Answers

1. What types of image formats are supported?

Photo DVD Maker supports JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and BMP image formats.

2. How many photos can be added to one slideshow?

If you want to burn the slideshow to DVD or VCD, you have to take the disc capacity into consideration. The storage capacity of standard DVD disc is about 4.7 GB, while the storage capacity of VCD is roughly 800 MB. One 4.7G DVD-R disc can holds more than 1,000 photos with background music.

So the number of photos that can be added to one slideshow DVD depends on:

> The quality of photos

> Interval time between photos

> The file size of background music

Photo DVD Maker calculates the disc space used when photos or background music are added into the slideshow. At the bottom of the main window is the status bar, where you can select the output type, and see if you can still add more photos or music to the slideshow.

Case 1: 1398 photos have been added to the slideshow DVD project, and there is still free space.

Case 2: The slideshow project with 1398 photos apparently oversize the capacity of one 800MB VCD. In this case, you have to reduce the number of photos in the slideshow to fit the disc capacity.

Video clip can be added to the slideshow as a stand alone album. However, video clips cannot be mixed with photos in one album.

4. What types of videos formats are supported?

6. How to import photos from Picasa?

Picasa is a software application for organizing and editing digital photos owned by Google. Please follow these steps to import Picasa photos to Photo DVD Maker:

1. Locate the photos or folder

In Picasa, right-click on a selected folder or photo, and choose “Locate on Disk”, and Picasa will take you to the file folder containing photos you want.

2. Select the photos you want to add to the photo slideshow.

3. Drag and drop the selected photos to the Album Photo section of Photo DVD Maker.

7. All photos in the saved project are missing when I open it latter. Why?

DVD Photo Slideshow will save the project with the file directory of the photos and the configuration you made to them. It does not include the image files.

If you move the photos to other folder, or rename the folder, DVD Photo Slideshow will not be able to locate the photos. Then the slideshow project turns blank.

Please make sure you did not change the location path of the photos. If you did, you may restore it manually.
