Create a Slideshow

Use Kuickshow or gThumb to turn a directory of photos into a slideshow.

For just about every vacation, there is a vacation slide presentation. After all, most people don’t just take vacation pictures for themselves, they take them for their friends and family to see as well. In the past, to set up a slide presentation you had to take your film to get developed into slides, and then arrange them into your slide projector. Today with a digital camera, you can quickly, easily, and inexpensively set up a slideshow with open source tools.

There are a number of open source slideshow tools, but for the purposes of this hack I discuss two: KuickShow and gThumb. These slideshow programs are parts of the GNOME and KDE desktop environments respectively, but you can run them on either environment. In addition, one of the programs most likely will be prepackaged by most major Linux distributions.
