I'm using the slideshow gadget to try and display a full screen slideshow. The gadget size is set to 1920x1080 and all the photos are at that resolution as well. When the slideshow runs, the photos appear at maybe half that size. Is there a setting that i am missing to enable this?

There's currently a bug logged where full screen Placeholder doesn't show the images full size.  The current plan is to develop the Photo Album Gadget into a Widget and take care of the issue that way.  I currently don't have a date for when this will be fixed, but will let you know when it is.

Thanks!

Has any progress on this bug been made in the past six months? Is there another solution for displaying a full screen slide show? I imagine this must be a very common need.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Full Screen Slide Show.

I understand that the Photo Album gadget has a known bug which does not allow for full screen slide shows. Has anyone found a workaround or another gadget that accomplishes this? 

I have Picasa photo albums containing 1920x1080 slides which I need to run fullscreen on 1920x1080 screens. I can get individual images to scale properly, even fill the screen, but scheduling them individually is not a viable solution.

Thanks.

Sean,

While the photo album gadget is slated for an update, I don't have any timelines available.

One option would be to set up a slideshow on your own website, then use the web page gadget to display it.
