Topic: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

I know Autoviewer exists for slideshows. But, I do think there would be good value in adding a slideshow mode to Simpleviewer to allow the user the option to auto-forward through the gallery at some time interval (with pause and stop controls).

Just a thought. These are great apps.

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

I concur! This would be a nifty feature.

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

Hi,

thanks for the feedback. This is a quite common request.

The main reason I have not implemented this feature for SimpleViewer is that it would involve adding a new set of controls (play/pause) that I feel would distract from the main purpose of SimpleViewer - to display images in as simple and unobtrusive manner as possible.

Personally I don't find automatic slideshows to be very useful. Basically you are letting the computer decide when you view the next image. When given an easy way to click next, does anyone actually wait for the timer to complete? What if you are studying an interesting image and the timer decides you now have to look at the next image?

Auto slideshows do have a place in certain situations. I built AutoViewer to address these situations.

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

Thanks for the response.

1. I do like the cleanness of the current design and would hope such controls would be small, intuitive and not detract.
2. It certainly wouldn't be the default mode, but would simply exist if someone finds a good gallery and wants to maximize the page and sit back and relax, or if someone is showing a personal trip gallery to a friend sitting right there and doesn't want to sit there clicking, etc.

Anyway, "simpleviewer" is just that and serves it's purpose just fine as is.

A similar flash component with slideshow mode (default) is http://www.slideshowpro.net/.  It uses a single toggle button for play and pause with gallery browsing controls as well. Speed control in the interface could probably improve it.

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

ditto... i think the single button which toggles between play and pause would be sufficient... autoplay is such a nifty feature for lazt viwers... please reconsider adding it in. thanks

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

I'd love to get that feature too.
The Stop/Go button could have been located just before the title, to keep compatibility.

Thanks

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

I think a slideshow has its benefits too. As an extra it could be cool.
Look and do nothing, not too bad, I think. Just my 2 cents.

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

I concur -
some people enjoy slideshows - at least the ability for that.

I like the way slideshows are implemented on Picasa albums -
would be a great addition to  simpleviewer. simple + an optional!

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

Absolutely - in fact only a couple tweaks and slideshow and this gallery tool will be what i use everywhere. 3 clients wish the buttons for next and back were always visible above the image, they are for some reason offended to have anything appear on top of the images they have. ( bummer - i like the way it works now , but i'm not the client )
- putting Back - Next  above there as an optional feature and adding a slideshow  click between them would mean i can do it all in one place rather than have several treatments of the same gallery to accommodate this request. ( they are celebs and thier PR agents/Branding police are a bit of a pain )

Just bought a few seconds ago
- waiting on the SV PRO code now, looking fwd to this

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

What if we all say pretty pretty please with a cherry on top.  This might be the deal breaker for using simpleviewer on my latest project.

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

I'd love to see a slideshow feature for Simpleviewer. Some of my larger albums have more than 100 photos, so to see all the photos a user would potentially have to click 100 times... As mentioned, this could be an optional feature.

Re: Slideshow Mode for Simpleviewer

Slideshow/AutoPlay mode has been added in SimpleViewer-Pro v1.9. Pro users can use their original download link to get the latest files.

Thanks so much Felix! Haven't taken a look yet, but it sounds like what we've been waiting for.
