Nxt And Photoshow

Question

I upgraded to NXT Pro because, according to the web, that is the program I need to open a PhotoShow. Well, guess what, they lied. And, support sucks. There is no way to get a simple answer to a simple question. I bought the program for the sole purpose of opening a PhotoShow. I much prefer Adobe, but that won't solve my problem. If Roxio can't solve the problem, it's return time and get my money back.

Do you have a PhotoShow on a disc or do you have a link to the web site where that PhotoSHow is stored. You said that you just wanted to open it. There did you get it from? If someone gave it to you, tell them to make a wmv file out of the PhotoShow and you can view it on any PC. If you have a file with photoshow extension, then that is something completely different. and you would need the PhotoShow application to view it.

 

Please point out where you saw that information concerning PhotoShow; a link will do. They are completely different programs.

 

Creator NXT will use Edit Video Advanced to create a slide show with or without music that can be uploaded to the web (YouTube or other) or that you can burn to a video file or disc. It allows you to add long videos and to edit them.

 

PhotoShow (Version 6) will allow you to make a PhotoShow with music and PREMADE templates. It is primarily designed to have the PhotoShows on the PhotoShow web site, to upload to You Tube or other or to burn to a file or disc. You will pay $40 annually after the first year for space on the PhotoShow web site. Creator NXT does not require and annual fee and you really don't have to upgrade it.

 

Give us a little more information on what you want to do so we can make a recommendation.

 

The difference is how much freedom you want in your show if you were going to make one.

 

Whomever gave you the PhotoShow did not do you any favors.

I was given a CD with the .photoshow program on it. When I attempted to open it on my computer, I got that little windows prompt, Do you want to check the web? It directed me to Roxio NXT to open PhotoShow, not to Creator, or any other Roxio program. I ordered the program upgrade online since I have Creator DE. I download, install, and it doesn't do me a bit of good. Since I can't run the file, is there a way I can save it to another extension and use PowerPoint or some other program to run it or edit it? I think I have just spent $120.00 for no reason.

What does "it doesn't do me a bit of good" mean?

What program did you download and install?

 

The .photoshow only works with the PhotoShow program that is included with NXT (if that is what you downloaded)

 

What files are on the CD you received?

I downloaded Creator NXT Pro from the Roxio website. It does not contain PhotoShow. It contains:

3DPhotoCreator; 3DTutorials; AudioCodec; AudioCore; AVCHD Archive; Certificates; Common; Dragon; EMBDAA; Label Creator; Media Import; Media Manager; MPEG; PhotoSuite; RoxioBurn; Roxio Central; Share; Sidewinder; Video Convert; VideaCore; Video UI; Virtual Drive; WinDVD.

 

I tried to open the disc using PhotoSuite and it did not work.

 

The PhotoShow was made by someone else. I need to be able to transmit the file to third parties for them to play. If they require PhotoShow to play it, then I need to be able to de-construct the PhotoShow and take the photos and make a slideshow in PowerPoint or other program. I bought the NXT Pro in hopes of being able to de-construct and get the photos. Suffice it to say, time is of he essence, and cost was not a problem. Maybe my copy of NXT Pro is incomplete or corrupt, but I don't have PhotoShow as a program.

Sorry about my incorrect information with regard to PhotoShow included with NXT. Apparently it has been dropped from NXT. I would suggest you return NXT, get a refund and the buy the stand-alone PhotoShow program from Roxio. Without that program your photoshow CD is totally useless. No other program can work with that photoshow file

 

BTW, whoever made the CD should have created a proper Photoshow DVD which you then could have made copies from and distributed them. Or he/she should have created a video file for distribution. At the moment you have nothing to work with or convert.

If you get PhotoSHow, and it opens your file, there is a third step that will allow you to output to a mpg or wmv file. (see below)

 

First, go here (link) and download the free (limited version) see if that will read the file. It may not but that doesn't mean the full version won't.

 

The initial cost of the program includes one year of web storage (sort of like YouTube). There is no way of getting the program without the membership.

 

Corel USUALLY has a 30 day $$ back warranty but I don't knwo if that holds true for this program.

 

Why don't you want to go back to the person that gave you the file? He can make a video file with it.

Have them create video file and e-mail it to you OR have them upload it and send you the link or simply e-mail it to you. Why spend the money IF you really don't need to. You have alreay wasted time and money by buying the wrong program and now waiting for the answers on this forum.

 

Do what I said about trying the free PhotoShow program to see if it works.

 

Just to make sure, if you put the cd into your computer drive and explore it, what files/file types are on it?
