Slideshow Settings

On this page:

This is where you find settings that are specific to a single slideshow. To open the Settings sheet, select Settings… from the Slideshow menu. Settings are grouped into different categories:

Settings

Stage Format
This selects the stage aspect ratio. You can choose from several commonly used formats: 16:9, 3:2, 4:3, and 1:1. If you need a different format, then select Custom and enter the pixel dimensions for your slideshow.

Background Color
Select the background color that will be displayed below all slide layers. This color will also be visible during some transitions, e.g. Fade, Flip, Cube, etc.

*This color is constant for the duration of the slideshow. If you need a different background color for a few slides, then prepare a PNG image file containing that color and use that as the bottom-most layer.

Resize Behavior
This setting determines how layer are resized when the aspect ratio of the stage format changes. There are several options:

  • None: Layers are not resized at all
  • Crop: Layers will be resize to completely fill the new stage format, making sure that stage background is not visible. That means that parts of layer content might be cropped at the Stage edges.
  • Letterbox: If necessary layers are scaled down so that all layer content is visible. That might lead to bars of the stage background color being visible at the top & bottom or left & right edges of the Stage.

Playback
By checking “Endless Loop” the slideshow will play in an endless loop until manually stopped by clicking the stop button in the toolbar, by pressing the ESC key, or the selecting Stop from the Play menu.

*Endlessly looping slideshows are useful in unattended kiosk installations.

Background Image
The optional background image will be shown below all slide layers. It remains the same for the duration of the slideshow and cannot be animated.

Watermark Image
The optional watermark image will be shown above all slide layers. It remains the same for the duration of the slideshow and cannot be animated. You can choose to make the watermark transparent by reducing the opacity.

💬

You can use the watermark image to apply display a branding logo or copyright notice on top of your slideshow content.
