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 have a folder with almost 200 (and growing) Windows 10 backgrounds. I have my monitor set to show the pictures as backgrounds, changing every minute. However, it only shows about ten different backgrounds. I have tried re-arranging the photos in the folder and even sending the repeats to another folder. However, it will not display more than about ten different backgrounds.

Any brilliant suggestions?

PS. Stephanie, I got a bunch of them from your thread. You guys are brilliant!

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.

1. Can Any one of you guys suggest a good Video Editing or Slideshow Creation Software?
2. Will I Get a High Definition Video Output after the processing of the Video?
3. Can you suggest a good Soundtrack for the Video? ( Between 3 Minutes and 4 Minutes, Melodious, A Track that can Represent an old memory Together etc.)

A:For a Picture Slide Show....

Well, I personally have been asked to do this before by a teacher friend of mine. I used PowerPoint 2010 for that and used the metro design with the pictures. I just made a mosaic on each slide, used a fade in animation on each photo and staggered the timing, then had a blank black slide fade in and did it again. I used certain transition animations based on the tempo of the song at that particular timing. It was intense! The song I used was by Grouplove, Tongue Tied. I find it's a fantastic song to go with an emotional, memory packed presentation. It's about 3 and half minutes long. Another song that can be used is Spun by Grouplove too, but I'd go with Tongue Tide as you can cry and sing along with it and it's really happy!

I'd recommend PowerPoint for this, especially 2013, as you can save the presentation in not only in a .wmv video file but publish it onto a CD. Pretty handy! You won't get quality loss either.
