Ah, yes, Picasa 3 and the like. I love the programs, but they are what they
are for, and despite the many useful features of Picasa, F-spot, and others,
they just don't make an honest to goodness movie presentation where I can
control the features of each and every frame separately, and adjust sound
tracks to properly fill the right spaces and so on. Hence my original email.
But thanks for the suggestion at any rate - much appreciated.
I have also in the past tried to use Presentation-style software, but it has
never quite been as polished and smooth as I need.
