Download photos to disc.

by wild punto / February 20, 2010 9:38 PM PST

I am running windows XP on a hybrid PC and am trying to download my holiday photos to CD. When I download, folowing the instuctions of the download Wizard all it does is download them in file format so they wont play back on my DVD player. How can I download the actual photos to playback on my DVD player? The DVD is a fairly new LG Blu-Ray player. Thanks Wild Punto.

Re: downloading photo's
by Kees Bakker / February 20, 2010 10:03 PM PST

Does it matter it's a hybrid PC? If it was a non-hybrid PC, would the problem be different, or the same? And, what IS a hybrid PC?

Is this a standard Windows download wizard, or one that came with your camera (for example, a program from Canon or Fuji or Sony)? Now we're talking that, what camera?

Now for the file format: most likely formats are jpg or raw. We don't know. You're the only one who can tell us. Raw might be manufacturer dependent. Does the software from the manufacturer offer conversion options?

Assuming you managed to get those photo's on your hard disk, what program do you use to view them? What program do you use to burn them to CD?

Now for the DVD-player. What photo formats does it support for viewing. Should be in the user manual, and might depend on the exact model. Here again, you're the only one who can tell.

I assume you want to play the DVD on a set-top DVD player that is attached to your television.
A DVD that you can give to your friends.

I have made about 50 of these.
Two were wedding DVDs.

If you want to produce a Blu-Ray disk, you must have a Blu-Ray burner on your computer.

If you just have a DVD burner on the computer, you can still produce a standard DVD that will play on your Blu-Ray player.
And it can produce a picture that is almost as good as Blue-Ray.

To do what you want, you need a Slide Show program.
One that can produce a picture that will fill your HD television screen must produce output in 16:9 aspect ratio.

I have been using ProShow Gold by Photodex, in Austin, Texas.
You can download a fully working trial copy and use it free for 30 days.
The trial copy of the program will put a watermark on your output.
