    MS Powerpoint 2010 as it can import an album to slide show, you can add lots of music and have amazing transitional effects............its revolutionary!

    Hi Kim

    You could get Steve Jones to make you a scrolling image script and run it on a desktop server and output it through a sunray. For 30 on ebay you could get an iPod dock and play your music live and with infinite control!

    That script already exists... it is part of the kiosk pack IIRC.

    Of course, you could just buy the iPod dock and play music whilst running a slideshow of photos on the screen. I'd probably recommend an iPod touch for the richest user experience with it having a larger screen

    (Or you can use Live Essentials - MovieMaker or Photo Gallery... whichever takes your fancy)

    Why?

    Photostory 3 doesn't work on 64bit 2003 and no amount of hacking of the msi is making that happen. I'm about to try and fake it with Cameyo to see if that works.

    On Windows 7, download Windows Live Movie Maker.

    Much better than the movie maker of old.
