Making JPEG's More Interesting!

Home Movies From You Media Collection

PhotodexWhile looking for a way to make viewing pictures less boring, I ran into and seeing that they were recommended by PC Magazine, I bought it "sight unseen".

What a great surprise!  Neat tool, easy to use and it bring the still pictures to life even allowing executable to be made in addition to CD's and DVD's! I highly recommend it!

Now we have music and motion and titles to remind us of what is happening. It is fun to go back and see these after many years.

Movies We Have Made

These movies are both "Streaming" and "Executables".  Streaming loads into your machine from the server but does not save anything when you are done. Executable, that is, .exe files requires you to download them which will take a few minutes due to the size and the player will come into action.  These are both safe methods!
