    Digital Signange (Slideshow)

    I am looking for a piece of software that can be used to dynamically display all images within a folder. The software must start automatically at logon and be able to detect when images are added or removed. A Full-screen option is a must.

    I am aware that the image view has this capability, but I need something a bit more...

    To fully replace our (severely outdated) custom Windows software, the software should also display the date/time, and provide a real-time RSS feeder, but this is not critical.

    Thanks in advance!
