Once you've got your slideshow working, click the button below to download the tarot card image files by clicking the button below. Once downloaded, unzip the files and copy them to your CIRCUITPY/Slideshow folder.







When adding graphics to the MagTag, remember that the MagTag can only display .bmp files.

If you need simpler code to get your slideshow going you can copy this block of code to mu-editor. Save the code to the MagTag CIRCUITPY drive as code.py:

from adafruit_magtag.magtag import MagTag
from adafruit_slideshow import SlideShow

magtag = MagTag()

slideshow = SlideShow(
    auto_advance = True,
    dwell= 40

while slideshow.update():

This code allows your MagTag to display a new image from the slideshow folder every 40 seconds (depending on your duration choice). 

After you've tested your MagTag slideshow, let's download Adafruit AR.

If you haven't already, download Adafruit AR on the Apple App Store. Once you've passed the onboarding pages, select the View Board Info. 

Once you're there, scan your tarot cards. Minerva will pop up and read your tarot card.
