I'm using "Magix Photos on CD & DVD deluxe 6" to compile slideshows. Does anyone know how to insert a plain coloured panel at the beginning of the slide sequence? I want to put the titles etc on to this, but all I seem to be able to do is insert text over an actual photo?
I've tried the Magix Forum for help - but everyone seems to have gone on holiday or something!!!
I do exactly this. In your photo program open a new blank canvas and fill it with a single colour, then just save as a jpeg or similar. You can also make nice backgrounds for titles by using gradient fills.
I like your idea - but as I'm a bit of a novice at this - can you take me further? "photo program" - what might this be - and how do I "open a new blank canvas"? Sorry to take up your time - but I'd appreciate your help. Thanks
I use Potoshop to import a photo and then clear the picture and fill the frame with colour, then save it as a title photo (eg. My Trip To London) to my desktop. Then in the slide show program I import it as another photo into the correct position. This works well for me.
There really is no need to inport a photo in Photoshop or Paint. Just goto file>new and click OK in the 'New' box that comes up. You then have a blank canvas that you can fill with any colour or gradient that you wish.
BT: Thanks for that tip. I will give it a try next time I make up a slide show. Last year was the first time I attempted to make a slide show so I did it the way I thought of. Now I know better. Thanks.
