Windows Live Slide Show

by paulmari501 / November 7, 2010 4:47 PM PST

I was pleasantly surprised with the sophistication of Windows Live slide show capabilities. I found several advantages over Photoshop Elements 9 and Adobe Lightroom. and it's free. Everything is wonderful with one exception: We have to choose an aspect ratio, such as 4:3 or 16:9. The problem is that both aspect ratios cut off my pictures, either on top/bottom or on the sides. Will Windows Live ever permit me to output in full HD and 16:9 ratio without cutting off my pictures?

an option for each photo or video file where you should be able to adjust the output, when saving it?

There is an option to change output for each file you select to save.

Thank you very much for your reply, however, I have no idea what you mean. I have 320 jpeg photos in the 40-minute slide show in Windowa Live Movie Maker. What do you mean when you say "there is an option to change output for each file you select to save"? Output where? Save where? Which program are you talking about? Thanks again.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
