Convert Digital Photos
to VCD Format

  By converting digital photos to VCD format, you can view the photos as a slideshow on the TV. I've found a really good value-for-money tool that can do just this - Ulead CD & DVD PictureShow.

Ulead makes great products - Ulead CD & DVD PictureShow is a good example. The software allows you to make great slideshows in just a few clicks - you can perform drag-and-drop photo ordering and use pre-defined templates to make slideshow creation really simple.

It also has exciting slideshow features like music and personalized menu backgrounds.

Ulead CD & DVD PictureShow also allows you to burn your VCD picture slideshows on CD-R/RW or DVD-R/RW media. The resulting VCDs can be in NTSC or PAL TV formats that are compatible with DVD or VCD players worldwide. This is THE software I use when I need to quickly share my huge digital photo collection with friends and family.

Create Slideshows Easily

Ulead CD & DVD PictureShow enables you to create multimedia slideshows using your own photos, video and music files. You have the option of adding narration, as well as customizable menu backgrounds.

Edit & Organize

CD & DVD PictureShow comes with Ulead Photo Explorer bundled inside. I personally find Photo Explorer to be an excellent product for organizing and keeping track of all your photo, music, and video files. You can even create catalogs of all the image CDs you've created.

Powerful Sharing

Once you have included the photos you need into CD & DVD PictureShow, you can then quickly and easily burn the slideshows to CD or DVD and watch them on TV using your home DVD player.
