The way people reacted to the images in the FB album determined how those images were going to be used in building the image sequence (liked, if so how many times, used accordingly, not liked, images used once only).
I am building albums with images extracted from the three Gavotte movies, and the resulting image sequences will be used to create a fourth version of the Gavotte.
