photopile — displays multiple images in a periodically shuffled pile

Synopsis

photopile [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window] [-root] [-count int] [-scale factor] [-maxTilt degrees] [-titles | -no-titles] [-polaroid | -no-polaroid] [-shadows | -no-shadows] [-font font] [-speed ratio] [-duration seconds] [-fps] [-debug] [-wireframe]

Description

Loads several random images, and displays them as if lying in a random pile. The pile is periodically reshuffled, with new images coming in and old ones being thrown out.

This program requires a good video card capable of supporting large textures.

To specify the directory that images are loaded from, run xscreensaver-demo(1) and click on the "Advanced" tab.
