Urgent display software question

A bit of a long shot, but here goes...

I'm urgently looking for some software that will randomly pick images from a database, fade them in, float them across a screen at different angles and then fade them out again as they leave the screen.

Does anyone have any experience of this sort of stuff?

I don't know of any software programs that are designed to do this exactly but the simplest way would be just to use Powerpoint to transition and fade between your own supplied pictures. Another way may be to just generate a random picture screensaver on a computer or laptop using that screen or feeding to a TV via HDMI. There are programs (PC) that are random screensaver generators but usually again need you to supply the images no doubt due to copyright issues with pictures. Just go out and take a load of pictures of the subject matter or random pics in the locality and use them as the pics to feed either

Sorry, I should have said, the image library will be supplied.

Irfanview is great for producing a simple slideshow. You'll have trouble making complicated transitions though. Its just one photo to another.
