Hello all. There doesn't seem to be a topic area to discuss specific programs like Nero 6 Ultra. Forgive me if I'm mistaken.
To a large extent Nero 6 Ultra is useful. It certainly needs to be polished, however. It's still a little bit clumsy. And no, I'm no expert with this kind of software. On the contrary.
I've experimented with burning a few photo slideshow cds. One thing that I don't understand is how I could go throw all of the pics, using HP photo printing software, sharpening all of the pics (my Canon PowerShot A75 produces frustratingly fuzzy pics) and saving them, and still find them looking fuzzy when I load them into Nero's 'asset' window, prior to creating my slideshow.
Anyhow, There are options, including sharpening and softening options, for each of the images selected for the slideshow filmstrip. But they are confusing. If you alter a pic and then choose to alter it further after viewing it in the view pane, when you return to the sharpening (for example) button, it's on 5, where it was when you first applied sharpening to the selected pic. What's more, When I played the slideshow and stopped it on various pics, and then highlighted the corresponding pic on the film strip, the sharpening I applied, and 'saved', earlier then appears. If it was applied and saved, then why isn't it showing up when I preview my slideshow?
Unrelated to that little problem, My program crashes completely when I'm going through the final preview just prior to burning. I can click on the 'stop' button on the remote control representation and then simply click on 'next' to get to the burning stage, But this is unsettling.
And I haven't attached video to my expermental slideshow projects yet, because unlike with the stills and audio, which were easy to do and which it was easy to see how everything fit together, all I see in the section that allows you to attach video clips is that and nothing more. But I'm just going to do it and see what happens.
If there are any users of Nero 6 Ultra out there who'd like to comment on my main problem, involving the supposedly 'saved' pics in the slideshow filmstrip, Please feel free. And thanks in advance.
