Image Display

(Updated 2016-11; BallroomDJ version 3.3.15)

Image Display is an optional component.

Image display displays images and/or videos in a window as the songs are played. This option can be used if a projector or large television is used to display the marquee.

Images can be assigned to a general category, or assigned to a category based on dance type (smooth, rhythm, club). When a song is played, a image is selected from the appropriate dance type category or the general category and displayed. Assigning images to a dance type category is optional.

A song can also be assigned a particular image to display. If a song has a particular image configured, that image will display when the song is played.

Images are not resized by BallroomDJ; the images need to be sized appropriately beforehand.

Turning Image Display On

Select the Configuration / Options / User Interface options tab. Turn on Enable Image Display.

Using Image Display
