Just wanted to bring up a feature I think would be a good addition to PureRef. A slideshow feature (not necessarily a -literal- slideshow :B ). Sometimes I want to just use PureRef as a wall with images to draw inspiration from, rather than purely as references, and to me a slideshow on the side works better in that aspect.

You can already focus on one particular image and then go between images with the arrow keys. Just making this function be automatized would be enough.

Not sure how much work there would need to be put into making that work, but thought I'd put the idea up here.

Thanks for the suggestion! We're not sure how this would be implemented in a good way without bloating up the functionality of PureRef but we will consider it while adding new features for an upcoming version. It should be fairly easy to implement but we need to consider if it follows the design paradigm of PureRef.
Throwing myself behind this! If it's possible to make something simple, like, 15 second, 30 second, 45 second, one minute?

I throw my figure refs on Pure boards and such a feature would be awesome for, say, daily gesture drawings.

Also if too much, a command that randomized the next selected and focused image?
I'd like to back this idea too. Current solution is to save all the images to a folder and run it in another program.
'Slideshow of selected' would be far more convenient.
I was just thinking that a feature like an automated cycling through the images / slideshow would be huge.
Select Images I'd like to cycle through, press shortcut key for "Cycle / Slideshow" (call it what you want.)

Those images now just loop through on a set period of time, which the duration itself is customizeable in the settings.

I just wanted to add my voice to this request -- my art computer is currently Linux so the current workaround is to export all images to a folder then use the GNOME file manager's slideshow feature which adds a ton of extra time and extra steps.

This sort of feature is especially great for when you drawing on paper and want your reference images to be cycling through on the monitor across the room.

Thanks everyone for chipping in with use cases and ideas, we can't promise anything yet but we'll look into if this is something we can add in a future version!

This is now available in 1.11.0 via Alt+S, and the interval can be changed in the settings. Please let us know if it works for you!
It works perfectly--simply implemented. Thank you devs.

Edit: 8/9

Add a Random Slide show option.

I just realized that any given selection of images, there's a set order. Wether it's 5 or 50 images--if I select a group of images, deselect, and then re-select them again, I will get the exact same order of images.

If I have to stop/pause the slideshow for any reason, I don't want to have to cycle through X number of images to find where I left off.

Also, sometimes you just want a random order.
