Display options

Images can be displayed in color or in black and white. To toggle between color and black and white display type Ctrl+W or right click the mouse and select "Black and White" from the menu.


High quality mode sharpens the image before displaying it (the original image isn't affected). This gives a sharp clear image which is a good indication of how the image will look after it has been enhanced in an image editor such as Photoshop.


Select "View Actual Image..." to display the image full size in a separate window. This window may take several seconds to load if the image is a raw file as the raw image data has to be converted before it can be displayed. The image can then be zoomed and panned to examine it in more detail.


The image caption can be displayed above or below the image or disabled by right clicking the mouse and selecting the appropriate option from the menu.


The caption and other display attributes such as frames can be edited by running the slideshow and then right clicking the mouse and selecting "Slideshow display options..." from the menu. The dialog below will be displayed:




The slideshow caption is defined by a format string which uses tokens to display information about the current image. Most of the tokens available to the HTML generator can be used in the slideshow caption (please see HTML Tokens page for a complete list of the tokens). The default format string is: @dir@@file@ [@imageNumber@ of @numberOfImages@]

This displays the directory and filename of the image followed by the image number and the total number of images in the slideshow.


Additional information extracted from the shooting data in the image can be added by using the appropriate tokens.  For example the following format string would display the image filename with the date the image was taken and a summary of the camera settings on separate lines:


@file@ [@imageNumber@ of @numberOfImages@]\n@date@\n@model@, @shutter@sec @ f@aperture@, ISO @iso@


This would produce a three line caption like:

GR5F5159.CR2 [9 of 74]

12 May 2006

Canon EOS-1D Mark II, 1/200sec @ f5.6, ISO 200


The font type, style and color can also be selected by clicking on the "..." buttons in the dialog.


The slideshow background color and an image file to use to frame the image can be selected in the "Background" section of the dialog. Click on the "..." button after the background color box to define a new background color.

When picture frames are enabled you can select a frame by clicking on the "..." button to the right of the text box showing the current frame name. A selection of frames can be found in the "frames" folder where BreezeBrowser Pro is installed. Please see the section on Guidelines for creating border images for information on how to define your own picture frames.
