Create a DVD Photo Album for Christmas Using PowerPoint

Burn Christmas PowerPoint to DVD

You are going to take a lot of memorable photographs during Christmas and store them on your computer. It's a wise idea for you to organize them in a good way. Make them a DVD photo album is a nice solution. It is quite an easy job as long as you have Microsoft PowerPoint installed on your computer.

PowerPoint versions 2000 to 2007 have the feature to save your photos as an album. Make separate digital photo albums for different sets of pictures. There is no limit to the number of albums, or the number of photos in each album. So you can add all the pictures of the same set into one album. This is a great way to organize your photo life.

Now let's start to create an awesome album using PowerPoint 2007.

Add pictures into the album

On the Insert menu, point to Picture, and then click Photo Album.

Click on the 'File/Disk…' option and locate the pictures on the computer. You can add multiple pictures at one time. It is strongly recommended that you optimize the pictures in Photoshop/gimp before inserting them into the album. Because pictures are used a high but unnecessary resolution, i.e. 3 million, you can downgrade the photo resolution into 800x600, which is 480,000.

Choose an album layout

  1. In the Album Layout section at the bottom of the dialog box, choose a layout for the pictures on each slide. You can also reorder the sequence of the pictures using the up and down arrow keys below the listing of the pictures, rotate the pictures, and adjust the brightness and saturation. A layout preview is shown on the right side of the dialog box.
  2. And, you are provided with an option to use customized template. Click the Browse button. Locate the template in the 'Choose Design Template box' that allows you to navigate to the folder where we have stored the downloaded templates. Choose any of the three templates.
  3. Finally, click on 'Create' button, done. Isn't this easy?

Burn the PowerPoint album to DVD

  1. Capture the screen to make a regular video file using Camstudio (http://camstudio.org), it is totally free. It will save your video in AVI format. You just need to burn the video to DVD using Nero/Roxio.
  2. You can use PowerPoint to DVD Burner from Moyea Software. It can save PPT files onto DVD and enable you watch it on TV. This method is much more convenient.

There are also some good tips for you all:

  • Choose different layouts for different pictures. Big landscape pictures deserve a whole slide, while other pictures may share a single slide.
  • Beautiful PowerPoint template can make your album shining.
  • Add text titles and descriptions for some pictures, photos cannot tell everything.
  • Take care of the DVD photo album disc.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
