Default making slideshows: picture duration, xfades vs. hard changes?

About to do a photo slideshow in Reaper..
Are there common practices about image durations (I thought maybe 5 sec. for each? content is mostly nature/garden/plants), doing image crossfades (how long if so?, 0.5. sec. maybe?) vs. 'hard' changes?
Any other tips/thoughts?

If anyone should be interested (I don't think so given the number of replies, but anyway) I went with 5 sec. per image (that felt neither rushed nor boring for the given photos, for text only I went a bit longer) with no crossfades (felt a bit annoying after a while).

Yes, that's easy. It depends on your audience/viewers:

elderly people: ca. 20 seconds
best ager: ca. 2 seconds
young people + teenager: 100 milliseconds
