    Easiest way to do this...?

    I've got 60 pictures to go on our TV system, they're all 4000x3000 or bigger and i need them all to play in sequence...short of uploading 700mb of images or faffing about trying to put them into one powerpoint (which would no doubt mean messing around resizing them) can anyone recommend a really quick way of sticking 60 jpg images into a sequence like a video file or something without having to worry about resizing them etc?

    Movie maker?

    Also, I use Office Picture Manager to resize images. It works reasonably well and can do lots of images at once. [Though the saving is a pain when doing a lot...]

    Use something like FastStone resizer to batch resize as appropriate to a new folder. Then in Powerpoint 2010 Insert - Photoalbum and select the folder, which will put each pic. on a separate page. You can then export the presentation as a video file to play on the TV.

    PowerPoint will import the images and resize them to fit the slides, then you can compress all the images automatically before saving.

    We use PowerPoint here too for this purpose. Nice and simple, but it works.

    Either write your own Javascript to load them up one by one, or use Microsoft Photo Story to produce a video file.

    If the file names are in the correct sequence, won't Preview play a slideshow of photos in a folder in the correct order?

    But I believe he wants to play them as a video file on a TV. Does irfan viewer do this.

    Windows Photo Story would do it as well. Not sure if there is an item limit though. It would put them all together with whatever slideshow effect you want and exports as a video file or alternatives. Download Photo Story 3 for Windows from Official Microsoft Download Center
