        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  |

        [-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.
 

OPTIONS

        -visual visual
                Specify which visual to use.  Legal values are the  name  of  a
                visual  class,  or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific
                visual.
 
        -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.
 
        -root   Draw on the root window.
 
        -count int
                How many images to display.  Default 7.
 
        -scale factor
                Size of images in relation to the size of the window.   Default
                0.4.
 
        -maxTilt degrees
                Maximum deviation from vertical.  Default 50 degrees.
 
        -duration seconds
                Every duration seconds, one of the images will be replaced with
                a new one.  Default 5 seconds.
 
        -speed ratio
                Speed up or slow down the animation.  0.5 means half as fast as
                the default; 2.0 means twice as fast.
 
        -delay number
                Per-frame  delay,  in  microseconds.  Default: 10000 (0.01 sec-

        -titles | -no-titles
                Whether to display the file names of the images  beneath  them.
                Default: no.
 
        -font font-name
                The font to use for the initial loading screen.
 
        -fps    Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.
