How to Create a Slideshow in Windows 7

Ever since the age of the digital camera, everyone is snapping photos left and right.  My computer is jammed with favorite memories.
It sure is a lot easier in the digital age than it was when you had to deal with the whole “drop film off, wait, pick film up, throw out the junk photos, and then stick the good shots in a box” era.  And let’s face it; all those photos stuck in a box are never really going to end up in a frame, are they?
So I love my digital camera, I can get rid of bad shots with a click.  But I just don’t seem to enjoy the good shots, any more than I did with the old process of cramming them in a drawer, a photo box, or even an album (huh?).  In fact, if I want to actually show someone my fantastic photographic skills, I have to log into my computer, pull up the file, click through each one, and my audience (although impressed) really does not enjoy standing behind me looking through twenty angles of me standing by Mickey Mouse in Disney World.

Present your past with Slideshows.
There must be a better way for me to show off my travels, my family, how photogenic I am, cute pet shots, and delightful scenery.  Well of course there is!  I can use my computer screen to have a running display of all of my worldly adventures by making a slide show of my favorite (and most flattering) photos.  It’s not hard to do and can even be fun.  In fact, if you have a child over the age of six, they could probably do it for you while you are out capturing more shots to show off.
How to Make a Slide Shot in Windows 7:

  1. The first thing to do is organize.  Go through the photos in your computer – discard any duplicates or poor shots and sort them into files.  (Vacation, kids, pets, etc.)
  2. Then decide if you ant to have a “themed” slide show, or one with a mixture of various events, people, scenes.
  3. If you want just vacation shots running along your screen, fine – then that’s the file you will use.  However, if you want a mixture, pick the shots you want as your part of your show and create separate file of those photos.  Label it “Screen Slide Show 2010” or whatever name will help you identify it easily.
  4. Open your Start screen and go to Control Panel.  In the search section type Desktop Background, and then click on Change Desktop Background.
  5. Find the file of the pictures you want to include as your personal slide show.  All of the pictures in that file will be included as your background show, so make sure you want each one displayed.  If there is one or two you don’t want, just clear the check box by those photos.
  6. Go to “Change Picture Every…” to indicate how quickly you want the pictures to advance.
  7. If you want the picture to appear in a random order, simply click “Shuffle”.

That’s it.  Now you can enjoy your memories and show them off with ease!
