I use picture slideshow screensaver addon as screensaver and have my image collection folder set for this to show up as screensaver. What I love about this screensaver is it shows the tags given to the image and the date it was taken.

When I watch my image collection in Kodi it shows the images without this info. Is there a way to get this info visable when watching images in Kodi? Now I just see the image without any info.

Thanks.

There is a seperate thread for the picture slideshow screensaver addon.
In case of problems, always attach a full kodi.log file.

This problem is not with the Picture Slideshow addon but with Kodi itself.

The Picture Slideshow addon does show me what I want but watching pictures in Kodi doesn't.
Should it let me see that info or is that not implanted yet?

I don't use the pictures section a lot, so I am unable to give a definite answer.

A quick look in the wiki shows me this... http://kodi.wiki/view/Settings/Pictures#File_lists

Do you have that set correctly

I know that I can get the info from the picture in a pop-up when pressing i but I like to see date and tag info in the played picture always.

The picture slideshow addon shows it like this.

If Kodi can do this too that would be nice.

Thanks.

That is helpfull but I already knew that.

The line show exif picture information is only available by pressing i to get it in a pop-up.

That's not what I want.

The only addon that does that provide that info in the picture is the picture slideshow screensaver but that is a screensaver and usable as standard picture viewer.
The addon My pictures database has a lot of options but also doesn't do that.

I am also missing the possibility to show user defined 'KEYWORDs' from picture IPTC data field.
