I have been using a number of Serif products for some time. I have just received Media plus 2 I understand it will help me organize images into albums. I have gone through a couple of the tutorials but a bit confusing to me. I have just taken 75 good images at a vacation resort in Northern Michigan I want to make an album or slide show that I can put on a CD or DVD is media plus capable of organizing and doing that process?
Hope to hear from you soon.
P.S some one told me I should be looking at Album plus instead. I already have media plus and my operating system is windows XP
From a post made some time ago, by Sarah (I think)...
AlbumPlus 4 is newer than MediaPlus 2, however AlbumPlus is not an upgrade to MediaPlus. They are similar programs, but not the same. Each has different features to the other and they stand separate.
Some features that are unique to each:
AlbumPlus 4 is more about photo management.
Edit in PhotoPlus
MediaPlus 2 is geared more towards general media management.
Internet file downloading
Publish album to web
Batch file conversion
Create stand-alone slideshow
Export slideshow to DVDPlus, MoviePlus, VCDMaker
Note that AlbumPlus X2 was released in May 2007 and replaced AlbumPlus 4. MediaPlus 2 was released in March 2004. Therefore, the above description of the differences between the two programs might no longer be completely accurate.
I have tried several programs to copy a CD but no avail. I did speak to a tech Person and he discovered we need a resource disk to make a slide show. I even was able to covert to an .EXE file but it would not copy to a cd or DVD. I understand a resource disk is on it's way. Hope to see it soon. Is there some other magic to use media plus to organize and then copy to cd or dvd???
I have now received the resource disk that has the video cd maker I have printed and read the instructions. ( Not very clear). I HAVE MADE A SLIDE SHOW WITH 75 images I am trying to gather and preview. when I get to preview it just sort of sits there. The file has been saved as (DVP) Would it help to re install the CD? Is the file to large? I really wanted to add a movie clip or two as well as the images on same file. As I read it seemed this was also possible if the disk was large enough
Hope some one can help.
no but I will I did let the program sit for quite some time before giving up. does it take a long time to process 75 or so slides. I have also tried some smaller stuff. I do get the thumbnails on the left side of the screen but so far I have not been able to burn a disk
I have tried again to burn and get to a point where I should be able to preview. However it will not preview. I also notice the burn disk icon is greyed out.
can anyone give me a clue. The help instructions do not help me.
