Question about Individual SlideShow Expressions

1 Answer

Cannot get it onto DVD

I made a slide show very easily using Slideshow expressions but now can't figure out how to burn it to DVD. I tried once; but it didn't work and it was kind of complicated. I used DVD+R discs. Should I be using a Cd? It's just slides, with effects and music and text. I would even settle burning it to a Cd to be used on a computer, but DVD and TV would be better, though, for my non-techy family members. Thanks.

Yes, use DVD+R. Make sure that you choose the correct options: After clicking on "Produce" and then "Burn to disc", take a look at the window that appears. One of the choices: you can either burn to hard drive or to the writer drive. Chose your writer drive and continue. Also, SlideShow Expressions can develop problems when a project is too big or when the photos are too large. What typically happens, is that the burning process stops at step 5 (the actual burning) and does'nt want to continue. If this is the case, experiment with photo size. I used Microsoft Office Picture Manager to resize photos. Resizing doesn't necessarily reduce the quality of the photos. There is really no visual difference between my original photos and those that feature in my slideshows. In my case I had to resize to under 500 KB, but then, my project was extremely large: 466 photos; maybe you don't have to go so low. Experiment with sizes. Don't give up; it's a really great product.

How do I burn multiple slide shows to DVD using Roxio 2011


Create the multiple slide shows and store them in a directory that you have created on your hard disk just for those slide shows. When all the slide shows are present in that directory, start Roxio, use the Add Files function and go to that directory and select all of the files you want on the DVD. Name the DVD to something that indicates what is on it and start the Create/Burn to make your DVD.

Is there a limit to how many slides can go into a slide show -- it keeps deleting slides after 85 --


Best debidell

That doesn't sound right. I've definitely made slide shows of 100 slides and more and burned them successfully too. I usually create projects divided into chapters of about 50 photos each, though, for example, my largest project so far: about 460 photos - 5 chapters of 50 photos each on disc1; 4 chapters of 50 photos each and 1 chapter of about 10 photos on disc 2. However, I have also burned projects that only had one chapter (i.e. one slide show icon on my menu page), for example one with 105 photos.
What you're reporting sounds strange. Do you mean that the slides get deleted during the burning process (that it is only missing from the burned disc), or do you mean that the slides get deleted while you're still compiling the show? However, I recommend the following:
1. If you don't mind breaking your slide show up into smaller parts (chapters), create a show containing about 50 slides, then another with 50, etc. For each slide show you would click on "Create slide show" and each would have its own chapter icon on your menu page. These slide shows will then run continuously, the one following the other. The benefit is that you (or the person the project is meant for) can then more easily access a specific area or slide in your project if so prefered, but also, breaking up your project into smaller parts seem to assist the burning process.
2. Contact the technical support team for SlideShow Expressions at individualsoftware.com. They've helped me out in the past and will get into touch with you within 48 hours of stating your case. You have to register your product with them before you can get help (computer and programme particulars, etc.), but it doesn't take all that long and it really is worth trying out. Don't hesitate - it is a FREE service. They can respond via email or even phone.

I've picked up a few pointers along the way when it comes to SlideShow Expressions:
a) Large photos (1MB and more) can disrupt the burning process - a classic symptom being that the burning process stops during the actual writing of the files (step 5?). I have successfully burned projects containing photos of 1MB and more, but often this is the reason why burning might fail or you end up with a defective end product. Don't be afraid to resize your photos. Yes, it takes up valuable time, but experimenting with photo sizes can save a project. I've been using Microsoft Office Picture Manager to resize my photos to about 400 / 500 KB per photo (or even smaller), but in the end you have to see what works for you. Look, if 1MB or larger works for you, go for it. But there really is no visual difference in the end product: I cannot tell that I'm looking at resized photos and nobody else will either. Of course, I like to add a second disc (CD-ROM) to my projects, containing the original photo sizes so family members can use these for printing, etc.
b) One of the things that make SlideShow Expessions so successful, is the fact that you can make quite lenghty projects. This however, may lead to issues resulting in failure to burn correctly (or even at all) to disc. It helps to divide your project into chapters.
c) The option to also archive your photos and music files on the disc is a great feature, but it has been linked to burning failures, especially when your project is very large / your photos are quite large (a and b).
d) When including video clips in your project, be sure not to use files that are very large. The end product may work well on computer, but it may also cause problems when that same disc is viewed on TV, as some DVD players will not be able to handle large video clips.

I hope all of this can be of help. Do contact individualsoftware.com should this issue persist. I wish you all the best.

How do you burn a dvd? I clicked burn to dvd but it's not working


Two things: 1. Make sure that you chose the writer drive (burn to DVD) and not "hard drive" in the options window that appears when clicking on "Produce" and then on "Burn to disc". 2. SlideShow Expressions can have problems when the photos are too large and when the project your trying to burn is quite large as well. What is too large? I can only speak from own experience. I found that once a project gets into the range of 400 or more photos (total) my writer fails to write. (I've burned projects containing up to 388 successfully; photos at original size) However, this can be solved by resizing your photos. I have a project with 466 photos (10 chapters) that wouldn't burn to disc. I then resized the photos so that everyone were under 500 KB. It worked: burning is now successful. Resizing doesn't necessarily mean that the quality of your photos will drop. I used Microsoft Office Picture Manager and, really, visually there is no difference between the original photos and the resized photos in the slideshow project. Experiment with photo size. Maybe another size works for you. Also, you could be using the wrong type of disc. Try DVD+R.

The trial side show program i downloaded will not burn the side show to dvd


The trial version will only allow you to burn up to 36 pictures.
Your slide show probably exceeded this limit. Once you are satisfied with using it (under the limit) you can purchase the full product and receive a registration and be able to have an almost full disc of pictures in your slideshow.
