Q: Solved: Slide Show

Hi, This may seem such a silly question and I feel really stupid for asking but I cannot seem to get my slide show to work in explorer. I am using Windows XP Pro. It was there to start with but I clicked on something to cancel this feature but I now cannot get it back. I have used the help in Explorer to no avail.
Any ideas, please?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm having a family reunion on Saturday at which there will be a screen for a slideshow of photos. We have a folder of around 1500 pictures which we want shown on the night. I tried windows movie maker, spent hours arranging the photos so that they were in no particular order and in the end it couldn't deal with the large file size. I have also tried smilebox but it won't let me import the photos en masse and I can't be bothered individually clicking 'add' on them all.

Basically I want a simple software that will allow me to add all 1500 photos at once and will jumble them up for me so that they're not in alphabetical order (the way shuffle would work on an ipod, no picture would be shown twice). Any suggestions welcome asap. Thanks

I'm 99% sure that Windows 98 doesn't have a built-in slide show. The easiest thing to do is open the pics on a different computer. Adobe PS doesn't do slide shows, unfortunately. Good luck!

Untill recently I have not made any CD or DVD disks to show groups of my digital pictures in a file show as I always have viewed them on the computer. I did not buy a DVD player till I found one that played all formats (especially for the movies). I have made several short slide shows using the Sonic program that came with my computer (Dell Dimension 8400) But I do not get the slides to show in the order I wish. In the DVD player they play but the order is not the way I want it no matter what order thy are recorded. The files within the folders play in order but the folders do not. If you have a group of pictures folders and within them you have different folders or for pictures how do you get them to play in the order you wish. It seems thy follow the alphanumeric ssetup.

Hi guys.

Hoping you can help me

I recently took a group of kids on tour. I have about 1500 photos and a 40 min video which I want to put on DVD for them.

I have sorted the photos, deleting duplicates, blurred and over exposed photographs, leaving me with 500 odd pictures sorted into 13 categories. I am now in the process of creating slideshows of each category. The slide shows are pretty simple, about 20 photos viewing for 4 seconds and a 3 sec transition. I have created an mp3 music file (using adacity) which then plays when a slide show runs. Each picture has been resized to 600 pixels high, aspect ratio maintained using irfanview.

To create the slide shows, I originally used windows movie maker version 6, however found the quality to be poor so tried a few other applications, eventually settling on Camtasia Studio 3.

I am able to insert the photographs, add the mp3 sound track and add add transition effects as required. Once all is done I then produce video as an avi, as this offers the most superior quality.

Here are the problems?

Do these avi files play on any pc with windows media player, or are special codecs required?

These files are pretty big, averaging 100mb per slide show. Is there a way to reduce the size without loosing quality. Experimentation shows that the same project produced as a wmv is only about 5 mb, but quality is very poor.

Camtasia also allows me to create flash flv files which are good quality and smaller than the avi files. I have consider... Read more

I have been tasked with creating a slideshow combined with video that can be played on a DVD. I have all the necessary hardware. So far i have adobe photoshop 7.0 and premiere pro 2.0. The software is legit and was given to me by my relatively well off relatives .

I have a TON of photos to scan and i would like whatever software there is to automatically crop the photo's. I know i can manually crop the photo's with photoshop but that would take too much time as i have been only given 2 weeks to complete this project. IS there software that will do this and what do you all recommend. I will also be laying music tracks to run with the slideshow so if there is something that will do both without requiring me to get a huge book to learn how to use it(like photoshop does) that would be ideal.

If what i'm asking just isn't possible don't hesitate to say so. Any suggestions on software would be great. The scanner i am using is a canon multipass 390. Money is not an issue here. I have been told to purchase whatever i need software wise and i will be reimbursed for it.

When you go into Display Properties and hit the Screensaver tab click on settings. There should be a tick box that when clicked will give the option to 'Show File Names'. Hey presto, the picture source path will be shown in top left corner of your picture. If you set the change time to 6 seconds it shouldn't be too hard to quickly note the origin and file name...

Alternatively, why not put all your pics into one folder and then simply set a set slide show in motion... you can freeze that at will.

I believe what youre looking to disable is "active view". Here's how:

1. Go to your inbox and look at the top right of the page. Find where it says "options" and click to open a dropdown menu.

2. From the dropdown menu select "more options"

3. In the new window locate the "Reading email" header and click on "Active View settings"
