Roxio Online/photoshow 6 Questions

Question

A couple of questions before I buy.

 

1. I want to be sure that I can create a photoshow offline using Photoshow 6 and then upload it to Roxio Online (photoshow.com) and have it show there without any more work?

 

2. I want to confirm that when creating captions for the photos and videos clips the caption data would also end up in the metadata of each file and that if there was already text in the metadata it would be used for the caption. Is this true?

 

thx....

I think you can.

 

I unplugged the internet connection and tried to create a photoshow using the desktop software of Roxio Photoshow. As I go along in the creation of the project I kept getting the nagging popup message nelow. I just clicked the Ignore button. You will be able to save your project. When you are online, you can then upload that project.

Okay thanks, but after you upload the finished photoshow is there any more work to be done on the show on Roxio Online or do you just push a button and it plays. I'm worried about having to redo parts of the photoshow after its been uploaded?

 

thx...

All you have to do is choose the "post" option and it uploads.

 

If you notice any problems afterward, you can edit the show on your desktop and re-upload. If the show still has the same name, it will overwrite the older version online.

 

Try a test show of 10-15 photos and try to upload it. Then try to edit it and re-upload. You can always just delete a show from your site if you don't like it.

Hi,

Don't know if this will add any positives to the discussion, but I've had great success with creating photoshows both within the desktop versions (both Roxio, and the Photoshow version 5 originally purchased from Simple Star, converted to Roxio), as well as creating on line at the Roxio web site. If you create a show from the desktop and post it, the only difference will be in the icon representing your show, if you used the Roxio desktop software. If you create the show from the Photoshow version 5 desktop software, the icon you chose to represent your show, as well as all of your music, captions, transitions and clip art will remain intact. I have successfully edited shows that I'd posted on line, created in either program, by changing the order, or adding clip art ("stickers") to the final posted version, and just clicked "share" to repost the edited versions. So far, so good. I give Roxio credit for continually trying to improve their version. Thanks.
