Photo slide show on a CD

  User-324448 10:11 24 Sep 2003

Hello again. I have taken 175 digital photos and I want to give them to friends as a slide show on a CD, similar to XPs slide show. I know they can use a prog. like ACDsee but many may not have or want it. How can I do this

You can do it (usually) by using your burning software, Nero for example, although I think Nero has a limit on how many pictures you can have in the slide show. On the cover of the latest PC Advisor magazine the is a burning package called NTI CD-Maker, I think it will let you do it.

You don't say what your burning software is but Roxio CD creator definitely does it, it's how I put mine onto disc.

as an .exe file then others don't need the prog it was made with to view it.... that is the purpose of exe file... they are "executable"

You can make a slideshow exe with irfanview, free from click here.

Also, though I'm not sure if you can make an executable slideshow using the main prog ACDSee, the same company does produce a prog for this very purpose. It comes bundles with ACDSee if you buy the "powerpack, and is available to download for free trial.

Good luck,

i picked up a program a little while ago that enabled you to create a cd with a photo slide show along with your own customisable menus. i think it was ulead dvd menu or studio. without digging it out of my software collection i couldnt tell you!!!!

Have a look at "Chuckles Picture viewer", a freeware program, not used version 2 yet, but version 1 does what you want.... click here ...alB
