You will have to create your own script and DAE files depending on what you want. This theme does what you want with a static background. I can help you. What exactly do you want to do?

Hello uLtRaMa6nEt1c,
Thanks for your fast response.Laugh
So please have a look to this" http://www.ps3-themes.com/misc....._moon.html"
I want to have the moon as an static backround. and the other backs just appears round about 5 or 7 second changeing.
Right now the theme works like changeing together. ( moon back with all th others ).
I dont like this causing i have to merge the pictures with a lot of details lost.

Thank you for the link to tmnt 2014 dynamic slideshow.
Are they any tutorials I can use for this ?

I see.
You're gonna have to make additions and adjustments to the script and create a DAE file for the changing pics. Not too advanced, but a lot of trial and error when trying to place the slides where you want. Do you want the slides to have transparency like the girl in that preview pic? If so, are you familiar with Photoshop and alpha channels?

Yeah thats right.
I want the slides tranparency.
I am familiar with Photoshop and alpha channels.
Right now I´m just using GIMP for these stuff. I think I can handle it.
Regarding the question that you see before,
It means that DAE file creation is a batch out of photoshop ?
Or its coming out of the script ?
Is there any tut that you have make where I can see it how it works ?
Maybe it smalls down the trial and error handle a little bit.

DAE files are made with a free 3D creation program called Bender. Here's a tutorial. If you have a problem (as I did) let me know.
The static background has to be JPEG/JPG standard/baseline. NOT optimized or progressive.
I'll link a pic of what you need to add to the XML later.
The hard part is positioning the slides where you want on the screen. I'll help you with that when you get to that point.

Replace the UltraSlideshow.xml in the UltraSlideshow folder with THIS script.
Name the DAE file you create 'slide' (no quotation marks).
You may not be able to use all 15 slides because of memory limits. Keep that in mind.
I'm around if you need more help. Also you can find me on PSN - ultrama6net1c (no blank requests).
