WackyB Flickr Desktop SlideShow
WackyB's Flickr Desktop SlideShow is a new way to view your own and your friends latest flicker photos. Unlike a screen saver where you are often away from your desk when it's running, or a slideshow where you have to stop what you are doing to view; WackyB's Flickr Desktop SlideShow lets you view your latest photos and keep up to date without interrupting your work...
You can enter your own Flickr ID or the Flickr ID for whoever's photos you wish to view. Two options let you view your own photos (or the photos for the ID you enter) or your contacts photos (those that belong to the ID entered).
Use the 'Refresh Image List' button to get new images when you change the Flickr ID or change options from your own photos to your contacts.
'Clear Saved Images' empties out the image cache that WackyB Flickr Desktop SlideShow creates to speed up viewing and avoiding downloading the same image twice.
The Max Transparency level sliders control how opaque the images appear; Slider level to the left will result in very subtle fading, to the right will display a clearer image.
Slideshow Speed sets the delay between each image being shown.
Hide button closes the setup window back to the tray icon.
Exit will stop the slideshow and end the program.

Start Slideshow will begin when you first start (Ensure your firewall software is configured to allow access to download images for display).
Images will slowly fade in and out of view in a random position and traveling in a random direction. The images remain semi-transparent at all times allowing you to view your documents and applications ensuring they never block your view. You can click through the Flickr images as if they were not there so they will not get in the way of your day to day computing...
