Feature Request - synced image rotation on both monitors

Hello,
thanks for your wonderful software, i've been using it for over a year now and it's great!

i've seen that displayfusion pro now has the ability to randomly change images, so i registered to get the pro version. unfortunately it doesn't allow me to randomize both monitors in "sync".

what i mean is this, i have a folder with specially named images in pairs, one for the left monitor, and one for the right, e.g.:

autumn_1920_left.jpg
autumn_1920_right.jpg
ITF_1920_left.jpg
ITF_1920_right.jpg
WTHF_1920_left.jpg
WTHF_1920_right.jpg
... and so on.

the randomizer should be able to display the two corresponding images together. e.g. if the left monitor shows "ITF_1920_left" then the right one shoud show "ITF_1920_right".

i guess the easiest way would be to check if the image name ends with "_left" (or a user customizeable ending string), and if it does, see if theres an image with the same name that ends with "_right", and then display these two together. additionally, don't have seperate timers for both screens, but one single "main" timer.

could you fulfill me this small feature request ? :)

if you want to take this even a step further, you could add another ending string: "_both". this would mean that the randomizer takes this single image and spans it over both monitors.

then, instead of adding single images to the randomizer list, i would just drop correctly named images into a special folder and done. this addition would be so wonderful!

anyway, thanks for all the work.

Thank you for the suggestion. This is something that has been requested before, and I've been trying to figure out a "clean" way to integrate it, without messing up the interface too much. For your suggestion of a main timer, if you just set them to change at the same interval, they will always change at the same time. I'll post again if I make any progress in sorting this out.
