Feature Request: Ignore portrait aspect images.

Is it possible to have an option for "Ignore portrait aspect images"? I find the programme great for running a slideshow on my second monitor, but portrait aspect images look a mess most of the time... especially if there are people in the centre of the shot, because it only shows from neck to knee.

I can separate the portrait ones out, but that messes things up when I run slideshows through my media centre.

Cheers
Lee

P.s. sorry if this is an old ask, there doesn't seem to be a search option in the discussions that I can see.

I've added this to our feature request list. In the meantime, you could try the "Fit Best and maintain Aspect Ratio (No Clipping)" Size Mode. You might end up with black bars on the sides or top and bottom of the images, but all types of images should fit on the screen

Thanks!

Yeah, I can certainly use the scaling options to ensure everything stays visible, thanks for considering it though... much appreciated.

I had also thought about requesting a folder play list, so that you could have a different folder each day. But I can get round that with a small C# programme (that I could write myself) to rename a set of folders based on the current day. Get that programme to run at boot up to modify the folders, then set DF to run as a scheduled startup instead of a "Run when windows loads" option.

It's a bit more fiddly, but it's something I can solve with a bit of effort on my part. I could probably solve the scaling issue with a programme that copies images into a target folder at boot, and let that programme filter out portrait aspect images. I certainly don't mind doing that, if you feel the feature isn't requested by enough people.

Thanks
Lee

No worries, we'll definitely look into the possibility of adding it. If it can add value then we definitely will

Thanks!
