I just returned from three weeks in India and I took over 600 photos. I
know that I can show them to friends using my camera and the TV. But 600
will put anybody to sleep. I want to select maybe 20-25 and show them in a
set sequence. Does anyone know of a device on the market that will let me
put them on a CD and show them on a TV that way?

Does your camera have a video output to TV? If so why not select the
20-25 pictures on your computer, and down load them to a memory card
on your pc, put it in your camera and use the camera to show the
slides. (resequence the numbers on the file names to get the right
order).

Paint Shop Album software has a function to make a video CD - CD with
video format that can be played in most DVD players. Just use any CD
burner on your pc to make the vCD. I've done on occasion and works
quite well. I've been "experimenting" with the Album software for
filing my photos and a really like the configuration and search
capabilities plus it's sharing features. While there are more
sophisticated products on the market, I find this quite versatile and
easy to return to - I don't search my photos very often. And more
important easy to add new categories and without losing any prior
information. I have one category set to "to print" and another set to
"printed". As I'm reviewing photos, if I decide to print a photo I
assign it to the "to print" cagtegory (or to vCD). When I decide to
download to the commercial printer, all I have to do is select that
category and the move it from the "to print" to "printed" when I get
the photos returned.

I like it better than integrated filing systems because hopefully I
can maintain the filing system independent of editors, etc.

Regards,
Roger

I've used Photodex. A well constructed show can be very impressive. I've
used it for quite a number of my clients.

Many of the newer DVD players can handle a series of jpg images
on a CD. Just pop it in and play. Nero can burn a
slide show (most burning software can). Irfanview may do
what you want. There are many options -- google for slideshow

Hi Ed,

Just burn the files to CD as a VCD using NERO or similar writing program,
and Bob's your uncle!

Cheers,
Jack

MyDVD which came bundled with my external LiteOn DVD burner does a nice job
of creating a cd (or dvd) slide show. Although my dvd player will handle
..jpg direct from cd, there is vertical distortion which I can eliminate by
resampling.

My very inexpenisve DVD-player will play JPEGs burned om a CD-ROM.
I think that is a common feature (look for "JPEG" in the list of
formats supported by the player). Just make sure they are
numbered in sequence, and the "next" button on the remote will
brimg up the next image. All you need to to this is a CD-ROM-
burner (which are standard with PCs these day) - and a DVD-player
that understands JPEG.

If you want to do something more fancy, there is a number of
programs that will let you burn a sequence of images onto a
DVD, add captions, dissolves and music. This will give your
show a more professional look, but you need a DVD-burner and
said software in addition to the DVD-player.

Hint. A TV is a low resolution device (640 x 480 px, 0.3 Mpx - unless
you have one them newfangled hi-res TVs). You should downsample each
image to this size before you burn it onto your presentation CD.

Large images will work - the DVD player will automatically resize
anything to fit snugly on the screen. But if you load your CD with
5 Mpx images, each will take a long time to load (at least they do
on my DVD-player, but YMMV).

Sandisk makes a 6 in 1 digital photo viewer that ecost.com is selling
for $19.99. The thing takes six different memory cards, will do
slideshows or let you show them one at a time, will rotate pictures,
will delete pictures, has a remote control, and will hook up to any set
with a video in. I bought one a while back, and for the money, it's one
of the slickest devices I have ever owned.
