Photo album (en)
From Conky PitStop
This script uses imlib2 bindings AND Cairo bindings for Lua in order to display a photo album in your Conky, like so:
You can download the script here. In the package, you’ll find the photo_album.lua script, the .conkyrc that made the screenie above, the widget code block (for use with Conky Widgets v1.1) and the screenie for reference.
In the script, you can customize the size and placement of the widget, the thickness of the frame, and the number of Conky updates between updates of the photo. You will also need to specify the directory containing the pictures you want to display.
