SlideShow

Hey All,

Quick question if I may,

What is teh best program for running picture slide shows from a PC ?

Basically its my mums 60th B'day and I have a laptop that is going to be connected to a plasma. I am currently scanning old photos on to my PC and I want a program that will allow me to run a slide show on loop for the evening.

Any programs come to mind ?

Is that good for pictures / Jpegs ?

I use power point for presentations at work but not picture slide shows really.

Windows Picture and Fax viewer (built into to XP i think) and there is something similar (if not the same app) on Vista.

From Windows XP and later, put all the photos into one folder, click once on the first photo and select slide show from the menus. I can't remember on XP but Vista allows you to loop the slide show and set the time between pictures.

If you have PowerPoint, it might allow a little more sophistication.

I'm sure you can just put them into one folder and use them as the screen saver - that would save loading any extra software or adding them to powerpoint.
