Hi Anders,

I can't see the options you talk about.  The 'Slideshow' button has 3 
options, 'All', 'Selection' and 'With All Sub-Albums' there is no 
'Advanced' option, also the menu 'View' > 'Slideshow' has those same 

I have created an Advanced Search to get the pictures I want, but there 
are no view options in there that I can see.

Am I missing something here?  I am running DK 4.1.0
