    Hi all,

    Hope someone can help me here. I am creating "pages" in Photoshop, designed for use as electronic billboards in a bar. They will be basically a page with logo, text and photo(s), made into a slide show and played back on a TV (via DVD).

    The problem I am having is working out what size "page" to start with. Would this depend on the size of the TV it is being played back on ? Should I just go for large and then be more aware of what size I am saving my slideshow (as a movie file) ?

    The options for saving my slideshow / movie (currently using Ulead Video Studio) all seem to be small - 800x600 max. Should I custom set it to be larger ???

    The problem I am having is that the text is not coming out as clear on the DVD as it is when done in PS - is this inevitable ?

    Sorry to drone on, but hopefully someone has some useful advice for me Smile

    THANKS !!!

    Alexandra.

    If you are creating slideshows for storing in DVD playback format - note, that's not just stored on a DVD, but an actual DVD film format for automatically playing on DVD players, then consider making your pages 720X576 as this is the standard resolution for DVD film.

    The problem with your text is that if it gets resized it will automatically look poor. If you are outputting your slideshow as DVD film onto the DVD then it will automatically be resized to the MPEG 2 spec.
