Presentations - Access photos on AWS in placeholder

Is there a way you can point to an AWS Url to access all the photos that folder? I see a widget to access albums but does not seem to support point to an AWS URL.  I can manually load individual; but wanted a concept where it would slideshow all photos just by point at a folder location on AWS. 
Thanks

Glenn,

The best way would be to add multiple images to a single placeholder by right clicking the placeholder, properties, add, image. You then should link directly to the images hosted on AWS.

Thanks Blake,  I was hoping for a more automated method of ingesting multiple images from a specified AWS S3 directory.  I was able to manually add multiple images via the "add image" method. As I get more familiar with rise api, maybe I can figure out a programmatic way of doing this...;-)

Update: I have a ruby-rail mobile application to manage photos.  I was successful in building out a media rss (flickr template) to map out the desired photos in this application and feeding this into photo album widget; which maps to a registered device.  This worked well. Happy to elaborate if someone is working a similar issue.  thanks,

I would be very interested in seeing what Glenn did to enable this.

Hi - You generate an MRSS (XML) feed. You can find many examples on the web. Here is a link to a flickr documentation: http://mashupguide.net/1.0/html/ch04s06.xhtml When you generate this feed, it contains the url to the media or photos.  You point your presentation widget to the MRSS to populate the slide show.  We have a backend application that manages the content of the MRSS which in turn will update the slide show.  I hope that helps.  Thanks,
