I have a couple of images in a folder and I would like to easily browse through them at my own pace in Fullscreen.

Now I'm using Windows Photo Gallery but when i "play slide show" it keeps moving to the next image (which is not what I want).

I only want to move to the next image "at my own pace".

What solutions are there?


Windows Vista Home Premium sp2

Using the built in picture viewer in Windows, one thing should be able to do while in fullscreen is right-click the image and you should then be able to change the slideshow speed to slow. (Works on my Win7, I expect Vista to be similar)

After that the and arrow keys should allow you to move backwards and forwards between images.

Other than that you may have to download another image viewer such as Irfanview or xnview, I believe they both have similar options for fullscreen viewing and much more adjustable slideshow "speeds".

cool, there's a pause option. btw do you have any idea what's the shuffle for? – Pacerier Aug 29 '11 at 22:48
The shuffle option would be to randomly cycle through the images in that directory, akin to the shuffle on your mp3 player. – Mokubai Aug 29 '11 at 22:55
