    Hi

    I am looking for a large screen to display my photos but PC monitors seem very small so was wondering about using my LCD 42" TV screen to display my photos and have a couple of questions.

    1) What resolution and format should I save the images in order for them to be seen at the highest quality on the TV?

    2) How would I show the photos so that they take up all the space on the TV rather than there being any borders/black space?

    Appreciate your help.

    Regards,

    James

    Size them to the pixel size of your TV (probably 1920 x 1080). You can scale them to fill the space, but if your aspect ratios are different, you will lose some of the image. If you scale to fit the screen, you may get borders on the sides or top and bottom

    A tv is intended for viewing moving images, it miy not be the best medium for viewing images, you may also have trouble colour callibrating it.
