My friend is not very computer literate and I'm helping him put together a slide show or movie, I'm not sure what he wants. He has files from three people's cameras and they are all saved at different resolutions.
Most pictures have been downloaded to his PC. I plan to load the rest and leave them all at their current resolutions until it comes to creating the CD/DVD. They are currently pulling which files they want on the CD/DVD. I know their TV is HD, but they will be giving CDs to family members who may not have HD TVs.
SO, have you all found it best to created 2 sets of CDs/DVDs, one for High Def, and the other for Standard def, or just default to Standard? And since these will only be displayed on their computer or TV screens, which resolution should be used in each case? And I'm assuming save to jpg?
Thanks for your help!

Thread: Helping friend with camera files
If you're making standard DVDs playable on standard DVD players, then you have no choice. 720x480 will be the resolution for all.
You may want to investigate using DVDSlideshowGUI. It accepts video as well as pictures. For best quality you'll want the pictures as BMPs and not JPGs.
Thank you Manono.
I just found out that what they've done in the past is take the files to Walmart and have them placed on a Photo CD. When they display them for others, it must default to slide show as they didn't know what that was. They did mention that "it" was too slow and they did not find a way to click thru the pictures.
I have to believe there is a was to click through as quickly as you want, but I've not done that myself. Is this why one would make a "movie" instead?
Is there any batch processing software (free) at can be used to turn a folder of folders of .jpg to a folder of folders of .bmp, or is that a file by file task?
