Does anyone know if it possible to move an elements 5 slide show (currently under construction) to a new machine?
I believe I will have to start again..........

Can't say I do, Mark. Sorry. Anyone else?
I'm sure there must be. Best thing to do is open Windows Explorer and do a filename search of all your disks (starting with C) to see if you can find anything with the name you have called your slideshow.
Sorry I don't use elements but it's almost certain that you can save your work and your final published version. You certainly can in version 6
then just copy the files to your new computer
Thanks for the suggestions guys.
Have done some further investigation and it appears I can't. The slide show doesn't actually exist until I finalise it, after which I can't edit it.
Serves me right for upgrading to a bigger and better machine I suppose.
I've always used video-editing software to create stills slide shows.
You may find you have the freebie Windows Movie Maker 2 on your PC. That'll do the job.
Just a thought. Why can you not at least save all the photo's in a single Folder, there at least you have them all easily at hand to just create a new show on the new PC.
Collywobbles that is what I ended up doing last night.
Started work on the new slide show and because of the new pc was able to progress much faster. I've caught up to where I was.
Just out of interest. I recently bought a Canon Camcorder. In my stills photography I use Photoshop CS, has anyone any experience of what Video Editing Software is useful out there. Windows Movie Maker and Pinnacle spring to mind. Colin
Adobe Premiere Elements is similar to Photoshop Elements, i.e. about 90% of the functionality for a small fraction of the price!
Thanks CB, I will check it out.
