Digital Slideshows Made Easy: Emailing Slideshows
Take advantage of a variety of programs to compile and share your photos
Has one of your friends or relatives ever e-mailed you a whole collection of their pictures? Wasn't it annoying to have to download all those attachments and open each one separately? We're probably all guilty of bombarding the people in our lives with a barrage of e-mailed images, and there's a better way—send them a slideshow. Instead of e-mailing an assortment of individual images, you can take advantage of a wide variety of programs that compile your selected images and put them all together in an easy-to-use format.
Slideshow programs can be grouped by the strategy they use to deliver the pictures. One approach creates a slideshow as a single file that can be e-mailed and then run on your recipient's computer when the file is opened. These slideshows often offer automatic, timed slide advance and special transitions, like fades or wipes, between slides. Some programs allow you to put multiple images on the screen or to insert a video.
