    XP has provision to make a slide show
    (a) Is there a way to change the rate the images change.
    (b) Is it possible to imbed them in a personal website without using html.

    When opening a Document in XP under Pictiure tasks you can view as slide show.
    I haven't heard of the one under Power Toy.

    TweakUI can adjust the slide show speed. It's under Explorer | Slide Show

    Or, you can edit the registry:
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellImageView
    Add (or Edit) a DWORD value named Timeout. Time is set in Milliseconds.

    This setting also affect the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer speed, but not the My Pictures Slideshow screensaver speed.

    You must restart Windows Explorer or the Picture and Fax viewer before any change will be seen

    Thanks for that but it's over my head. Had a look at Power Toy and it's installed but I've been unable to get it operating.

    Which Power Toy? The TweakUI power toy, or the HTML Slide Show Wizard?

    Haven't tried that one yet, but if you download and install the TweakUI powertoy (same link as above), that's the powertoy where you'll find the setting to change the slide show speed, plus a whole bunch of other settings to play with.

    Thanks for the information it was useful
    Still don't know why the HTML programme installed but can't be used. Anyone know where I have gone wrong.

    Not without giving us a little more information. I can't see your computer so you are going to have to describe what is going on.

    Found it. It was named without the HTML bit. Confusing.
    It said in the writeup it was ready for a web page. I assumed the title meant it would provide the html code but can't see it. I must have been wrong. How would I get it on a web page.

    It creates a website ready html slideshow. You just need a place to host the files. Do you have a current webhost to put the files on.

    I created a slideshow and called it Denver. It created a Folder in My Documents for me with the folder named denver. All the files and folders inside the Denver folder need to be uploaded to a website. So I just FTP into my webhost and upload the folder Denver to my webhost. Then I point my web broswer to.

    Just a guess, but I think you are using the wrong Slideshow power toy. There are two on that website. You sure you are using the correct one. There is an HTML SlideShow and CD SlideShow.

    I have now used both. The html one as you say requires use of ftp. That, html, css etc remainds a mystery I have no intention of solving.
    There are a lot of other people like minded so I have published a website to help them. www.freiwebsite.bravehost.com

    I guess I am not understanding your plight. The HTML SlideShow Wizard creates a directory with everything you need. All you do is upload it to your webhost. How hard can that be. You don't have to know any HTML to do that.
