    Hello all
    I'm about to start scanning all my old photographs for archiving and to create slideshows on cd/dvd rom. Heres my question ---

    Is there software to create a slideshow on cd/dvd which will show the photos on a widescreen tele (16:9) without having to change the aspect ratio to fill the screen therefore distorting the picture.

    [Ive tried ulead picture show & roxio 6 with no success.]

    This is pure guess work, but i would guess its to do with the VCD standard being 4:3. Ulead uses the VCD standard for sure.

    Not tried it (only having a DVD RAM drive (thatll teach me to be an early adopter) ) but surely a DVD authoring tool would allow for a widescreen tag to be set? As you would be using another format that isnt constrained by VideoCD.

    EDIT:
    Ignore me you can do widescreen VCDs so its a limitation of software not VCD format.
