I have iPhoto09. I want to find a Mac program that will select from a list of slideshows and/or albums and play them randomly. I don't want to show just one slideshow continuously or just show one slideshow and then the program stops. I want it to randomly select them from a que.
For example - let's say I have two folders - one folder is called BESTPICTURES, the other folder is WORSTPICTURES. Inside the folder BESTPICTURES are 3 files ( Flowers, Animals, Mountains ) Inside WORSTPICTURES are another 3 files ( Junkyards, Landfills, and Dumpsters).
I want a photo or slideshow presentation program that will first RANDOMLY select either the BESTPICTURES or WORSTPICTURES main folder. Then I want the program to RANDOMLY select one of the files from whichever main folder it picked to start the show. Let's say it picked BESTPICTURES and now I want it to RANDOMLY select among the files: Flowers, Animals, Mountains until all 3 files have been selected and shown.
When it goes through all the pictures in the BESTPICTURE folder then I want it to go to WORSTPICTURES and again RANDOMLY select one of its files: Landfills, Junkyards, or Dumpsters - and then another one of the files and then the other until all 3 of those files in the folder WORSTPICTURES have been displayed.
Then I want it to loop and begin again - continuously - perhaps the second time around randomly picking WORSTPICTURES as its first folder and then again various random selections from among its files.
I want to set up an iMac monitor on the wall and turn it into a constant digital photo album. But I can't find a 3rd party presentation program that will queue up a bunch of folders with files and go through them randomly. I don't just want all the pictures tossed into one grabbag. I want to preserve a themes element and have the program select from the various themes in a highly random fashion. Does anything like this exist?
