Slideshow

The Slideshow app lets you select a folder in your image catalog. It will flip through all images in the selected folder with the selected interval.

This app is perfectly suited to show the content of multi page PDF documents; simply upload the multi page PDF document in the image catalog and select the newly created folder (the path of the catalog will automatically be placed into the sub-folder that is created to contain the images of the pages of the PDF document). The slideshow will then automatically show the pages in the right order.

Slideshow

You can drag the app to the desired size. Images will always be fitted into this app's outline. So this way you're free to mix landscape and portrait pictures and keep them within the necessary bounds.

Properties

You can configure the app using the following properties:

Property Explanation
Show images from folder The name of the folder from which images are played.
Time per image (sec) The number of seconds an image is shown before flipping through to the next. This does not apply to videos: those always play 'till the end. This field is only shown when an image folder is selected.
...and/or show videos from folder The name of the folder from which videos are played.
Video determines this page's playback duration Enabling this option will make a playlist automatically advance to the next page when the video ends during playback. This way you don't have to specify an exact playback duration for this page in the playlist editor. This control is only shown if a video folder is selected and no image folder is selected
Volume If you like to include audio, simply set the appropriate playback volume.
Playback order Select the order in which you like the media to be played. If you selected to show both images and videos, then this playback order applies to the joint set of images and videos.
Border size If you like a border around your image, select the desired size.
Border color Pick the border color of your choice. Also see our tips section.
Transition animation Set the animation for the transition between images: none (instant transition), fade, rotate horizontally or rotate vertically.
Style Add a nice little touch to your image with some shadow effects. Try them to see which one you like.
Skip page when this app is empty When enabled, the page this app is on will be skipped during playback when this app has no data to show.

And finally there are a number of generic app properties that you can configure that you'll find on many other elements as well.
