Slide Show by default sorts your images by their names. For example if

Fisherman's will first display ford.jpg then hundai.jpg and on the end
to sort images in other ways?
number and hyphens (-) at the beginning
of image name and Fisherman's will sort your images following the order
of numbers. E.g. 1-ford.jpg, 2-mercedes.jpg and 3-hundai.jpg will result
with displaying ford.jpg, mercedes.jpg and hundai.jpg.
to push some images in front of others:
If you set numbers only for few images, not for all, Fisherman's will
pick up those images and display them first. Others will sort by the name.
E.g. 1-ganga.jpg will come before amazona.jpg. and bahamas.jpg
How to push some
images behind of all others:
If you have lot of images and you don't want to use numbers on all, you
can push some images backward with letters zz and number. For example
zz1-amazona.jpg and zz2-ganga.jpg Fisherman's will display them behind
of all others.
to display complexly name (if
is in custom.php preset 2 for displaying image names)?
use underscore (_) in your image name. E.g.
My_new_house.jpg Fisherman's will display like My new house.
1. Don't use dots in your image names. Dot is exclusively used for extensions.
will not resize images which both dimensions are smaller then preset image
height and width in custom.php.
3. Fisherman's will remove numbers and letters in the front of your image
names and extensions at the end if you preset show name on 2 in custom.php.
In that case 2-Mercedes.jpg will display Mercedes,
zz1-AMAZONA.jpg will display AMAZONA and 1-My_new_house.jpg will display
My new house in the following ordrer:
images for faster download and displaying.
(if you preset 1 for description in custom.php):
Every row in description.txt is divided in three columns and every row
defines one image. You can set descriptions for all images or only for
few because Fisherman's Slide Show will find appropriate image. In the
first column you need to type name of image (with extension). In second
target URL (Fisherman's Slide Show will ignore this column if you preset
in custom.php 0 - URL to original image or 2 - without URL). In the third
column you need to type image description. You can use html definitions
for better view or links, too.
Every definition for each image starts in new line but doesn't
break anyway this definition with Enter or Ctrl+Enter (html code
are included). Otherwise you will see only part of your description.
