QuickSlide is a little app that takes the standard slide show further with great features to let you easily show off all your photos: random lists that can be stopped at any point and re-started where you left off, a novel way to make use of multiple monitors and automatically scan folders within folders.
It's handy auto-start feature means you can have a new slide show up and running in around 3 mouse clicks. Or just get it to go straight to the last show when you open the application up!
Simply select one or more folders and QuickSlide will scan through them - as well as all the subfolders. QS then creates a shuffled list of the picture files that you want. You can filter for jpegs, png's, tiff's; in fact, you can specify any type of picture file including camera RAWs.
The randomised list is remembered between application uses and QuickSlide will store where it left off - so you can pick up the show without watching the same photos as last time.
You can save show lists and loading one back in is as simple as dragging and dropping onto the application window. If you've got more than one monitor then QS will move the pictures between each one. And you can use your Apple Remote to control the show.
This version is re-written on Mac OS 10.7 only. It may work on 10.6 as the code used is not 'depreciated' in 10.7 but no guarantee can be given.
Scan and shuffle code has been modified to take better advantage of multi-threading.
Tweaks have been made for speed when navigating between pictures. Please note that QuickSlide 'asks' the OS for a certain picture and then waits for the data to come back to display it. It is not intended as a way for the user to easily navigate through a folder of pictures as with Finder or even Preview. Camera raw files or picture files pulled from an external drive can take longer to be offered up.
Sounds can now be muted in preferences.
