using a full screen and a remote 10 button joystick to control the slideshow.
That could be nice when your PC is also connected to your HD TV or an other big screen.
It is also possible to rotate, flip, zoom and move a picture using the joystick.
Hit button 4 of the joystick to zoom in.
Other functions and the needed buttons of the joystick are shown in the menu between parentheses.
