This is the widget I've been waiting for - functionality wise! I even had the Album of pics set up ready to go! Thank you!

One suggestion though - while I think the Polaroid 'frame' is quite creative, it would be nice to have some of 'frame' options (like the ones in the Developer Tool's Gallery) so that the widget area can have more picture showing...

Great idea and great creativity. But I'll have to second the border options. My screen real estate is too valuable for that much border.

MANY THANX! I have been waiting for such a widget. I like the timed slideshow and transitions. I concur w/ the other reviewers requesting a choice of frames.

It doesn't work for me. It tells me iPhoto 4 or higher required and I have 5. Running 10.4.1

Feature requests:
1) Slideshow like controls (play, back, etc.)
2) "Go to this photo" which would open the photo in iPhoto
3) Ability to rate photos (iTunes can do it, so why not?) and change other info (such as title).

Excellent widget- I asked for something like this.

What I want to see:

1) Ability to rate, as dukemeiser said. (that's the most important)

2) Ability to turn off random transitions and instead choose one to use (like in iPhoto)

3) Double clicking a photo in the widget opens the image in iPhoto

4) Change the behavior of "new picture when Dashboard activated" so that it changes the image as soon as you close dashboard, so it's already changed when you open it up again.

That would make this thing very near perfect.

Oh, a couple more things:

-Better randomizer. (I often get the same photo twice in a short time.)

and

- a back button

Very cool. My favorite widget (besides SlothCam) smiley

Maybe it takes up a bit too much memory, but I'm blaming that on Apple for now...

Was development of this widget given up?

I would love to see a version with some of the above suggestions

I've seen different version of this widget. Sometimes its called myPhoto and sometimes just Photo. Each version has a link to a different website on it and neither of the websites has any info on the widget. Furthermore neither of the authors of the websites have emailed me back.

Anyways I'd like to have the ability to open the current image in iPhoto. Other than that it rocks...

P.S. thank you to the guy two above who likes slothcam smiley

I think you should make an option to have it constantly cycling, because I would like to be able to just keep it on ym desktop (through developer mode) and it would be like a mini slideshow.

Also, soem other fram options would be key, because that would require less screen real estatem and would look a tad nicer as well.

This is by far the most superior photo widget I have seen on this site, I especially like the cool transitions.

Dear Folks:

I had a similar widget, not sure if it came from you folks. It kept getting stuck on the same two or three images.

The polaroid gimmick is certainly clever. It's also pretty ugly. The white is too stark and the borders too fat -- this photo won't be held by the thumb, you know?

A choice of frames -- the simpler the better -- would be excellent.
