Editors' Review

If you enjoy customizing your desktop with your own images -- or need an easy way to create a slideshow for a presentation, party, or other event -- try gPhotoShow. This easy-to-use screensaver makes it simple to display your images in a customizable slideshow format. It's fun for home use, but professional enough for business, too.

gPhotoShow installs just like any other screensaver and is accessed through the Windows Display Properties menu. The program's settings interface is tabbed and easy to navigate, with options for selecting multiple image directories, setting the delay between images and transition speed, setting background colors, and more. The program can also play music or other audio files, and we loved that both the images and audio can be set to play randomly or in order. There are 31 transition effects, and you can enable and disable them via check boxes. The program also lets you pause and restart the slideshow, as well as move back and forth between images. Built-in tool tips explain each of gPhotoShow's features, but not much explanation was required; the program is quite easy to figure out, and we had a great-looking slideshow up and running in a matter of minutes. Overall, gPhotoShow didn't wow us with any particularly new or innovative features, but if you need a straightforward way to create a screensaver slideshow, we think this is a great option. It's easy to use but also has plenty of options for customizing and personalizing the display.

gPhotoShow installs and uninstalls without issues.

"Had great hopes"

August 31, 2013  |  By boxturtle4

2013-08-31 12:14:49  |  By boxturtle4

 |  Version: gPhotoShow 1.7

Pros

Lots of features and transition effects.

Cons

Everything worked fine except I lost a lot of picture quality when I used this program which I found unacceptable.

Summary

I was looking for a program that I could have a little more options with instead of the plain windows program. gPhotoShow worked for adjustability but fell short in picture quality.

"Overall user unfriendly application"

May 07, 2013  |  By adirtyhippieee

2013-05-07 01:06:25  |  By adirtyhippieee

 |  Version: gPhotoShow 1.7

Pros

Don't have any pros.

Cons

My initial configuration process left the program unusable. The program uninstall left both registry AND file/directory detrius behind. My recommendation is to be sure to have Advanced Uninstaller Pro (freeware) installed prior to installing this POC.

Broken. Broken. Broken.

"Worthy replacement for great Vista built-in screensaver"

March 10, 2012  |  By daveburch235

2012-03-10 18:45:43  |  By daveburch235

 |  Version: gPhotoShow 1.6.3

Pros

Works perfectly in Windows 7 x64. Has all the great features of the VIsta built-in slideshow, like paging forward and backward and locking the current picture. A new feature I like is the option to display the file name at customizable font size. A feature restored from XP but lost in VIsta is setting the time for each picture to be displayed.

Cons

None that I have found.

Summary

The built-in Windows slideshow screensaver reached its highest development in Windows Vista before it was trashed in Windows 7. After using gPhotoShow for a week, I have concluded that it works as well, as all the features I found useful, as the Vista screensaver. No problems at all.
