PhotoShow Authoring Suggestions
1. Before creating a new PhotoShow, determine why and for whom you are making it. If you want to tell the story of an event, be sure to include photos that show the beginning, the middle, and the end. Select only the best photos to include in your PhotoShow, and try to minimize repetition. PhotoShows with fewer photos tend to have more impact. 2. Decide what tone you want to set in the PhotoShow and choose your soundtrack accordingly. You can use multiple songs to emphasize a change in mood. 3. Adding custom transitions and effects can have a dramatic effect on your PhotoShow. Placing multiple pieces of animated clip art on a single photo and varying their sizes can create interesting layers of depth and dimension. Control your PhotoShow's pace by setting its speed (i.e., frame duration). To put special emphasis on a given photo, change its speed to a longer duration. This is a good idea when you are using text or captions, since you want to give the viewer time enough to read them. 4. If you plan to share your PhotoShow with people online, be careful not to use too many songs or video clips, because your PhotoShow's file size will increase and it will take longer to download for viewing.
You can email photos by adding them as attachments to your emails: 1. Click Email Photos. 2. Select the photos you want to email. 3. When you have finished your selection, click the Email Photos button again to continue to the Email Photos screen. The Email Photos screen features two tabs: a.

Using the Email with Outlook tab lets you create a new message in Microsoft Outlook with your photos automatically attached. 4. You can select the attached photo's dimensions with the Photo Size menu. By default, emailed photos will be downsized to a resolution of 640 x 480 to reduce file size. 5. You can control image quality with the Quality menu. Higher quality settings produce larger file sizes. If you're sending photos to people with slow internet connections, consider using smaller photo sizes and lower quality settings. If your recipients intend to print the photos you're sending them, keep the size and quality settings high.

Nero 8 Ultra Edition Applications *
This QuickStart Guide explains how to install Nero 8 Ultra Edition and provides a brief description of the individual applications. For detailed information on working with the applications, please refer to the relevant user manuals or the online help, also installed when Nero is installed. You can find the latest manuals for the individual applications and the constantly updated online help files on our website at www.nero.com.
Nero StartSmart is the completely redesigned command center of Nero 8 Ultra Edition. You simply select the desired task and the application starts up automatically. Here you can also choose the language you wish to use. Further, using your Internet connection you can check whether new program versions are available from Nero and download them.
* The scope of the specific software package which was supplied depends on the type of product bundle acquired. Therefore, the package concerned may not contain all the individual programs. Nero 8 Ultra Edition English, page 7
nVidia GeForce 6600GT, 7600GT, 7800GTX512, 7900GS, 7900GT, 7900GX, 7900GTX, 7950GT, 7950GTX, 8500, 8600, 8800, 8400M, 8600M or new ATI series X1600, X1650, X1800, X1900, X1950 or newer in one of the following board and screen combinations: PCI-Express/Onboard video board with built-in display (e.g. notebook or integrated PC) PCI-Express video board with support for DVI/HDMI and HDCP, screen/television with HDMI input or HDCP supported DVI input PCI-Express video board with VGA output and VGA monitor PCI-Express video board with component video output and video output, CGMS-A and Macrovision support, television or projector
Nero Express provides all the performance and efficiency of Nero Burning ROM with a simplified user interface. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, Nero Express guides you quickly and easily through your desired burning tasks. The default settings ensure that you automatically produce the best possible results. Using the program is remarkably easy: simply select the project to be burned, add the files, and start burning. It is just as easy to create SecurDisc discs with Nero Express and a SecurDisc supported drive. SecurDisc is a new hardware and software technology developed by Nero and HLDS with which you can create discs with special protection properties, such as data integrity, reconstructability, encryption and duplication protection. Such discs can be created with SecurDisc supported drives (e.g. from HLDS/LG and Nero Express) and read from any drive with Nero's InCD or InCD Reader.
SecurDisc Viewer is a standalone application that is part of the SecurDisc technology platform. This is the only application that allows you to open PDF documents that have been password-protected using SecurDisc and/or protected against duplication using the special SecurDisc duplication protection feature. SecurDisc duplication protection lets you effectively control the distribution of electronic documents, since the documents secured this duplication protection can only be read, not edited or sent electronically. Files protected using SecurDisc can only be distributed using an original DVD which is read by the recipient with the help of a SecurDisc drive and the SecurDisc Viewer application.
InCD is the packet writing application that allows you to format CDs/DVDs so that they can be used as big diskettes. You can copy files onto the disc using drag and drop in Windows Explorer or save them to the disc from other applications. InCD uses the UDF file system and is compatible with the UDF reader in Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The disc can be checked for errors following formatting. InCD can access data in defective sectors in file systems above UDF 2.50 thanks to its option of duplicated meta data and thus offers additional protection for data. With SmartDetect, InCD also features a technology which automatically detects the writing characteristics of recorders, even if the recorder is newer than the InCD version. Of course media written with InCD is compatible with other standard UDF software products. You can also read SecurDisc discs with InCD without SecurDisc duplication protection and without a SecurDisc supported drive.
