I just used Nero VisionExpress 2 to create a photo slideshow and burned it as a VCD. Photos look terrible! (They’re really not, though!).
I also created and burned the same slideshow on Paint Shop Photo Album 5, and the photo quality is tremendous.
What gives? I used the exact same folder of photos, all taken with Konica 6.0 megapixel digital, normal quality @ 1600 x 1200 px.
I like the look and transitions of the Nero show much better, and the audio timing seems to work better. But the photos render terribly. Same exact photos on PSPA5 look great, but boring transitions, and I can’t get the soundtrack synched as well.
Any clue as to why the same photos look so bad on Nero and so good on Paint Shop Album? (All .jpg, approx. 700k each).
