    A potential customer has contacted me saying his client has a themed pub and would like to display 50-100 of my photos on 4 screens around the pub. I could put a slide show together on windows movie maker and slap it on a DVD. I am concerned that my photos could be reproduced and resold from images captured from the .wmv file. Is that possible?
    Also what should I set the price at???

    I can't answer part 1 of the question but the answer to part 2 is free beer for life.

    Try Pictures-to-Exe software from wnsoft.com. It has an option to prevent copying of your photos.

    Proshow producer creates a streaming video of the images and I'm pretty sure the images can't be taken from that either.

    Thanks all, Proshow producer looks a little above my price range at $230. Picture-to-Exe is $75. I probably will not use very often.

    Beer for life would be great but I'd have to cross the Atlantic to avail of it!!!!! What would be a reasonable price? Any Ideas????

    Animoto are really good for this sort of thing, but they are a little pricey.

    If there is a Studio near you it could be worth going in and asking if they use Animoto as it is very popular with social photographers. They may be willing, for a small fee, to create you a DVD slideshow of you images.

    We use it at our studio and I certainly would not have a problem creating slideshows for Landscape photographers if asked. Personally I would charge around 25 - 30.

    The only problem would be that there is a time limit to the slideshows depending on the music selected. The landlord may have trouble playing the DVD on a continuous loop.

    I would also say that Pictures to EXE is a decent bit of affordable software for basic slideshows.

    Thanks Paul.
    #The Client has got back to me saying they just want the jpegs and they would manage the slide show. I do not like the idea of sending origional jpegs.

    Why not? This is the reality of digital photography - bride and groom who want all RAW files to process themselves and clients who want electronic copies of the images. Even if you send them on disc, if the image can be piped into a projector it can be piped into a copying device so no matter what you do there will be some way of copying it (audio has been trying to tackle this for years and failed miserably). If you are worried about unauthorised use then you will end up never selling anything and never uploading to websites.
    At least they are asking for jpeg and not the full RAW file so if you are really concerned send to them the minimum quality image that will fulfill their needs (with metadata embedded into it) and the sale agreement includes acknowledgement that you retain full copyright.
