The preferred slideshow on this website, uses Adobe Flash Technology.

This appears as either slideshow or Slideshow 1.

But Apple and Android devices don’t have an Adobe Flash Player.

So, when you try to display a page containing Flash you get a message such as:

“This photo gallery requires the Adobe Flash Player. Get the free flash player here.”

But the download isn’t available for the above devices.

So, how to get round this?

If Slideshow 2 is shown as alternative, using this will enable the playing of the slideshow.

But, if not, how do you play a slideshow? Easy!!

There is a Flash Player app for Apple and Android operating systems  – Photon Flash Player (and there are others!). These are Internet Browsers and can be used instead of your usual one for all your browsing, and indeed some are better featured.

What you need do:

Once off  – Install the appropriate app from the App Store or Play Store in the normal way, easy!

Then:

  1. Click on the installed Photon icon.
  2. Browse to canalscene.com (or other site).
  3. Click on a slideshow link and a new window opens displaying the message “This photo gallery requires the Adobe Flash Player. Get the free flash player here.”
  4. Click on the Lightning button on the top toolbar, that is, the 3rd ikon from the right.

The slideshow will be displayed. Click on the play button to play.

Easy as I said! By the way, it’s worth resizing the displayed screen (with pinch gesture) to fill it with the photos.

Do try it…
