Getting titles (filenames) to display in preview/slideshow


G

Guest

I downloaded photos from camera to a My Pictures folder on my desktop, giving
each photo a unique caption.
The captions display when running a preview or slideshow on my desktop.

I made a CD of the folder, loaded it into my laptop, observed that the
titles were retained.

But, if I run a preview or a slideshow on the laptop, the captions don't
display.
WHY? How to fix?

Far less vital, is there a way to change the 5 second span between photos in
a slideshow?

===============================
It depends on the viewer you are using.

If you use the freeware IrfanView or FastStone
Image Viewer you can choose to show file names
and other options in your slideshow.

Download Irfanview

(get the plug-ins too)

Since you are in this ng I'm guessing you
are running Windows XP?

Simple solution....is that you can pause the
slide show by pressing your spacebar and
then advance - reverse your image display
with your arrow keys.

Or...download and install TweakUI. It has
an option that allows the user to adjust the
slideshow timeout.

Just open TweakUI and go to...Explorer /
Slide Show...(1000 = 1 second)

Windows XP PowerToys / free download

(Itanium version is only for 64-bit systems)

More options:

This requires a registry edit........
I would suggest that you carefully read the
following article first before proceeding:

Information About Editing the Registry
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=256986#Topic2

There's a script you can download from the
following site that will increase the timeout
to 10 seconds...scroll down to #81.

Also, the following info was previously posted
by David Shiflet:

The value of the number is represented in milliseconds
between image changes:
1000 = 1 second, 5000 = 5 seconds, 10000=10 seconds,
etc. To modify my script change the time accordingly.

In order to change the slideshow timing, open regedit
and go to the following key.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellImageView]

Create a DWORD named "Timeout", with the value the
number of millseconds between image changes (1000
(Dec) = 1 second, 5000 = 5 seconds)

Note that the time of actually changing the image is not
included, so 1000 =1 second + time to decode the image

If you open the script from Kelly's site in notepad, you
should be able to use David's instructions to change
the timeout to anything you require.

Good luck....

My desktop doesn't have these programs, and displays the title/caption of
each photo (whether in preview or slideshow mode) quite well.

Why do I need another application for my laptop but not the desktop?

I'm sure there must be some setting of options...et al...on the laptop that
differs ever so slightly from that of the desktop. I'm just stumped what that
easy fix is.

==================================
I'm not saying you *need* anything I
just offered some information.

Which viewer are you using and does
your laptop have the same exact one?

Are both computers running the same
exact operating system?

Really liked FastStone Image Viewer. Is there an Android APP that will display a slideshow along with the file title of each picture?
