Question

PICTURES TAKEN IN THE VERTICAL POSITION REQUIRE 90 DEGREE ROTATION WHEN PLACED IN THE FOLDER FOR VIEWING. UPON BURNING A CD THOSE PICTURES ARE ROTATED BACK INTO THE HORIZONTAL POSITION SO THAT THE PERSON IS NOW LYING ON SIDE. HOW CAN I PREVENT THIS ROTATION INTO THE HORIZONTAL PROJECTION AS THE BUNING PROCEEDS?

 

WHAT IS THE BEST PROGRAM IN 2010 FOR CREATION OF A CD, NOT A DVD?

Umm... let's back up a bit. What folder requires that you rotate them? Or do you simply mean that to properly view these pictures you need to rotate them? If so, then you need to do the rotating in your favorite image editor, and resave the image in that orientation.

If you open the picture, rotate it as you wish, and resave it using your image editor, this will solve your problem

If all you want is a CD full of your image files, then you can use Creator Classic, or Data Disc. But this won't necessarily "play" when you insert it into a player or drive. Do you want your pictures to play as a slide show? Or are you simply backing them up? Let us know what sort of behavior you expect from your disc when you insert it into a player or drive.

 

As a side note, using proper capitalization is preferred to using all caps. It's easier to read.

Thank you much for your reply. Because I am over 80(!) and new to this game, concepts and understanding do not come easily. I upload digital pics from my Nikon D-50 using Nikon Transfer, and file them in VIEW-NX. Pics taken in the vertical position are transfered in the horizontal position. I have been right-clicking on the image and selecting "rotate 90 degrees" rather than selecting the EDIT tab and rotating them through this manner. Is that what you mean by using image editor? If I do it this way will they burn as they have been rotated?

 

When I burn a CD with these images it is my intention to view them as a slide show. On occasion I have burned a DVD with these pics and an added music file from songs on the computer.

 

Do you think I have understood your message?

Yes, I think you've understood quite well, and I understand better now too.

 

It sounds like the "View-NX" program keeps it's own attribute (information) about how to display the pictures (rotated, or unrotated), but that information isn't part of the picture, so, when you then put the file onto a CD, (or DVD), they display in their original, landscape orientation. If View-NX allows you to actually edit the picture and save it after you rotate it, then the rotated picture is what will wind up on the CD.

 

Now, when you put a CD full of image files into a DVD player, some DVD players are smart enough to recognize a disc full of image files and automatically start playing them. Not all will do that. If you put that same disc into a drive in a PC, Windows will likely offer an option to run a slide show for you, using one of Window's applications.

 

To make a "playable" disc, that runs a slide show in a DVD player, what you would typically do is actually create a DVD movie of your still pictures, using the VideoWave application in Creator 2010. You can add your pictures, select transitions (effects) between pictures, and add music. Then you save that project, and add it into MyDVD, which will render the pictures and all into the proper format for a playable DVD.

 

I know that seems like a lot, and it can be a lot, but there's a lot to know, and if you've made it this far, you're doing well.

 

So, does that help you at all? Check out the tutorials that come with Creator 2010, which is what I am assuming you have, since you posted in the Creator 2010 forum.

 

And ask more questions, there are people here who are much more knowledgeable than I am about making DVD slide show movies!

Dear D_D,

 

Thanks for the information. After your last communication I went to the folder with the pics, highlighted the vertical pics and clicked on "EDIT" above. From the drop-down menu I rotated the pics from landscape to vertical, and made another CD. Unfortunately they came out horizontal again. So I am not sure what is meant by picture editor. Where would this program be, and how do I upload all the pics into it before selecting a folder for permanent storage ? Would this mean go to the card reader again and load them into "picture editor" ?

Did you save the picture after rotating to your hard drive with a different name? Did you look at the picture after editing with Windows Explorer?

 

What program did you use to rotate the photo? If you are using C2011 the photo editor should be available right from the main menu page.

Right... you definitely need to save the image after you rotate it. Once you've done that, exit your editor, then restart it and reopen the photo you rotated and saved to make sure it is now in its new orientation.

 

PhotoSuite is the editor that comes with Creator 2010. I have Creator 2011 installed, so the images may not reflect exactly what you see, but should get you there.

Then you can open your photo. At the top you should find buttons for rotating your image left or right 90 degrees. Once done, again, save the image.

 

See if that helps.
