Nero 7 Ultra slide show - pictures dont fit

  1. I'm using windows xp home.

    A couple of the pictures in my slide show are too big I guess. I did reduce the size of one pic to 250x199 and things are lost at the top and bottom. Another picture is 560x420 and on the sides I lose some stuff that goes over the edge of my TV when I play the DVD.

    So reducing the pics didnt seem to help.

    Then I right clicked on pics in the timeline, and selected Crop. That seems like its supposed to help me make the pic fit the TV screen, but no luck.

    What am I doing wrong?

    When I watch the slide show using the Nero play and view screen, the pictures are fine, but on a burned DVD, afew pics are too big.

    Download Google's Picasa 2 and install it. Let it load the original pics and export them through Picasa at a fixed resolution to a file. From this exported file, burn another DVD and see if the pictures play properly

    Thanks, I'll try that - Meanwhile I dl'd ProShow Gold, and its real easy to resize pictures, but it demands ALL of my CPU. This laptop is a P4, and maxed out. LOL

    Nero was easier on my CPU I think.

    Thanks again
