Does The Size Of The Jpg's Matter?

Question

Does the size of the photos matter on how they come out on the TV? We keep upgrading camera's and we now have a 10 Megapixel one and a 7 Mega and the photos on the screen appear like they are being zoomed in on. In other words not all of the picture is displayed. Any tips or tricks?

 

Using Creator 2009, VideoWave and MyDVD to create.

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply. :D

 

I'm not using the slideshow wizard just VideoWave. I'm new to Creator 2009, but this is the 3rd version of Roxio Creator I've purchased and used. I've used Creator 10 and upgraded to 2009 to see if it would work better with my Vista computer(s). I've noticed this in Slideshow's created in both versions.

 

I was wondering if it is the same thing that happens if you select a photo for your desktop computer that has a dimension of 3000 x 2000 and the monitor display setting is only 1280 x 1024 - the monitor will only show a portion of the photo. 1280 x 1024 from the center of the photo. It is similar to doing a digital zoom I'm thinking.

 

So what I'm seeing on our HD TV screen is a "cropped" version of the original; not a huge difference but it doesn't show all of the photo. Not a big deal or show stopper I was just wondering if there were some Tips or Tricks rather than saving all the pictures as a smaller size.

Ah, that. LOL That is a function of how TV works. There is always a portion that is 'outside' the viewing area. This goes way back to how TV was invented. For regular CRT TVs, this area can be as large as 15% or more. For HDTVs, it is more like 5% or less.

 

The only way around this 'phenomena', is to add a border around in an amount equal or greater to the the TV overscan to each of the images you need to see full frame.

 

There is a feature in Videowave to show this area that won't be viewed. It's an icon just above the preview.
