Windows 7: image size in slideshow

19 Oct 2011   #1

WIN7PRO 64bit
image size in slideshow

I have just got a new computer, with win7pro. When using xp, and using windows photo viewer to look at my images, I could click on slideshow, and my image would appear in it's correct size, eg, my web sized image would be smaller on the screen as opposed to my full sized images. However, now when I try to view my web sized images using the slideshow, it stretches my image to fit the screen, and so my image doesn't look so good. I have searched everywhere for an answer, but no luck. Hope you can help me.
Sorry, new to this forum, not sure what section this should go under.

If you have MS Office on your system then you've got a great solution already in your computer. Instead of Windows Photo Viewer, use Microsoft Office Picture Manager, and your problems will be over. Picture Manager has several different ways to view photos --- you can just use the slider at the lower right corner of the screen to display the photo in any size you want, or you can actually change the size permanently, to any size you want. It's very user friendly and a great photo app for editing and viewing images - and can be used in conjunction with virtually all slide show viewers.

Thankyou for your reply imperfect1. I have office, so checked it out, and it is certainly quite good, but I still don't have the black background. However, I have since posting been encouraged to try faststone, and it is fantastic, so that will now be my default viewer.
