Full screen photographs

  Yimbo 16:32 10 Jan 2005

When I view the images from my digital camera (stored in "My Picures") as a slide show, they appear approx. size 8" X 6". Is there any way they can be "full screen"?

Hi Yimbo, when I click on "View as a slide show" they automatically open in a full screen, I have not changed any setting's since I installed XP so I don't know why this is happening, not much help I'm afraid. Someone will be along in a moment, probably like waiting for a bus:-)

What resolution are they taken at?

This will determine the size that they are shown at.

Hi Yimbo

Open "My Pictures" then Click on, File >Preview

What programme are you using to view them as a slideshow.

Try Irfanview - free download from:

I'm sure it depends on the size you actually took the photos at. I take mine at 2560 x 1920 and they appear full screen on a slideshow, however, if I crop them they appear with black edges.

I take mine at 1600x1200 to solve the same problem

Another way if your using XP is to open "my pctures" and expand "picture Tasks" on the left and then click "view as slide show"
