Thankyou very much Jim for your explanation and screenshots of how else i can get into ''Create a slideshow'' I can do it now without actually opening the video editing programme ''Videowave''. My bone of contention has been that the tutorial clearly shows entry to ''Create a Slideshow'' via the ''Create'' options in the Photo section. This is not available to me on my copy and Roxio agree with me that it should be and are looking into it. Now though you have shown me, through your patients that i can access it via :File, Photo, and then create slideshows. This means i can create a slideshow in one programme and then send it in to videowave if i choose and not have to have both programmes open at once. Less drain of resources on my old computer which is an old Fujitsu-Siemens Scaleo P, 7 years old but going strong. I am beginning to enjoy this video editing of many years of old family videos and photo's and putting them on You Tube for the family so, i think it's probably about time i invested in a new faster computer. Transfering old VHS tapes and rendering video on mine slows it sometimes almost to a stop.
Anyway once again, many thank's for your patience and time.
Regards, Len Scott.
