software for creative slide shows

Postby Barb O » Sun Mar 08, 2009 11:56 pm

I am currently attempting to respond to someone over on the elementsvillage.com forums who wants to do creative slide shows. This person currently uses Picasa for organizing and simple edits on photos. He has been using Videowave (EMC9) for slideshows but wants something better. He has purchased Photoshop and Premiere Elements 7.

Now I have a suspicion that ProShow would actually be a better fit for this person. However, since I don't have ProShow - can some one assist by either posting comments here or respond over on the elements village forums? The thread is at
http://www.elementsvillage.com/forums/s ... hp?t=45344

Note that he does have one specific dilemma that needs a solution
(I think that either PSE Editor adding canvas or PE scaling image to Safe Area would work - what about ProShow?)
"I always have several photos in which the crucial image extends to very near the edge of the photo and would be truncated when shown on TV (I burn my slideshows on DVDs). I use Photosuite to create a blank canvas, apply an appropriate color to the canvas, center the relevant photo on the canvas, then reduce the edges of the canvas to create a frame, a frame that does not intrude on the photo at all. On TV, the frame is truncated, but the photo is intact. Is there a way of accomplishing the same outcome (intact photo on TV) in PSE7
?"

Hi Barb....

I posted a reply back in the Elements forum. Basically I'd recommend Proshow and it will do what he wants if I understand him correctly.
