This presentation was created by putting a collection of text, picture, and sound files in a folder, then dropping that folder (or any file in that folder) on the script. All script defaults were accepted.
The slide show proceeds in name-sorted order, so you may want to force your desired order by prefacing your file names with numbers. A "slide" will be created for every group of files with identical base names. For example, this presentation had the following source files:
0010_hello.gif, 0010_hello.txt, 0010_hello.wav, 0020_pagetwo.txt, 0020_pagetwo.wav, 0030_goodbye.gif, 0030_goodbye.txt
To create this particular "slide" in the presentation, the script found the three identically-named files 0010_hello.gif, 0010_hello.txt, and 0010_hello.wav. Then it created a "slide" that incorporated those three elements.
It isn't necessary to have muliple related files. A "slide" would be created for ANY combination of text, picture or sound files. The next two slides in this presentation will show what happens if you don't have a picture or sound file. I'll give you a clue: The script just adapts and builds a slide with whatever is available!
