Ulead DVD PictureShow 2

With digital cameras hitting the mainstream, the newly digitally acquainted will be looking for ways to show off and share their pics with friends and family. I can highly recommend Ulead’s DVD PictureShow 2 Digital Camera Suite.

DVD PictureShow, which comes bundled with Ulead’s multimedia file organiser Photo Explorer 8.0, lets users create and burn slideshows complete with effects, text and soundtrack, to VCD, SVCD or DVD formats. Many DVD players now support the SVCD/VCD format and read CD-R/RWs, so even if you don’t have a DVD burner, you can output a slideshow presentation with just a CD burner.

DVD PictureShow 2 maintains Ulead’s reputation for ease of use, offering a drag-and-drop, wizard-driven interface. Images can be acquired directly from a scanner or digital camera and dropped into a slideshow. A batch import of images from multiple folders is also possible, making the process quick and simple (See here for screenshot).

Ulead’s range of transition effects for use between slides provides a professional look. Add a soundtrack (WAV or MP3 files) and some text (choose your font, colour and shadow), and you’ve got a masterpiece waiting for an audience.

Now with version 2 you can add video files in AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and QuickTime formats. Add any number of slideshows or video files to the project — the disc space usage bar indicates how much room is left.

A number of menu templates are included, or you can add your own back­ground file, which will be the first thing you’ll encounter upon loading the disc in a DVD player. The wizard’s last prompt will see your project burned to disc — a quick and painless affair, with fantastic results.

In brief: Ulead DVD PictureShow 2
DVD PictureShow 2 delivers excellent quality slideshows on CD or DVD — a great way to share photos with friends and family.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
