Recommendations for new users
If you have a way that works for you then move on and look at the Galleries.


1.For a simple show using only one format of slide

a.Decide on the format

b.Create a project sub directory

c.Create sound and pictures directories


d.Select candidate pictures using Bridge


e. Export to your new pictures directory using Image processor

My projector, laptop and the club projector 1280 x 1024 with JPG quality 8 works OK for me. But! Note that 1400 x 1024 is becoming the de facto standard in higher competitions
If you don’t shrink the pictures the computer has a lot of work to do and you risk losing the synchronisation between pictures and sound


f.Adjust pictures as required

g.Fill any unused part of your chosen format with black

h.Sharpen if you wish

i.Create show

j.Enjoy results


If you want to include Vertical and Horizontal versions in your show continue onto next page.
