    OK, I'm about to go insane with OSX - it's been freakin' 10 years and this POS OS does not have a decent slideshow app, something windows has had out of the box for ages now. Can someone please recommend a slideshow app for OS X that does not absolutely suck a$$? And please for the love of god, do not recommend that virus also known as iPhoto. TIA!

    I would like to be able it to show the photos at any given size (full screen, half, etc.), and at a controllable, user-set intervals.

    here is some

    So far there is Fotomagico, Photo2movie.

    The best still is the windows program Photodex Slideshow Producer, which I run under VMware Fusion on my Imac

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have not revisited fotomagico in awhile, but in the past, I hated it - extremely bloated, buggy and crashy. I'd like something that can be used fast. Fotomagico was like building a rocket just to cross the street - I'd rather hop on a skateboard and lickety-split I'm there. Fast, compact and does what I need. I'll check out Photo2movie. Man, OS X sucks at such a basic thing... there are so many more options on the windows side - what shocks me, is that this is not some super complex software, but somehow the Mac universe can't hack it.

    You should use Windows if that is what you need.
