Default FR: Let me select a local directory instead

of going online. This will allow me to select the images more specifically of course, too. Seems like this is a pretty basic feature idea.

Thanks for the debris! :-)

Hi there. Actually you can drag and drop image files or directories onto the main debris window and they will be used next. Once the images are used, they will not be used again, though. (Although you can then re-drop them.) I agree it would be nice to be able to re-use a folder full of images. On the TODO list

Cool. This program is f#ing fabulous, aesthetically. Rauschenberg, Cage, and Warhol would all approve.

Cheers, the frog

I'll add my "way cool".

Going to install it now and let it rip.

heh, actually my desktop pc died about a month ago and I haven't been able to do much coding. Soon, though, I hope, especially once my quad core replacement arrives!!

I'm playing around with making a AHK script to simulate drag-n-drop of graphics files onto the debris window, BTW.

Nice! I only just got into AHK last week to automate some coding tasks. It's pretty sweet.

Questions:

Can I drag-n-drop multiple files onto Debris? How many? And what duration between drag-n-drops? Any?

Thanks!

As many as you like. There should be basically no limit. And I don't think there is a speed limit, either. The files are just added to a list in memory.

This is by far the most requested feature, BTW. Sorry world...

Part of what had kept me from implementing it is defining the behavior. Should it use them once each? Repeat once all have been used? Something even more slick in terms of shuffle behavior? I'm open to ideas...

Those behaviors as defined for web images work really well through the settings dialog. Handle local images the same way and who's awesome, you're fucking awesome that's who. When I drag and drop a slew of images on Debris, it works pretty great as-is using the existing settings dialogs. Does that address your question any? As in, it's pretty great already.

So I think the program is absolutely awesome already if I didn't mention that, and if you can just add to drag-and-drop the option to open a select file/folder dialog in addition, you would be even more awesome. And you're already the most awesomest in the field of semi-random art generators out there, pay or free. One of the best little secrets on the web that I know of.

Your fan, frog

BTW, the latest build of Debris Visual Art now includes a button to select files to add to the cache. A button to select an entire folder will be forthcoming in the build after that.
