How to use gPhotoShow to build a digital picture frame - Part 3
I decided to used gPhotoShow as slideshow maker instead of screen saver. The reason is that on Windows 10 when monitor is turned off (by windows power management) the screen saver is killed but I want to keep gPhotoShow running so I can use the MonitorOn/off plugin to turn on the monitor on again in the morning. In addition you don't have to wait for the screen saver timeout, the slideshow can start as soon as the computer starts.
Here are the settings I changed from defaults
Images: added the directory where pictures are stored. I also added a directory on our NAS but for now I am not going to use it. Image display time is set to 1 minute
Images -> Display Options: set automatic panoramic image detection
Images -> Information: enable display of date/time and changes text size
Images -> Transitions: Set DirectX transitions and disabled everything but "Dissolve"
File Options: Enabled background files list synchronization and set to repeat every 60 minutes
Panoramic Images: set Scroll duration to 60 seconds
System Settings: Set the startup delay to 10 seconds then click on "Auto Start this slideshow". In this way gPhotoShow (an the slideshow) will automatically start when computer starts.
