Slideshow ACDSee

Post by burbujita2022 »

I keep using ACDSee 3.1 (from the 1990s) because of its UNIQUE slideshow feature, when in a folder (any folder) it has on its right click menu an option to run a slideshow on the folder or a slideshow recursive (any subfolders within any folder)
If XnView had the same feature, it would be the perfect viewer, I'd even pay for it. Not any version of ACDSee has it, only version 3.1, the slideshow on XnView is rather convoluted, useless and time consuming, every other image viewer lacks this great feature, including all versions of ACDSee form v4.0 until the current ACDSee 2022.
I am sure so many would love this extraordinarily convenient feature, putting XnView above any other image viewer instantly.
Imagine this feature coupled with XnView's crop capability!

Well…
You can choose a folder, and then "show files in subfolder", and then do a slideshow. That essentially does the same thing.
That said, it's still not nearly as smooth as ACDSee 3.1. Not when it comes to slideshows, nor anything else.

I'd love to see an updated version of ACDSee 3.1, with updated support for image formats (and archive formats. XnViewMP also doesn't support browsing them, but that is apparently now added in the beta), unicode-filename support, and updated higher quality zoom.
If a program like that existed, I would immediately get it, as my main image viewer!
Right now I use ACDSee 3.1 (despite its age) for that, on my desktop, and Phototonic (despite some flaws) on my Laptop running Linux.
…with XnView as a image organizer/searcher.
It's too slow, heavy, and complicated, to be suited to the role of main image viewer.

so the same as selecting all files in the folder and starting slideshow with default settings?

…or a quick slideshow.
(I was initially rather confused, by the slideshow dialogue, until I understood the distinction between "slideshow" and "quick slideshow", in XnView, and how to start a quick slideshow)

Hi,

Answering to myself...

To show images with the Quick Slideshow, select them in the Thumbnail panel (by holding down Ctrl
while clicking on them), press Enter to show the first in View mode, then click the Quick
Slideshow button.
