Can you Email a Slide show?

By sw723 ·
I have zipped a bunch of pics with winzip and sent them to my friends but I was wondering is there a way to put them in a slide show and email them so my friends can let the slide showe take them on a tour of the pics instead of having to click on each one????

The short answer is Yes you can.

But you have to take into account what program you are using to do it with.

You friends would have to have the same program to view the slide show as you do.

For example: Microsoft Powerpoint can create a file that can be seen by other people using powerpoint or the free powerpoint viewer that you can send them or they can download from Microsoft.

If you going to be using another program, you will have to find out if that program has a viewer that you can send or your friends can download.

I think power point loads one pic at a time. I have 198 and need a program that loads them all at a time... Any suggestions?

If they have XP, just put all the unzipped jpegs in one directory, for example "My Slide Show" and double click on the first one image. Then click on the little icon at the bottom next to the plus magnifier and voila. Mouse click advances to the next slide.

Do you have XP? If so you can download slideshow.exe from XP's Powertools site. It says that it is a CD Slideshow Generator, but I have used it and just saved to a file. The you can zip and e-mail.

CD Slide Show Generator
Enables you to view images burned to a cd as a slide show. Add only images to a CD-RW drive using Windows XP Explorer and then write these files to a CD-R or CD-RW disc. A new task is presented in the wizard for generating the autorun for the slideshow. Now when you take this disc to another computer that isn't running Windows XP you can still view your images as a slide show.
