Slideshow Bob

Slideshow Bob Icon Slideshow Bob is a simple freeware picture viewer that will play JPEG photos in sequence. It lets you turn your Windows computer or tablet into a Digital Picture Frame.

For each photo, it will also play an associated WAV sound file, if present. Slideshow Bob will run without being installed, so you can put it and your photos on a memory stick, to be played on any computer that runs Windows. It is compatible with all versions of Windows from Windows 95 (from 1995) right up to Windows 11 (current version in 2023).

We present no screenshot, as your photos are the screenshot! When run, a dialog box appears where you pick the folder that contains your photos. After the first photo appears, press spacebar to advance to the next photo, or press the F1 key to access the slideshow playing options.
