Your English seems pretty good to me! However I could write it, but before we have to go through the HOW-TO:Submit a bug report.
I will read it as soon as I can and then get back here, however it would be nice, @Aux_, if you could help and read it as well.
Thanks!

I could find the following bug reports: slideshow is very slow with big images. It is however very old and it is closed now. However the description is similar to what I observe. In my case I have never tried to load smaller pictures though.

So now works slideshow. Smile

1. I have put in Player settings -> Pictures -> Amount of time to display each image -> to 2sec
2. Randomise -> off
3. High quality downscaling -> on

After that I had reboot the RPi and slideshow works fine, I think Randomise does not work properly.

I tried but it does not work for me. The slideshow is slow, it is fast only if I manually hit the next button on the remote.
Probably it is something linked with the fading effect.
Randomise does not seem to have any effect for me.

@alexmogavero,

the only thing I had also changed was in Settings -> System -> Display -> Set GUI resolution limit -> 720, more I had not done.
Important is also I think reboot.
I use LibreELEC 8.0.2 - everything new installed

Thank you. However I still cannot fix this issue, but I am not using LibreELEC, since I have Raspbian.
I have just completed the issue of a bug ticket here.
Let's see if anyone is able to help.

Well done, we have to wait and see what happens now.

With the Confluence skin instead of Estuary, it works better, but not optimally
