Suppose that I have plotted many figures and have exported them as images. Now for the post-processing phase, I would like to import these figures and manipulate them in such a way that a slider assists me to view them together. The plots are produced by changing just one parameter. Thus I would like to put the name of this parameter on the slide as well as its range. Does anyone have experience for such manipulation?

Thanks in advance

First I will create some files to reproduce what you have

SetDirectory[$TemporaryDirectory];
SetDirectory@CreateDirectory["TestPictures"]; *)

Export[
   StringJoin[
    #[[2]]
    , ".png"
    ]
   , ImageResize[
    ExampleData[#]
    , 100
    ]
   ] & /@ Take[
  ExampleData["TestImage"]
  , 5
  ]

Now we can use the Slider in Manipulate.

With[{picturefiles = FileNames["*.png"]},
 Manipulate[
  Column[
   {
    picturefiles[[k]],
    Import[picturefiles[[k]]]
    }
   ]
  , {{k,1,"Index"}, 1, Length[picturefiles], 1}
  ]
 ]

enter image description here

Without Slider but SetterBar, in this case better.

With[{picturefiles = FileNames["*.png"]},
 Manipulate[
  Import[k]
  , {{k, picturefiles[[1]], "File"}, picturefiles, SetterBar, 
   Appearance -> "Vertical"}
  ]]

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for your answer. Is it possible to change the name of the slider and also show its range on the slider? $\endgroup$ – KratosMath Jun 2 '18 at 9:52
