Have you ever wanted to display a slideshow of photographs– but add new images on-the-fly?
There are at least a dozen ways to display a slideshow of photographs on a TV. Smart TVs or media players like a Roku can display images from a media card, connect to a cloud account or social media.
But what if you wanted that slideshow to include new photos added to the album after the slideshow has started? This would be useful during a wedding reception, product launch or retirement party. Partygoers are greeted by photos of your guest of honor as they arrive, then as the evening progresses they see new images of the actual event.
Remember the wireless storage cards made by Eye-Fi? If not, you aren’t alone.
The basic idea behind Eye-Fi wireless storage cards was to bundle an SD media card with an onboard WiFi chip. This card, once inserted into your DSLR camera, allowed you to magically transfer images as you snapped them. It’s sad Eye-Fi didn’t succeed, because it was such a cool photography tool.
A friend recently lamented, “I haven’t been inside a museum in months.”
It’s only one more collateral effect of this global mire we’re all living through. Museums have been shuttered, and exhibitions have been cancelled. Since March most of the world’s art and culture has been on hold. Or on Zoom.
Should you find yourself on the shore of Lake Como be sure to look up the Villa d’Este. It has been home to cardinals, queens and— during the Italian Grand Prix— drivers for the Ferrari team. With rooms starting around a grand per night it truly is an address of distinction.
But every April a showing of exquisite cars steals the limelight, and the villa is transformed into an automotive shrine. The Concorza d’Eleganza Villla d’Este is one of the most incredible car shows in the world.
