  • The second line sets the properties for the folder paart0 you had created. The first number-1- is the duration that the images on that folder will be repeated, and in this case it is once. The next digit-0- is the delay between the chosen images, and in our case it is zero.
  • The third line sets the properties of the folder part1. As the case in the previous folder, the first 0 is the number of times the images will be repeated, which in our case is infinite since zero represents an infinite loop. The second digit is the delay between the images, and in this case it is 0.

  • Now you should select all the three- part0, part1 and info.txt and zip them using the Store compression method. After zipping them, check if it has a thumbs.db file created. If this is the case, delete the file and zip it again.