InCD Reader reads all discs created with InCD, even on computers where InCD is not installed. If you would like to read MRW disc in drives that do not support the MRW discs format, InCD Reader functions as the so-called remapper, which is required to do this. InCD Reader can also access all discs created with SecurDisc if no SecurDisc duplication protection was applied and even if a drive is used that does not support SecurDisc.
Nero Recode allows you to copy non-copy-protected DVD-Videos to DVD, which is a method of archiving your content. If the source video exceeds 4.7 GB, it will be compressed to fit into one layer of a DVD disc without loss of quality. You can also exclude unwanted material on the source DVD from the copying process (including subtitles or soundtracks) thereby making space for additional videos or for better video quality. As an alternative, the target DVD can also be recorded on the hard drive in the form of a DVD video directory or it can be created on the hard drive as a so-called disk image. Of course, you can also choose to produce your own compilation from the contents of various (noncopyrighted) DVDs and then, for example, export the contents to the future-oriented Nero Digital MPEG-4/ H.264 AVC which can then be burned to disc. No matter whether the video is intended for playing on mobile devices or HDTV, the various export profiles allow you to adjust the output format to your requirements - and you will always receive the best quality for your respective file size thanks to the various export profiles. Thus, Nero Recode lets you copy, recompile, and recode the contents of DVs and DVDs and then to burn the results to disc.
Nero WaveEditor allows you to record pieces of music, edit the corresponding audio files, using, for example, various filters and sound optimization methods, and finally burn them using Nero Burning ROM or Nero Express. With Nero WaveEditor you edit the audio files non-destructively in real time. Thanks to an internal reference-based audio format, the editing history is simultaneously stored so that changes can also be undone. Various effects (e.g. chorus, delay, flanger, or hall), numerous tools (e.g. stereo processor, equalizer, or noise gate), sophisticated improvement algorithms (band extrapolation, noise suppression, or declicker) as well as the filters are provided to assist you in editing your files.
Nero SoundTrax is the professional application for the production of audio CDs. Instead of simply compiling audio files into a playlist for a CD as before, you can now mix or change the contents of the audio files. A number of wizards are provided to help you copy your records or cassettes to your computer in just a few steps. Thanks to the many templates, even demanding projects are no longer a problem: 5.1. Surround, 7.1 Surround - simply select the template and Nero SoundTrax opens along with the relevant tracks. In addition, the integrated Nero ScratchBox provides user-friendly functions for mixing and scratching.
Nero CoverDesigner is full-featured software for customizing cover elements such as booklets, inlays and labels. Nero CoverDesigner supports cover elements for many disc types, e.g. CD jewel case, DVD cases, multibox, maxi-CD, slim pack, business card etc. Nero CoverDesigner also supports LightScribe and LabelFlash compatible recorders that enable you to print directly onto the media.
Nero ShowTime allows you to play all digital recordings (e.g. movies, TV programs, home videos, or DVD videos) with excellent picture and sound quality. The application features a reminder function for each disc inserted and allows you to create screenshots of the video being shown during playback. Nero ShowTime supports the formats DVD-Video (also from a hard drive), VCD, SVCD, miniDVD, Nero Digital, MPEG-1/-2/-4, as well as
English, page 10
AVI - in both PAL and NTSC. The video window can be scaled or viewed in full-screen mode. The audio output of Nero ShowTime supports Dolby Digital AC3, LPCM, MPEG1/-2, and S/PDIF for digital sound. The integrated application Nero RichPreview running on a Windows Vista computer can preview video files directly in the folder.
Nero PhotoSnap allows you to edit photos and improve their quality using various optimization options. Among other things, you can rotate and cut the images, choose from a variety of effects, eliminate errors, change the resolution, and save the result in many different file formats. You can capture photos directly from a digital camera or scanner and edit them directly.
Nero PhotoSnap Viewer
Nero PhotoSnap Viewer allows you to display image and photo files and search for them in image directories.
Nero MediaHome is a certified UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) AV (Audio / Video) media server which automatically recognizes UPnP within a network. Nero MediaHome can be used to exchange audio, video and image files via the local network between the PC with MediaHome and other PCs with compatible software (e.g. Nero ShowTime, Nero Home or the Nero MediaStreaming plug-in) or UPnP devices. Nero MediaHome is a server that enables clients, that is players that request services (e.g. Nero ShowTime), to reproduce files located in released folders on the server. Thanks to Nero MediaHome, your PC can link up to other home entertainment electronics devices (for instance television sets) to create a unified media center. This gives you the option of viewing transmitted television programs via Nero MediaHome on two players simultaneously (multi-room viewing). Nero MediaHome automatically supplies the files in the appropriate format to the player in question. Nero PhotoShow Express Nero PhotoShow Express allows you to manage, make and share your digital photos. Capture, organize and edit your photos with various editing tools. Print at home or order prints online, make entertaining musical slideshows, screen savers, or order customized photo gifts. Share your special moments online with friends and family via email or through your own free website through Nero PhotoShow Circle. All this with unprecedented ease.
