    Photo App - Slideshow


    Use the Windows 8 standard Photo App.

    There is a slideshow inside, your photos will be displayed randomly.
    Can you choose a specific order to play the pictures in the slideshow? How?

    It randomly plays the slideshow. I suggest you put all the 'specific' photos into their own folder and play the slideshow featuring those photos.

    Faststone is another really good program for doing slide shows along with some other really great features. Good luck. . .

    Once you have the photos in a directory, how do you determine the order. I have appended 3 digits to the beginning and 4 digits to the end. It keeps showing them based on the last four digits of the original file name...DSC2225 is always followed by DSC2226.

    I make programmes in VB6 and I made a picture viewer many years ago that will show BMP, GIF, JPG, WMF, CUR and ICO files. It also has a slideshow feature that you can show hundreds of picture which you can set to show for 1 to 5 seconds each one.
