Creating A Slide Show From Photosuite

Question

We have scanned 300 photos of my son for a slide show we want to play at his 30th Birthday bash. We have edited each picture, added text etc however when we try and create a slideshow the other products in the Creator 10 suite do not recognise the DMSP format and it appears the only way to move forward is save each photo in another format like jpeg.

 

Does anyone know how we can produce a slide show in DMSP format or do you know a faster was of saving all 300 photos to jpeg without having to do each one individually.

 

We are surprised that the different packages do not work with other.

 

We hope someone can help please

From EMC 9 manual (I know the forum is EMC 10 but definition should be the same)

DMSP is PhotoSuite's native file format for edited photos and projects. This format retains layer information and allows you to “undo” changes you have made. With DMSP, both the original settings and the edits (such as transformations or special effects) are stored.

For example, if you crop a photo and save it in DMSP format, you can reverse the edit later, retrieving the deleted portion.

PhotoSuite's native file format is dmsp, I believe. Odd, I just tried to create a slide show (assistant) using that format and there doesn't seem to be a way to add them.

 

I don't use that format often, but VideoWave should accept them. I believe VW even real-time updates the images if you make changes to them in PhotoSuite. You could give it a try. You can batch format change from Media Manager, although I haven't tried it with dmsp files.

 

EDIT: Doesn't seem to allow you to add dmsp files to batch convert either. Try adding them to VideoWave, and making your slide show from there. I just tried it and didn't have any trouble adding them.

What suite program are you using to create the slideshow. Videowave (which is what you should be using) lists dmsp as an acceptable input type. The slideshow wizards on the other hand may not recognize the dmsp format since they are dumbed-down, limited utilities.

You could of course add all you original photos in Videowave and do all your edits, texts, etc there.

Walt & Kari get the Nail-on-Head award!

 

VideoWave is the way to go:

The Kid gets 1/2 credit, right on the dmsp but no answer for Bob :lol:

 

And I get NO Credit for stirring the pot! :(

 

As a side note saving photos in an editor's native format is a poor practice unless that is all you work in and don't plan to distribute them.
