Creating a Slideshow

You can create a slideshow with ThumbHTML, using the tab with that name. The program will by default use images in a sub-folder called 'main' - this is the folder normally used to store the linked images. Images in this folder need to be small enough the display comfortably without scrolling on a typical browser window (I use 600 pixels). You can select the folder desired, in any case, by using the drop-down list - this will contain all sub-folder names currently existing in the present folder.

As you can see, you can also choose the interval between images, the transition time, the title, the desired filename (it will be placed in the current folder) and whether or not to include a link to the HTML pages (this option will be disabled in a file index.html does not exist in this folder).

New in version 2.2 is the ability to display extra image information (e.g. date, photo data, comments etc). This information changes with the image, of course!

Note that the page preloads all images and image data, so don't create slideshows of too many images or it will take forever to load!

You can check the 'loop' box if you want the slideshow to repeat indefinitely - the default is 'unchecked' and the slideshow will stop with the final image.

Keystoke control of slideshow

A prompt describing this is added at the bottom of each page.
