Camera Pictures, Photos, Wallpaper, or All Pictures Folders on Your PlayBook

On your BlackBerry PlayBook, the Camera Pictures, Photos, Wallpaper, or All Pictures folders offer you plenty of options. Here’s what you can do with the Camera Pictures, Photos, Wallpaper, or All Pictures folders:

  • Jump to a specific image from your collection. Swipe down from the top bezel to display the available folders and tap one to open it. Swipe down again from the top bezel to show a scrolling series of thumbnails and scroll through them with the touch of a finger until you see the one you want to display. Tap it.

  • Enlarge a single image to fill the screen. If an image is smaller than the full screen, simply pinch out. The easiest way to do this is to place your thumb and pointing finger on the image and spread them apart; if the image gets too large, you can pinch in to make it smaller.

  • Return an enlarged image to its original size. The simplest way to reduce an image from an enlarged size to its original size is to tap twice on the picture. Hey, you: get back to where you belong.

  • Display a single image. Tap any of the images to have it fill much of the touchscreen. Depending on the file’s size, it may not fill the entire screen. Here, you can see a photo as displayed on the PlayBook screen.

  • Move manually from one picture to another. You can do this two ways:

    • Swipe horizontally from right to left to move to the next image. Swipe horizontally from left to right to move to the previous one.

    • Tap an image to bring up a large play button surrounded on either side by small back and forward buttons. Use the smaller back or forward buttons to move in one direction or another.

  • Set up an automatic slideshow. Tap one of the pictures and then tap the large play button. The tablet marches through your pictures all by itself, with each one displayed for about two seconds. You can halt the display at any time by merely tapping a picture. Start it again by tapping again, and then tapping the large play button.

  • Set a particular photo as the wallpaper for the home screen. Display an image you want to use as wallpaper and then swipe down from the top bezel to show available options. Tap the Set as Wallpaper icon in the upper-right corner.

  • Delete a specific photo from your collection. Display an image and then swipe down from the top bezel to show options. Tap the trashcan icon in the upper-right corner. You get the chance to confirm your decision.
