Photo's In Slideshow Black Border

Question

Am using Roxio Creator 10. On the main menu when u open the program, went to photo, then create slideshow.

Trying to make a slideshow/video of my friend's. He gave me a dvd with all the pics on it. I created a sample slideshow with about 35 photo's, but some of the slides in the slidehow have a black border on either side and some are a full pic with no black border. Used the "wedding album" transition style but some of the same photo's still had that black border.

How can I get it so there is NO black border on some pics?

 

Thank you

Chrisa

You describe it as a black border "on either side". That makes it sound like you've got a vertically oriented picture, which, when you just place it into a slide show will naturally have black on either side. If you first crop the image to a horizontal format, then it'll fill the screen as you probably want, but you'll have to do that manually, either cropping the image in a photo editor first, or manually "zooming" on it in VideoWave.

 

Is that what's happening? If not, please give us more details, such as how you're creating your slide show, using the slide show assistant, or Video Wave (preferred).

 

Let us know!

I am new at this and not sure what you mean? I assume some of the pictures were taken in a vertical position as some fill the slide and some have that black border on each side.. I have attached 2 pictures as a sample with the problem I am having, many more like it.

I am starting my slideshow on the main menu of Roxio/photo/create slideshow, adding the photo's/adding music then at the end edit in Videowave.

 

Thank you for your patience.

No attached pictures in your post.

 

Start your project in Videowave, forget about using the wizards like "Create Slideshow".

Pictures that have the black border on the sides are usually in the Portrait format while the ones that fill the screen are in the Landscape mode.

What are the pixel resolutions of the 2 problem photos?

2165x3030. There are mabny others photo's in this slideshow with the same problem and they all were taken witha about the same pixel resolution.

 

I will try and attach a few photo's again.. I GOTO "BROWSE" at the bottom of this reply, find the photos I want to attach, select the photo(s)I want to attach,select open then send. I can see the photo names in that browse box when I'm done??

 

Thank you

Okay... here's the point, if you display a vertically oriented picture (portrait style) in a horizontal box (your TV or monitor) then to show the whole picture, there will be extra space on the sides, thus, the black bars. If you want to fill the screen, then you have two choices, you can either distort the picture by stretching it sideways, or you can cut off the top and bottom to leave a horizontally oriented (landscape) picture.

 

To attach your pictures, yes, Browse, then "Attach this file". Once it's uploaded, you have to click the "Add to Post" link to the right of the uploaded picture. It will be inserted where ever your cursor is in your posting.

 

Here's a portrait picture in it's original format:

Now I cropped it to a landscape orientation. Notice that you will lose some of the picture. In this case, that would be unacceptable to me. The whole headpiece is what makes the picture, so I would leave the black bars.

And just so you can see what happens if you "stretch" the picture to get rid of the black bars, here's the original image stretched into a landscape format. (Ick!)post-61-068031800 1299087501.jpg

 

Does that help?

2165x3030 indicates a vertical (portrait) picture and there is no way to get rid of the black border without cropping or distorting the picture (as Dave has described in his post).

Thank you for taking the time to explain & show me the final result if I cropped/stretched the pic. I personally don't like either solution either and will leave the pics alone.

 

Your a BIG help!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a trick the Pros use and we prosumers need to apply ;)

 

You base your Composition on your OUTPUT!

 

If your output is TV, you cannot display Portrait so don’t waste your time taking portrait shots!

 

Another thought on this… If the picture is really good, no one will even notice any bars on the sides :lol:
