any idea if i can create a basic slideshow for about 60 pics that i can attach to an email for the recipient to view? OR, what is the best format to send said 60 pics as attachments to an email. tried jpg but wanadoo said no way, too big.

No suggestions regarding an actual slideshow, but if you're running XP you can either resize them with XP click here, or use Picasa to do the same plus lots more click here

click here does just that 60 pix show will come in at less than a megabyte.
It comes in as a trial that has features knobbled and you pay for a release code. about 15 quid

I am not sure now if the Webslide show is included in the trial - download it and see

If you are running XP, you could use Windows MovieMaker 2, to create a slideshow. From memory, one of the options when saving the finished "movie", is for e-mail. This should ensure a relatively small file size.

HTH.

You could always use Power Point; load up the file as you would prepare any powerpoint presentation then send the whole file. Power point also has the advantage that it can be viewed full screen as a slide show and everybody who uses Windows has it.

"Power point ....everybody who uses Windows has it" - I don't think so, it's part of the Ms office suite!

I stand corrected.

I would still like SuperFrankieLamps to consider this software though because of the reasons already stated (in my work place, virtually every individual sends some powerpoint slide show as a christmas greeting ranging from cuddly polar bears to dubiously shaped snow sculptures!).

Yes, I know but it does get tiresome doesn't it!

True, especially when you've received your third slide show displaying a phallic looking snowball and at the same time wishing you merry christmas just after the kids have gone back to school in September !
