Some Safari users are experiencing download problems, though most are not.

If you see a screen full of garbled text when attempting to download, use the back button and option-click the link to force saving to disk.

I still prefer the older version that runs in classic environment. All you had to do was press the tab button and could set the tome and you had a dissolve option which was a nice feature. I have found no such feature on this version which is disappointing.

This has most of the features of QuickShow, with one glaring exception: for some reason high resolution files are not resized to fill the screen, but instead are displayed at actual size. Fine if you like looking at postage stamps, but not much good as a slide show for photos at anything over 75dpi. Converting everything to screen resolution isn't always desirable...

GraphicConverter's slide show gives you more options, including automatically resizing pictures to fill the screen, displaying name and path, and QuickTime transitions. I'm afraid this software fails to fill a hole that doesn't really exist anyway.

The undersized high-ppi images were a relic of a feature from NeXT, and it's been worked around in version 1.0.5.

it'll be cumbersome and too long for user to: 1. open images folder, 2. drop app into ther, 3. double-click on app to play show Additionally, if I have several folders from which i want to play shows, i'd have to either move the app from folder to folder or have copies of the app in each of them... not good.

wouldn't it be easier to have user drop folder of images onto the app to initiate slideshow?

As the description mentions, QuickSlides was born as a drop-in replacement for KPT QuickShow LT. What you find cumbersome about QuickSlides is exactly what many people find useful and are accustomed to about QuickShow.

Additional modes of operation, like dragging and dropping folders onto the application, are planned for future releases.

Excellent - does what it says, suits me as I keep photos in folders rather than iphoto.
