    The Desktop Slideshow options lets you configure the picture position, picture change interval and turn on or off the shuffle option. Here is another hidden feature in Windows 7 configurable using the Registry Editor, that allows you increase the desktop slideshow transition animation duration.
    Increase Desktop Slideshow Animation Duration

    1. Click Start, type Regedit.exe and press {ENTER}
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Personalization \ Desktop Slideshow
    2. Right-click on the key and create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value, and name itAnimationDuration
    3. Double-click AnimationDuration and set its Value data to 1000 (milliseconds)
    4. Exit the Registry Editor.

    For the purpose of illustration I’ve set AnimationDuration to 2000 milliseconds, and the effect of which can be watched in this video.
