I use Nero 7 Premium (Photo Story) or Windows Movie Maker to create pic slideshows from JPG images. When the application comes to saving it, it is always around the 320 x ??? resolution figure and there don't seem any options to improve that resolution?
The original pics directly from my Olympus Digital Camera are all "high resolution" so as a newbie, I am kinda confused with the relationship of these two sets of resolution......duh!

Like how do I make high resolution DVD's for playing back on my Telly when the applications don't seem to give me that option? :eek: :eek:

What is the resolution of your telly and DVD player. There is no way you are going to display the full detail of a photo from a modern day digital camera on a typical home TV set.

Thanks for reply!
I have Toshiba Plasma 108 cm and I think the res is about 1024 something.......?
DVD Res? Gee, didn't know there was such a thing i trms of resolution...........! It is a late 2006 Sony model that I guess is pretty high res?
I guess my real interest is why the software (Nero) only offers a res of about 320 x ??? to make DVD's for Telly. Thought I would have been able to go higher than that?
Think I had better do some reading on the subject!

Check the DVD player's owner's manual to see what video formats it supports. If it only lists NTSC and/or PAL then, your vertical resolution is under 500 lines (NTSC) or 600 (PAL) in very rough numbers.

If your player supports High Definition playback, then you will need to burn your slide show using a burner such as this one (http://www.engadget.com/2007/01/05/toshiba-unveils-sd-h903a-hd-dvd-burner-for-pcs/) and using compatible high density blank discs.

It always helps to have your country listed in your profile, it makes answers to questions like this easier.

So for me, D1 NTSC resolution = 720 x 486, which is what all my Nero projects pump out.

What country do you live in?
