Auto-Loading of images without manual selection

October 17, 2009 | 9:19 pm

I would like to find out how to auto upload pictures or images I have saved on a file whithout me having to manually selected what picture I want displayed. At the moment I’m able to load one image and I have to manually select the image from the desired location. I need to make this process automated. Any ideas how to accomplish this?

Many thanks. Have uploaded my patch.

there is tons of info on this in the forums and help-files…

here is one solution that works for me. drop a folder with your media onto the bpatcher. it will load the files (you need to tell it what files to look for; e.g. jpeg, aiff, mov,…). an int into the right inlet will select the file and output its name. You just need to add prepend read/open (whatever you need) and voila it should work.

this might need some tweaking for your purposes, but it should give you a good start in the right direction.
