Hi. I've just bought a new DVD-rw drive and some discs and want to try creating a DVD containing all of my photo's, for backup and also I'd like to view the pictures on my DVD player, ideally with a thumbnail manu of the images which would be clickable to enlarge each pic...
If I just create a data DVD will I have menu's to view the image files when viewed on the player? Or do I have to get hold of some extra photo gallery software to create what I want?
backup and viewing, it is better to separate these two tasks.
if you view picture from data DVD, it can only be done if your DVD player can handle jpg files, not many can do this, some support directory structure, some do not, under directory, you can navigate to the file you want to view.
Generally, it takes long time to open each file becuase your picture's resolution is high and file is big. TV's resolution is only 720x576 (DVD quality), so it is better to resize all your photo to this resolution just for showing purpose. small files will be quick to open and display
the best way to view pictures is to produce slideshow movies using program such as proshow gold click here
