pgSlideShow

pgSlideShow is an image slideshow application written in Python using pygame. It recursively searches a given directory for image files, and then displays them in Fullscreen mode. Images are currently resized to fit the screen, so some pixelization may occur.

Note: this code aims for simplicity over performance. The inital search for image files is slow and probably takes up more memory than it should.

Requirements

You need to have pygame installed and on your python path, and it needs to have been built with with full image support, otherwise it will not be able to load most image formats. See [the pygame.image](http://www.pygame.org/docs/ref/image.html) docs.

Usage

This is a command-line application. To run it, type the following command, specifying the path to the directory in which your images are located.

If no directory is given, pgSlideShow will recursively search for images in the directory from which it is run.

python src/pgSlideShow.py [directory]

This also supports a couple of command-line flags. Run pgSlidShow.py -h for more details.

History

This was written back in 2007 when I first started tinkering with pygame. See this blog post.
