    Be aware of the following:

    When in Slideshow mode, Apple TV consistently, regardless of mode (720p, 1080i) will clip 36 pixels off the top AND 36 pixels of the bottom of any image it displays.

    When parading by images, when you it is displaying the contents of a photo album, all appear 100% fine. When you select the "slide the images up in a layered display" they are all displayed 100%.

    With the Ken Burns effect on OR off, Apple TV seems to reserving 72 pixels for possible photo/image sliding. Seems like a bug that if I turn off the Burns effect, it still reserves those 76 pixels.

    I did extensive testing with Photoshop drawings as I could not figure out what was going on. It is extremely difficult to notice with a photo, unless you have a head shot, where you can see the top of a head (or some other image) right near the top of the photo. Tell me it's not clipped in slideshow view.

    I have reported this as a bug to Apple.

    I have noticed this exact same thing... THANK YOU much for your efforts on figuring this out...

    From now on I will ad that 36 pixel bleed which in 72 DPI is .5 " so I guess just ad a guide for a half inch on the top and bottom and keep the important stuff about another half inch away from that as well.

    Good looking Mikie
