TY....Will do but have little confidence in microsoft.

Any recommendations for alternatine software that contains a TRANSITION that slowly zooms in and/or out of the entire photo ?

FYI.. I also tried movie maker and that does retain a selected transition BUT there is no transition in movie maker equivelant to "animated" in media center. There are transitions in movie maker that zoom in and or out BUT they do it from a portion of the photo which looks ridiculous. Even if I decided on one of the many transitions in movie maker I can't find a way to adjust the speed at which the photos are shown. They go by too fast at about 5 sec. and I find that it's just too fast for proper viewing especially for title or credits. Anyway to slow it down ? TY

A collection of photos CAN NOT DO THIS. If you converted this to some Video then it would. Have you tried Photodex's ProShow Gold?

Pan and Zoom

In reply to: burning photo dvds/ transition issue

Those are not transitions but are incorporated into the showing of a slide.
Commonly called the Ken Burns effect.
(named after the man who does those wonderful documentaries on public television).

Transitions are the dead time between slides.

As Bob said.....take a look at Proshow Gold at

You can download a full functioning trial copy for free.
The free trial copy will put a Photodex watermark on all of your output, but all features are available for you to try.

The Zoom feature lets you zoom into/out-of a photo as it is displayed.
The Pan feature lets you pan across the photo in any direction.
You can Zoom and Pan at the same time.

By using three copies of the same photo with zero transition time between photos, you can zoom into a photo then pan across it and then zoom back out. All one smooth effect.
