

    Ok. Got fading working now. It now, by default, fades to black then fades to the new image.

    To disable the fade, you have to specify a 3rd command line argument as such:

    lzslideshow 10 600 0

    So, the values are now in seconds, and the zero is for turning off fading.

    New version now available here - Localzuk

    I dont suppose you have Adobe CS4?

    Encore CS4 slideshow function is;

    1) easy to use
    2) quick to setup
    3) looks very professional (a simply click in the 'pan and zoom' selection box and it really brings the slideshow to life)

    I know its not a free suggestion, but i'll put it out there all the same.

    Is it dynamic? ie. can it run automatically on computer start-up, with whatever images are in the folder that day?

    Now that's useful!

    Instead of staff bugging me to change the powerpoint running in Reception and the dining room, I'll run this from a folder on the staff shared area and they can put the photos/slides in themselves

    Indeed. I'm planning further things with it also - video support, audio support (ie. music playing whilst it is running) and possibly something like HTML support.

    Interesting idea. I want to keep the 'setup' part as simple as possible (ie. I don't really want to have a 'setup' tool, instead everything should just be stuck in a folder, and read in.), so that would be a small challenge to do I think.

    Are there any system requirements that you're aware of? It's running great on my (decent) laptop and (more than decent) desktop machine, but crashing out on the (old and slightly decrepid Duron 1.1GHz with 256MB Ram and an ATI Radeon7000 Video card - on XP SP2) machine that runs the powerpoint display. Not a huge problem as we'll be replacing it soon anyway - but if there's something I need to install on it to get it to work I'll do it. Report of crash taken from application log is attached if that helps...

    The only requirement I know of that it has is that it needs the .Net 3.5 framework. Also, the fader will use a bit of resources, so that 1.1Ghz machine may be a little low.

    Hi,

    This is exactly what I am looking for.

    Any chance of a link to download?

    Cheers

    I'm afraid that I no longer have this, as it was the victim of mistaken deletion since 2010. One of the people here who downloaded it might still have a copy though?

    Oh dear!! :-( sorry to hear.

    It would be great if someone does have a copy. I've been searching for a solution for hours and yours sounds perfect.
