Thumbnails and scrolling keeps your Photo slideshow rolling

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:

  • 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.
