Active-DVI is a DVI previewer and a programmable presenter for slides written in LaTeX. The previewer features color anti-aliasing, inclusion of images with alpha channel and blending, encapsulated Postscript file inclusion, Gpic specials to display pictures, correct treatment of many inlined-Postscript specials, page background settings, and Japanese pTeX DVI extension support. To present your DVI files, it features basic effects for presentation (pause, delay, dynamic text color change), annotations displayed on demand (similar to pop-up balloons), hyperlinks from slide to slide or to other files, replay of previously recorded parts of the display, text movements, page transitions, embedded applications, and scratching on slide to interactively modify the text on screen. Its special effects are set and launched from within your LaTeX source file via the macros of the advi.sty LaTeX package provided by the distribution. In addition, Caml hackers can program new and fancy Active-DVI effects in the source code of the presenter.
Tnailer was originally written to automatically pull images from a SmartMedia card and then create thumbnailed albums arranged in cronological order, but it will work just fine with any group of images. It will adjust the scale (physical image size) of any type of image in the album, and can adjust the quality (compression level) of JPEG and PNG files. It will work with over 66 other image formats, including GIF, PICT, TIFF, and even PDF. It has some basic HTML formatting options, and adds linear navigation to each image's individual page so that browsing forward and backward through the entire album is easy and intuitive.
EZFB is a polymorphic, object oriented Linux frame buffer API written in C, designed to adapt at run time to control any properly configured Linux frame buffer video system. It offers independent, simultaneous control of multiple video cards within a single system, exceptional control of colors, the ability to display all or portions of bitmap files anywhere on the screen, automatic color depth conversion, the ability to capture to bitmap files, an 8x8 bitmapped font, routines to draw points, lines, outlined and filled rectangles, signal trapping for automatic screen clean-up at process termination, and much more. The demonstration applications include a bitmap viewer, screen capture utility, screen saver, and a touch screen calibration utility and an application for generating, viewing, transforming, and saving files according to The International Laser Display Association's ILDA file format.
MT2 Thumbnailer (Make Thumbnails 2) is another program for generating HTML photo albums from pictures. It gives users a great deal of control over the comments shown alongside each picture, and the way the pictures are ordered and grouped. Having descriptions, reflections, quips, and quotes in a picture album makes it much more memorable and fun to write.
The Webcam Network is a network of webcam/image publishers and subscribers. Users can publish to the network using the publisher tool and subscribe to the network using the viewer tool. The publisher tool will push images to the network at an arbitrary rate, and the viewer will display image updates from selected publishers in real-time with resizing, scaling, or in collage mode. The viewer can also render to the root window.
