Photo Show Pro STe supports Kodak Photo CD on the Atari STe and allows the user to create scripted slide shows and presentations that make maximum use of the built in hardware capabilities of the Atari STe.
Photo Show Pro STe has all the features of the Falcon version with the exception of true color support. Images are show in 16 shade dithered monochrome or color. For best use we suggest the 16 shade grayscale mode.
Photo Show Pro has over thirty different fades and disolves when creating scripts, allows overlay of text on graphics in your choice of system colors, screen fades to black or white, inverse colors, and image overlays. Photo Show scripts can be created directly from CD using the Kodak Photo CD PCD format or created from disk using the FTC 16 bit true color format. All effects are super smooth, even when running under MultiTOS.
Digitized sound files in AVR format can scripted along with graphics allowing the user to add commentary, sound effects, or background music to their presentations.
For creating titles, Photo Show Pro displays 24-bit BMP files in the Microsoft Windows bitmap format in either greyscale of dithered colors.
Photo Show Pro can be used with a RGB (Atari monitor), and standard broadcast televisions. Slide shows and presentations can be recorded to VCR using either RF output of the STe.
Full 16 bit color with correct aspect ratios are displayed on all monitor types except monochrome.
Photo Show Pro will auto show your Kodak Photo CD graphics using 16 different effects directly from your Photo CD discs. A special Corel mode allows the same auto shows using the Corel series of Photo CD images. Corel has released over 450 theme discs of Kodak Photo CD graphics with each disc containing 100 images.
You can take pictures with your 35 mm camera and have them developed to Kodak Photo CD format at 1,000's of locations all over the country.
Here's a picture of my daughter Irene and her cousin Rebecca taken at our last visit to Sea World.
This GIF file has been optimized with Photo Show Pro for grayscale viewing on a STe computer. It is best viewed with a graphics program that does 16 shade grayscale on your machine and is quarter screen to keep transfer time to a minimum.
Conversions can be made to 16-bit FTC, 24-bit TIF, 24-bit EPS, and 24-bit RAW formats from Kodak Photo CD's PCD format. Image conversions can be done in pixel resolutions of 192 by 128 up to 3072 by 2048. You can create a 3072 by 2048 color EPS file, over 36 meg in size, on a 2 meg STe.
For best use we suggest ExtenDOS Pro by Anodyne Software.
