Hi

I have my images on my lap top but when I want to show them to friends and fmily it is a lillte awkward to huddle around the lap top. Can anyone suggest a way to see the images on the TV at full screen?

I would also like advice on how to create a slide show with added music?

Thanks

Has your laptop got HDMI out, If so has your telly got HDMI in......?

If both have this type of port, Just join them together, Then configure your graphic card for the TV resolution.

Its quite easy......Wink

Slideshows & music, Checkout " ProShow Gold " .....Sorted...!

Or if you have Win7, you could use Movie Maker and burn your images to a DVD, If you don't have Win7 you can download it from Microsoft for free!......Jobs a good un'! And it's a cinch to use.

Most new tvs now also have a vga port (15 pin D) aswell as the HDMI option. Just check the back of your TV and buy the cable that you need.

I've got a Samsung TV and it has a USB port Grin

Just plug it in, select USB from TB menu and hey presto!

Your best bet is HDMI, which is superior for quality. As for adding music to a DVD, do not do this unless its copyright free. Otherwise you could find yourself in court.

For private use in your home it should be ok. Othewrwise yes beware.

I think that that's a bit paranoid. Given that just about everybody's downloading music these days, you'd have to be pretty unlucky to end up being prosecuted for adding a few tracks to a DvD for your own use.

Some newer TVs also let you plug the SD card straight in and flick through the photos using your remote, that is quick and easy too. Smile

What laptop, what TV would be helpful?

My TV's also got a Usb port and my daughter's Nintendo thing has the ability to read SD cards using the TV as a monitor, although the images need to be Jpegs.

My son has his favourite pics on the TV via a memory stick uploaded through his Xbox.
Surely you've got enough options nowGrin

Sony Bravia LCD's are great, you can wirelessly stream images straight to it.

Thanks guys

I am bit behind with all this technology and dont really understand a lot of the options, sorry. I have a lap top running windows 7 and a LG TV. No X box Whatever one of those is. I guess I need to ask my local telly shop what leads I require to do this or try and download my images on to a DVD?? and play it through the DVD player?? I think I have tried that before and ened up with either small images or unable to control the speed they ran at. Thanks for all the suggestions anyway guys.
