4.Using Picture Folders
By default, this is shown by the Dynamic Pictures pane.
Start a new presentation or open an existing presentation.
First of all, insert a normal picture on your slide. Click to open the Insert menu option, and click the Pictures button.
Browse to any picture and put that picture on your slide. This picture will not be shown at all, but this is just a placeholder or starting point for your picture slider later on.
With that picture selected, click the Add button from the My Pictures group.
Browse to the folder that contains the pictures that you want to use in your picture frame and click OK.
This folder is now added to the Dynamic Pictures’ folder playlist.
The first image of the selected folder is place in your selected picture placeholder. Use the Add button to add more folders to it.
Use the Edit button to replace an existing folder with another folder. Or use the Delete button to drop a folder from the My Pictures playlist.
At the Folder options, choose to play all of the folders from the playlist, or choose to play all folders and its subfolders.
With the Display sequence you can choose to play the pictures in a fixed or random sequence.
In the Orientation options, you can choose to use landscape pictures only, or portrait pictures only. This option is there to guarantee the look of your design. If your design counts on displaying portrait pictures only, then check this option for portrait orientation images only.
And finally you can use set the time to display a picture individually before moving to the next picture of the picture carrousel.
Run the slideshow and Dynamic Pictures will start displaying the picture at your picture placeholder. Drop new images into that folder, or remove picture. The picture slider will update its playlist dynamically.
