This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Where Can I Find Free Easy SlideShow Program Online?

I'm looking for a slideshow program online that I can make a slideshow with.

I was using onetruemedia as I have in the past but now they won't let you add captionings to the slideshow photos unless you PAY for it and I am not willing to pay for it at this point, not to mention I can't afford to.

so where do you get your slideshows done??

I heard Flickr was one option so I tried that but I couldn't figure it out at all. What a pain.

If you use flicker, HOW do you use it? I can't figure it out and that just frustrates me!!!!

Sorry, I'm not that great with this stuff. I just use flickr to upload photos, never videos.

Picassa is a free photo thingy... on the web, included in your google account. From your gmail screen, on the top left, you will see a link that says "more". click it. select "Photos" from the drop down box that comes up.

Create new album. Upload photos. Get persistant link to album (by choosing "link" on the right hand side to get the link to your album.)

In your email to whomeever you are sending this to, tell them to click the link to the album. Then they have to click "slideshow" from the right hand side, and it will run the show of the photos in the album for them.

Should be easy peasy! I didn't look into putting captions on the photos, but I assume you can because when you start the slide show it gives you the option to turn the captions off.

Piccassa is completely free and can be used over the web or downloaded to your PC. I like it and find it very easy to use, but it is sort of limited in what it can do. but hey, it's FREE!

Ok, from the help files in Flickr:

How do I share a slideshow?

Easy! Just start a slideshow and click the Share link in the upper right of the screen. From there just grab the URL or even get the code to embed your slideshow on another site.

How do I view a slideshow?

We automatically create slideshows for you in most of the places you want them around Flickr. Keep your eyes peeled for slideshow links at the top of the page on photostreams, tag pages, set pages, group pools and search results.

When you're in a slideshow, use the controls at the bottom to pause or play. Click the photo or video to see more info, or click Help to view all the controls. You can even change the speed or play it backwards using the Options menu!

And by all means, click the full screen icon on the bottom right, sit back, and enjoy the show

Ok, see if that helps. (I found this stuff on the bottom of the page in the Help link, then on the FAQ page.)
