Autoload images from a folder

Select a folder from which you want to read the images. The slideshow will load them automatically.

If you want to add some custom settings to your slides, like a link, or a title, you can do it using a TXT file. You can choose to add some parameters for each image in the folder. For this you must create a text file that has the same name as the image. For example

  • the image is called : sea.jpg
  • the text file must be called : sea.txt
