Rotating Slide Show Not Working

I got 3 pictures that I like off google and set them as my background. made a new theme set them to 10 min rotate. Once it gets to the 3rd pic it stops and doesn't rotate. I go to look in the theme and there is a thing called "TranscodedWallpaper" that is the exact copy of the 3rd pic. I delete it and the rotation works for 1 go around then 2nd time it creates the "TranscodedWallpaper" and gets stuck again... I have looked at all the other forums and none of the fixes for those worked (none of the problems were exactly the same) Any help will be greatly appreciated

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
How exactly did you save these three images ?
Can you post a link to the images please so we might review them and see what the issue might be ?
Cheers.

What's your resolution,
Some of the images in the preview do not open a original image but do open the website that has the download options,
Unfortunately they usually deposit tracking cookies to the images they offer = usually for sell or subscription....
The first link you posted is to an original image the other two were just to preview of all,

As you can see with this one it says noCookieNet on the file name = you wouldn't want that one

This one might be clean,

So in short you really need to review the names of the files you save picture as,
I'd say test with these,
Cheers.

You can use these free tools to see if they findanything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running,(one at a time of course).
Uncheck the box to Active Free trial from the finalinstall options,

It's best to crop and resize images the exact size of your resolution and they show better because windows is not stretching or compressing them and you can use Fill screen and not worry about it,
But that also depends on the quality of the images as well large images usually scale poorly in windows especially jpg's

The file kb size will tell you want type of quality the image is and that will give you an idea how well it will scale to fit your resolution.

First thing I usually do after savin an image is change the name when saving it,
Then if it does not fit the screen I'll edit it until it does and that's the image I use.

There's quite a few free image editors out there gimp/ paint.net/....

I was addressing the some times poor display/ scaling of images,
The slide show deal is interesting but you have to start somewhere and trying to save the images a different way would be my first suggestion

Images often come with more than just the image,
It usually takes me a while to find an acceptable hopefully clean image to use,
Sometimes I use full screen mode F11 and zoom in as needed and use screen capture = for me it's Shift+PrtScrn keys
Then open MS Paint and Paste.
