    I went to Kenya this summer – took lots of pix with a digital camera/compact flash memory. Downloaded them into iPhoto. Now what do I do with ‘em?

    I currently have 2 Macs. A desktop G4 iMac, and a G3 Powerbook/Pismo/400. The PB is maxed out in RAM (512) but when I added Panther, found I have no memory left to do anything else, especially adding digital photos.

    I was hoping to bore a whole audience at once with a TV ‘slide show’, either iPhoto (or possibly Powerpoint?) using my PB. Bought an iTV Link. Tried burning a DVD of all my gazillion Kenya pix on my desktop G4 iMac, but I musta done something wrong cuz my PB doesn’t want to read it.

    Bottom line question: can my good ol’ G3 Powerbook handle doing a TV slide show of some type with my digital pix? If so, how? Or is it time to take the plunge and get a G4 iBook or G4 PB? If this is the option I should head for, which is better for the slide show function? Otherwise, I just use my laptop for genealogy.

    Thanks in advance!

    iPhoto does slide shows (at least, the version I have - 4.0.3 - plays slide shows).
    There is an icon at the bottom of the iPhoto window, next to the print icon.
    Sometimes the transitions can be a bit jerky, esp if a few other apps are running.

    Try it out ... only you can judge whether you are satisfied with how the Pismo handles it.

    Have fun

    Thanks for the reply!

    I have used the iPhoto slideshow before, but need to know how to take it from my G3PB/Pismo to the TV - or if that's even possible. I upgraded my PB to Panther -- that seems to have used all the memory and doesn't allow me to download my iPhoto albums/folders/database. Tried to make a DVD on my G4 iMac desktop, but my PB doesn't seem to read it. I probably did it wrong, having never done a DVD before.
