Here is a list of steps you might want to take before using the app
Supporting more media types
First, make sure you have installed ImageMagick and its imagick PECL extension. Next add a few new entries to your config/config.php configuration file.
'enabledPreviewProviders' => array ( 0 => 'OC\\Preview\\PNG', 1 => 'OC\\Preview\\JPEG', 2 => 'OC\\Preview\\GIF', 11 => 'OC\\Preview\\Illustrator', 12 => 'OC\\Preview\\Postscript', 13 => 'OC\\Preview\\Photoshop', 14 => 'OC\\Preview\\TIFF' ),
Look at the sample configuration (config.sample.php) in your config folder if you need more information about how the config file works. That's it. You should be able to see more media types in your slideshows and galleries as soon as you've installed the app.
