Cameras and Camcorders

More fun with digital photos

It is great fun to move your favorite pictures into one file and set that file as your screen saver. You can have all your image files loaded randomly and displayed on your screen as your screensaver.

I get extra enjoyment out of my favorite photos this way.

What to do with an old laptop...

I had an old cruddy laptop laying around that I never used. I was always trying to find a use for it, too. Then I read an article in Computer Power User about creating a picture frame out of an old laptop. I decided to give it a go. Turns out it's not too tough....

The specs on my old laptop are: 15" screen running at 1024x768, PIII 450, 512 MB RAM, 12 GB hard drive. It was once a good machine but now it's pretty much a slug. So I first loaded it up with software: I installed a fresh copy of Windows XP Service Pack 2, and removed all the unnecessary garbage like Automatic Updates, prompts to upgrade security settings, etc. Then, I found a slideshow program that would generate an executable slideshow file and I put a shortcut to it in my Startup folder.

Ask The Experts: How Do I Play My Camera's Video Clips on My DVD Player?

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...




Dear Sir, please can you help. I Have a Canon digital camera which records and plays 30 seconds clips of video. These can be copied to a CD and played in a program called QuickTime on my computer, but it they will not play in my home DVD player. However, it does work when I copy JPEG photos. I have a Panasonic DVD home theater system, model SC-HT870. I'm hoping you can help this silly old fool in Devon.
