    I need software that can play a number of jpg-pictures in short sequence (0.5 - 2sec), ideally with some cross-fading efx to soften transitions. a slideshow, basically.
    the pics will be updated regularly and the software should have no problems with that but just keep looping over that directory...
    any ideas?

    edit
    even better would be I could start up that sw and it would start looping through the directory immediately...

    iphoto can make slideshows, as well keynote. iPhoto came with your computer, why have you trashed it?

    You could either go to the Mac App Store and download it. It may be free since iLife comes with the computer, but it might not depending on when you bought the computer. Or, I think the apple stores may still have box sets you can buy.

    thanks! am downloading it right now, dead slow connection though...
    hey do i understand right that when installing sw via appstore you don't get a installable image (.dmg, .pkg) anymore?

    ken burns effect?

    wtf? how do i get rid of it? i can't have my pics moving about, it messes up the entire animation (weather sat pics)
    2008 iphoto seems to have had the option to switch the thing off
