The iPad 2 is a great device for viewing pictures that you have either transferred to the device or taken with the integrated camera. Its’ excellent screen and picture frame-like appearance make it ideally suited for viewing images. The images that you have on the device can all be accessed from the Photos app that is included by default, and you can either choose to manually view each image or have them all cycle through as a slideshow. But if you think that each slide is either displaying for too short or too long a time period, then you may be curious about how to adjust the slide time for the iPad 2 slideshow. This is an element that you can adjust from the Settings menu on your iPad, and you can choose from five different slide durations.
