Any recommendations on slideshow software to create nice slideshows for wedding image presentation. I am using Kai's Powershow now but looking for something better.

I also would like to show images at the actual wedding reception on my laptop loaded from my Canon Rebel Digital XT. Can I load images directly from this camera into my laptop?

Thanks.

One fellow provided a link to a sample he created using ProShow Gold. Here's the thread:

http://www.photography​-on-the.net ...06&highlight=Prosho​w+gold

If you just want a simple slideshow, it can also be done quickly and easily right in Photoshop (create pdf slideshow).

As for loading images from the camera to the laptop, maybe consider getting one of these instead for your PC card slot (most newer laptops have one):

Note, if you decide on a PC card type reader for you laptop make sure it is a 32 bit cardbus type or else it will be really s l o w . The brutally slow ones are quite a bit cheaper. If you are looking for a cheaper solution than this and don't mind a USB cable with an external reader, then get one of these:

http://www.bhphotovide​o.com ...EG&addedTroughType=​searchexternal link

I have the Cardbus one because I like to minimize the number of cables I use for my laptop, and it doesn't burn up a USB port (I only have 3). Also, I'm certain that the XT can download directly to your laptop using USB, but it can be inconvenient since you can't use your camera during the transfer and it chews up battery life. Plus, you will need a card reader anyway when the day comes to update the firmware on the camera.

I use DVD PhotoPlay, you can burn a slide show onto a CD-R that will play in a DVD or on a computer. You can also add music.

Thanks so much for the info. I will check everything out and make a decision soon. I show a slideshow to every bride when I present her images for the first time.

Not sure what to do for my proofing now. I have always given paper proofs in an album but I know clients are copying in stead of purchasing. I wanr

I want to give a digital proof album with maybe 12 to a page so they can't copy. Then give a finished flush type album as the final.Then give them a low res. CD with all of their images.

Can you add more than one image to a slide in proshow gold?

cmM,

I don't think that ProShow can do that. You mean like have 2 images side by side displayed together as one image?

I've checked and rechecked the list of features in comparisson with the other one, proshow producer or w/ever it's called and it doesn't seem to have it, only the more expensive one does.

What I mean is having 2,3,4...10 images on one slide appear, not at the sam time though, and in different positions.

Looks like the producer product has layering capability which gets you what you want. $399 is pretty steep for a slide show package. I wonder what the RAW capabilities are or why you'd want to upload native RAW files with no post processing?

Good luck.
