Photo Slideshow
« on: August 03, 2010, 10:30:06 PM »
I am shooting a corporate event next week, the client has asked for a laptop or screen to display the pictures taken so their guests / employees can place orders.

In the past I have used the windows slideshow function but find that the colours and general sharpness is pretty poor. I wondered if there was a better piece of software available that for the job?

Thanks in advance for any advice.
Rgds,
Dave

LightRoom creates an exportable slideshow. I wanted to show you a html example, but I don't have any online at the moment. LR also creates Adobe PDF ones like this. Adobe LR is available for free for a 30 day trial period.

Another option is to use a free account at PhotoShelter (full screen slideshows are available). I think SmugMug may have a similar option, or else Photo.Net.

As for colour, perhaps the monitor / computer has not been calibrated. Check out the Spyder system. Not being sharp, might have to do with the file sizes you were using... possibly. As for the Windows slideshow function, I never use it, so I don't really know.

Thanks Andrew,

I have Lightroom on my main pc. I did not want to buy another licensed piece of software if I could help it but it looks the best thing for the job and something that I am used to using.

Cheers,
Dave
