Fit photos to videowave production


Gig A.

Question

I scanned all my son's photo album pages (8 1/2x11" standard size paper) with 4-6 photo's per page as it would have taken me forever to scan each picture seperatly ( he has 9 photo albums, appx 75 pages per album, 4-6 photo's per page).

 

I created a slideshow/movie in videowave wth the 1st photo album (appx 60 pages wth 4-6 photo's per page).

When I burned this to a dvd and played it on my tv, most of the pages have a portion of the top/bottom cut off which in turn cuts some of the photo's either top or bottom off.

 

Is there ANY way to correct having a portion of each page cut off so all the photo's on each page (4-6 per page) are viewed correctly??

 

Thanks

 

George

Thanks for the link.. I'll give that a try, but ggrussell even said in his response it wasn't practical for alot of images. Like I mentioned, I have 9 photo albums, appx 60 pgs. per album, 4-6 pics each page.. Needless to say I have a ton of images to do..

 

 

 

The issue is due to TV overscan. Check out this post for a suggested solution.

George, any audio and video work takes time. I Imagine you are saving the albums for posterity. Think of how little work you are doing to keep something for several lifetimes.

 

The comment you quoted is for the overlay track method. You can do batch convert using image cropper. Takes about two minutes if you have all the images in one folder. You''ll have to rebuild the slide show with the new images. Just substitute the new one for the old one.

 

Since you are not experienced, I would not, at this point, rename the new images to the same name as the old images to try to get the program to think that the new images are the old images.

 

 

 

BTW, If you scanned the album pages, you could use a photo editing program to cut out each of the individual images. That way you will have only one image per page. You'll still have to get them into the TV safe zone.

 

I don't usually recommend the Slide Show Assistants but if you use the one under the photo tab, you can select the DVD projector transition and have control over the forward/back playing of the slide show. Remember you will not be able to use music or other transitions using this selection.
