Question

Does anyone know how to size photo's to fit the video viewing screen, I have search every where to get this info. I realize one can crop but if you don't have the viewing area visible, or know the size.

I just don't want any of the black area to show up on the video with the photos. Hope I don't sound confusing.

 

First let me apologize I didn't realize I was posting on someone else posting(did not mean to hijack)

 

I have Windows 7 intel core-64 bit, dell studio xps memory 8.gb

I do have the latest version of Roxio Creator 2011

Read about TV safe zone first.

 

You can change the background to any color you want.

 

If the videos are 16 by 9 and the images are 4 by 3 (or there about) how would you propose to fit a square image (almost) to fit a rectangular box and not have distortion? Even worse if you take the image in portrait mode.

 

Please post a screen shot of what you are seeing to help us understand.

It is not confusing at all but it is impossible...

 

Video (TV's) are 4:3 or 16:9 those are ratios and LOCKED by the laws of mathmatics. You have to take your pictures in those ratios in order for them to fill the screen and still maintain the composition you wanted.

 

But if you shoot and produce in 16:9 and someone plays it on a 4:3 TV, you got borders!

 

Even commercal Blu-rays no longer conform to these ratios and you see black bars on your TV...

 

I just ignore it, gave up on chasing my tail years ago ;)

 

There are some programs that will produce a border around your pictures, although you can do this with Roxio too but all you are doing is changing the color of the black borders. Likewise some will "fill the screen" but the cost is they crop out areas that 'verfill' in one direction or the other... Goes back to the fact that you can't change a ratio.
