4.6. Full-screen mode (Soundslides Plus only)


Full-screen playback is only available in in Soundslides Plus.

When viewing your slide show, users can switch to full-screen mode by clicking the full-screen button at the far-right end of the control bar.

To exit full-screen mode, users click the full-screen button again or press the keyboard's "Esc" key.

Creating a slide show with full-screen option

By default, Soundslides Plus will create a full-screen-enabled slide show. To disable the full-screen option, uncheck the "Full-screen enabled" box in the "Output sizes" dialog prior to importing your images.

 

Adding the full-screen option to a slide show created without it

To add the full-screen option to a slide show created without it, open your project in the latest version of Soundslides Plus, then select "Output sizes" from the "Modify" menu.

Next, click the box next to "Full-screen enabled," and click the "APPLY" button. After your images are re-processed, you can save, export and publish as normal.

 

Common questions about full-screen mode

Is it possible to have slide shows start in full-screen mode?

Adobe's Flash Player will not go into full-screen mode without the user's input. This is a restriction by Adobe. Adobe's reasoning is that full-screen mode would be overwhelming to any user who didn't expect it. Adobe is also concerned about advertisers taking over users' screens.

Why don't my images completely fill the screen?

Currently, the player takes up the entire screen, but the images appear at a maximum of 1000 pixels wide by 800 pixels high. Since preserving the proper resolution is critical to maintaining the quality of a still image, the player will not scale up images to fill a large monitor.

You can, however, increase the maximum image size up to 1280 pixels in either dimension by using two advanced parameters (for more information about advanced parameters, click here).

.


Below are steps for increasing maximum image size:

  1. With your project open in Soundslides Plus, select "Advanced parameters" from the "Modify" menu.
  2. Click the "add" button to add a new parameter.
  3. Click on the word "name" and change it to "max_fullscreen_width".
  4. Click on the word "value" and change it to the desired number.
  5. Again, click the "add" button to add a new parameter.
  6. Click on the word "name" and change it to "max_fullscreen_height".
  7. Click on the word "value" and change it to the desired number.
  8. Select "Output sizes" from the "Modify" menu.
  9. Make sure the "Full-screen enabled" box is checked and click the "APPLY" button.

Soundslides Plus will now reprocess your images. After it reprocesses, click the "TEST" button to confirm that your slide show's full-screen mode now features larger images.
