Hi, I have many nature photographs and my friends and family have asked for a slideshow of them. I have received slideshows through my emails of various sorts, and I would like to know how to have approx a dozen or more photos of my own made into a slide show with very little MB ( as I am limited )and send them as an attachment through email, and even better with music. Any help please?

If you have Irfanview you can create a slideshow (second icon on the Toolbar). You can configure the time you wish to ratain each photograph on screen.

Hi, I have managed to actually make a small slide show on the Microsoft Photo story I downloaded, and it works great, but the only question I want to ask is, is there a timer somewhere on the software as to how long the photo is able to remain before it follows on to the next, 3, 5, 8 secs ?

Have a look *Narrating your pictures and customizing motion*

To specify the number of seconds that a picture without narration will appear in the clip, click that picture in the film strip, and then click Customize Motion. For more information about the options in the Customize Motion dialog box, see Customizing motion and selecting transitions.

Irfanview, as I mentioned earlier, has the means to adjust slide changing timing.
