Question about Individual SlideShow Expressions

Music files added to slideshow being deleted

I have no problem creating a slideshow with Slideshow Expressions software, however, when I try to return to the slideshow at a later date to burn more copies, it tells me that the music files are no longer attached and asks me if I want to relink the music files. The music is still on my computer, but I'm unable to find it to have it put back on the slideshow. Any ideas on how to fix this issue will be greatly appreciated.

I cannon figure out how to add music from my computer to the slide show....please help me....I have 5 songs on my desktop and I cannot seem to figure out how to get them to slideshow...


Best jbannon257

There could be a number of reasons why you're having trouble adding music files to your slide shows. First I'll lay out the procedure and afterwards I'll give some hints / a link to individualsoftware.com where problems with audio files are discussed.

The procedure (adding music files using SlideShow Expressions):
The programme opens and you are automatically in tab 1: "Add Media".
Click on "Create New Slide Show". Click on "Add Photos"; tell the programme where the photos are, select them, insert them, change their positions if necessary.
Now:
1. Click on "Next" at the bottom of the screen.
2. At "Soundtrack", click "Select Audio Files", then tell the programme where the music files are located on your computer, click to highlight a specific music file, click on "Open". The music file you selected now appears in the Soundtrack window. Repeat this until all the music files you want appear in the Soundtrack window. (You can delete any of them by clicking to highlight any specific file and then click on the little rubbish can icon.) As you go along, the total audio time for the slide show / chapter is displayed as well as the "Duration of Slide Show".
3. In the "Duration" section, you have the option to set the length of time you want per slide (seconds) - usually 8 to 10 seconds is best. (All your slides will follow this instruction; you can't set the duration of individual slides to a different time.) At "Auto-Fit to Soundtrack", you alter the duration of the slides to fit the length of the soundtrack. (This cancels out the previous seconds-per slide setting.) You must therefore choose music tracks that, when added together, will approximately span the whole length of the slide show and then you can fine-tune this by clicking the "Auto-Fit to Soundtrack" option.
4. When you are satisfied with your choice of music tracks and the length of your slide show, click on "Finish".

Issues with music files when using SlideShow Expressions
A.
According to the User Guide (section 3-3) - included on the install disc as a pdf file - the supported audio formats are: mp3, wma, wav, ra. Make sure that your computer also meets all of the requirements (on the box).
B.

Photo & Video Expressions is not compatible with audio files that have been protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) functionality. Most audio files purchased online through Internet music retailers like iTunes, Urge, or Rhapsody are encrypted with some form of DRM. Similarly, audio files that have been extracted from a CD or DVD (the process known as "ripping") using certain media applications (iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc.) often have default settings that encrypt the files extracted.

There is no way to used DRM audio files purchased from online music retailers with Photo & Video Expressions. However, if you want to used music and audio files that you have extracted from your CD collection, then all you have to do is change the ripping setting in your media application before you extract the files to your computer.
Go to the following site to read about how to change your ripping settings:

http://www.individualsoftware.com/support/frequently_asked_questions.html

Type your question OR (below):

"Photo & Video Creativity": choose "SlideShow Expressions" from drop-down menu, click "Go".

A window appears with options on problems, e.g. "Why aren't my audio files showing?"; "Why won't my music files work?" Click to read.
The best of luck to you. From: 11407336.

Software will not burn a slideshow to a DVD on my Lenovo Y560 Ideapad laptop. It doesn't even see the DVD RW drive.


Hi

I've also had the problem (only once or twice though) where the software apparently doesn't pick up my writer drive, only giving the option to burn to hard drive. In my case this seems to have been a bug that was resolved by exiting the programme and then starting it up again.

However, should this problem persist, I recommend contacting Individual Software's website for technical support - a Google search will find it quickly. Assistance is free, though you have to register your software with them first. They helped me to sort out a problem I had.

SlideShow Expressions is great and I've burned many successful slideshows. However, the software has a few bugs and from time to time issues can come up.
Of course, the User's Guide can be of great help - some people fail to notice that it is included on the install disc (pdf format).

I know what it's like to be frustrated with software when you're working with something that's suppose to be fun - photos. So, I'd like to give a few pointers when working with SlideShow Expressions.
1. The software handles large photos fine, but sometimes when a slideshow includes too many large photos (say photos of 2MB or more), it may struggle and give you a "fail to burn" message.
I've had to resize photos in the past (using Microsoft Picture Manager) to make life easier for the software (and myself). If this happens, you'll have to experiment with sizes: start with resizing your largest photos and then see how the software responds. Resizing doesn't seem to have an effect on the quality of your project; really, I couldn't tell the difference.
2. A great thing about SlideShow Expressions is that you can make quite lengthy projects, something that most commercially available software doesn't allow. I regularly create projects that contain 300 to almost 500 photos, divided into multiple chapters. However, the longer your project, the greater the chance of some bug spoiling your fun. I've mainly encountered problems in projects with around 400 photos and more.
3. The option to archive the original photos and music files on the DVD as well is great. However, as technical support informed me, this can give you "fail to burn" messages when your project is too large. So watch out for that.

Once again, I recommend contacting the technical support team at the Individual Software website. At first I hesitated, but many projects later I'm glad I did.

Good luck. From: 11407336.

  9. Click the checkbox for each track to rip, and then click the Import CD button in the lower right corner of the iTunes window.

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
