A few new features have been added to the slideshow view in the Images application, helpful for when viewing a collection of photos or graphics. These being 1) seeing the thumbnails of other photos from the slideshow you’re viewing, 2) scroll arrows to quickly move through a larger collection and 3) an option for continuous viewing or Auto Play, showing one photo for 10 seconds before moving onto the next.
Here’s a screenshot of the new options:
And a short review of each:
- Thumbnails: See a small preview of each photo or graphic in your slideshow.
- Scroll Arrows: Click the arrows on the right and left to go forward and backward.
- Auto Play: Have your photos automatically change from one to the next every 10 seconds, helpful to go through a larger collection without having to click on every photo.
How different solutions can benefit from the new features:
- Personal: Share from a vacation, birthday party, holiday or other event.
- Groups: Sharing group photos of everyone participating in a project or activity.
- Freelancers: Helpful for more image intensive professions, such as photographers, graphic artists, artisans, marketing professionals, researchers or travel planners.
- Small Business: Useful with marketing activities, such as sharing graphics of your logos, product or service as well as photos from company wide events, such as a holiday party.
