Custom Default image

Is it possible to set the default "blank.jpg" to a custom image instead of the <?> image built in to the viewer?  Can that be set in the configuration file?

I've done that recently. 

You need to replace the blank.jpg image in the Resources folder with the image you want shown.  Remember to ensure that the Build Action on the image properties is set to Resource.  The image will then be embedded with the player and will be shown whenever it can't find a specific image.

Anyway...that's how I got it done.  I didn't look into setting it in the configuration file, but I guess that can be built in as well - if you have some time to get to learn the code.

Ya, that is what I ended up doing too.  I originally asked this when I first stumbled upon the Slide.Show project.  Since then, I've attempted to add a setting to the config file for it, but at the moment we have one use for the slide show so it was easier just to change the image and rebuild the project.
