I am trying to get Views to display files I have uploaded to my server using the Media module.
My end-goal is to display the 5 most recently uploaded pictures (from any album) in a slideshow on the front page (using Views Slideshow).
My website as a whole will be my personal photography-website when it's complete. The way I have everything set up so far is: I created a new content type for my pictures called Photos. Next, I create a new piece of that custom content and upload pictures to it. The organization structure is that, each new piece of Photos content behaves like an album--containing a set of images pertaining to it's title.
For example, if I wanted an album specifically dedicated to landscapes, I would create a new Photos piece of content, and upload all my images of landscapes to it.
The problem I have right now is, I can get Views to display my custom content type and scroll through it, but because each individual picture is wrapped inside a Photos content, the View will display every single image in that album 'per-slide'. How do I get Views to only display the five most recently uploaded Media files? (As opposed to what it's doing right now, displaying the five most recently added Photos albums.)
