Slide Information  

Slide captions may include special insertions which will be replaced with actual information during the slide show. For example, if you want to display the slide image file name in some place inside the caption, insert the following text: {SlideInfo: FileName}.

Slide Information

Here's the list of all available SlideInfo insertions:

{SlideInfo: FileName} Slide image file name with extension
{SlideInfo: FileNameWoExt} Slide image file name without extension
{SlideInfo: FilePath} Slide image file path
{SlideInfo: FileSize} Slide image file size
{SlideInfo: FileDateShort} Slide image file date in the short format
{SlideInfo: FileTimeShort} Slide image file time in the short format
{SlideInfo: FileDateLong} Slide image file date in the long format
{SlideInfo: FileTimeLong} Slide image file time in the long format
{SlideInfo: SlideNumber} Slide number
{SlideInfo: SlideCount} Slide count

You can cut out a part of the insertion text placing a mask after the slide information name. For example: {SlideInfo: FileName, ?##*##}.

The mask can contain the following symbols:

? - copies the corresponding character from the source text; any other symbol in the mask (# in the example) removes the character.
* - copies all characters from the middle of the source text.

The insertion {SlideInfo: FileNameWoExt, ?##*##} will make the program display "xMyFileName" instead of the source file name "x12MyFileName56".

EXIF and IPTC information

The program allows you to use EXIF and IPTC fields in the captions. For example, {EXIF: Date/Time Original} will be replaced with the actual date/time placed to the JPEG file by your digital photo camera. Some image processing software (for example Photoshop) adds IPTC tags to JPEG images. For example you can use {IPTC: Caption} to display IPTC captions. You can place multiple EXIF and IPTC fields to your captions alternating them with your own text.

  • Use the Tools | EXIF Inspector menu to find out all EXIF and IPTC fields placed in your JPEG image files.
  • If you want to use the same caption for all your slides in the current project, select all slides by the SlideShow | Select All menu (or press Ctrl+A) and use the SlideShow | Slide Caption menu or the same item from the right-click popup menu.
  • If you create output executable slide shows using the Resize slide images option, MySlideShow removes EXIF and IPTC information from output slide images.
