I would cheat.

As I understand it, Photodex Presenter is a browser plugin that allows images to be displayed in a browser window as a slide show.

If you are unable to 'right click' each image and select "Save Image As" to your hard drive, then I would cheat.

I would Pause the presentation for each image I wanted, then "Print Screen" on the keyboard. Open the saved image in your favored Image Editor, and print from there.

Beware any copyright issues if you plan to distribute the photos.

Have already tried both things you mention. Neither work.

I'm surprised Screen Print doesn't work as all it does is 'captures' the screen.

What happens when you try that? I should have mentioned that a screen print only copies the image to the clipboard. You then have to open your image editor, (I use Paint), then goto Edit > Paste, to paste the image into the editor. Then crop it as you wish and then save it.

Nothing.Just wondered if there is a program to open this slide show. These are 35mm slides that are put on this program by a family member. I even called Photodex and asked them. I have seen the question about doing this on the internet with no good workable answer.

Since two things are clear now.

1. The family member has the files, why not ask for them?

2. Photodex has a free trial for Proshow Gold, why not try it?

1. Family member can't find the 35mm slides that are on the skide show.
2. Proshow Gold does not open photodex presenter to extract files or photos.
Have downloaded numerous programs that do not work.

They created it from some things. Ask for those.

As to screen capture, if print screen is down, look for alternate screen cap software. Too many to give any a nod.
