Using SlideShow with Digital Cameras
Using SlideShow to make an image show with pictures you've taken with a
digital camera is easy! We'll briefly discuss how easy it is to make a show from
images, make a stand-alone slide show, and finally how to distribute the slide
show as a single file that you can send to others.
Making the Show
Take the pictures.
Download the pictures from the camera, using the software provided with the
camera, into a directory on your computer.
Edit the images, if desired, using image editing software.
Make a show from all the slides in a directory, by selecting the directory
in the "Make Show from Directory" under the File->New menu.
You can add and remove images, edit slide order and timing in SlideShow's
That's it. All the images should now be in a single show that are ready to
be played in SlideShow.
Images can be used directly
from your digital camera.
Making the Show Stand-Alone
You can also use SlideShow to make a Web-based show. A
Web-based show can be posted
on the web so that others can see it or can be
sent to friends, colleagues or customers to run without any special
software other than their regular web browser.
Make the show following the steps above.
Save the show as a Web-based show (File->Save As->Web Show).
SlideShow will then create the necessary show files.
You can now run the web show from the directory by opening the 'StartShow'
file created by SlideShow.
Sending the Show to Others
Distribution of the Web-based slide show as a single self-extracting
Zip-based file is also straightforward. Contact Beagle
Software for more information on using tools to distribute your slide shows.
