I get failure to print on Slideshow Expressions show I have created for a funeral.
Do you mean you're not able to burn the show that you've created to disc?
If that's the case, try this. Firstly, make sure you are using the correct disc, eg. DVD+R. Secondly, make sure that you have selected the writer drive and not the hard drive: After clicking on "Produce" and then "Burn to disc", a window appears with settings for you to choose from. At the place where it says "Write to", choose your writer drive - if it says "Hard Drive", your show will not be burned to disc. Thirdly, you should know that SlideShow Expressions seems to experience some problems related to photo size and project length. I've had this problem myself. I've been able to burn slideshow projects with between 300 and 390 photos in them, using the original size photos (as large as 1MB to over 2MB). However, when I tried to burn a project containing 466 photos (10 chapters), my writer wouldn't work. The problem was solved by reducing the size of my largest photos. I experimented with size, and eventually had all the photos in this project resized to under 500 KB each. It worked: I was able to burn to disc. The project had music and text and it looked great. Resizing doesn't necessarily mean that the quality of the photos in your project will drop. I used Microsoft Office Picture Manager to resize my photos and there is no visual difference between the originals and the photos in the project. Just remember to keep copies of the originals so you don't lose them. I then burned a Data CD with the original photos on them and added it to the project as an extra. Fourthly, I learned from Individual Software's technical support team (online) that when you use large photos and combine it with the option to archive your photos and music on the disc, the writer drive can fail to burn. Also: make sure that your computer meet all the requirements of the software - given on the product's box. I wish you all the best. 11407336
