displaying images for larger viewing

I'm now faced with the task of displaying images of the dance show from the weekend.

How would you do it

I was thinking of displaying them on my laptop as a slide show but how do you make is secure (so it can't be stolen)and/or giving PDF slide show CD's out with low res images and password protected say 10 to be circulated around the parents.

or the option of a flicker viewing my web site can't cope with over 200 images but it would be nice.

Personally I use Picasa to generate a low res slide show CD. Something 600 pixels is normally sufficient for viewing, but a pain to print.

You can add a horrible watermark if needed using something like IrfanView (IIRC).

A steel cable / wire - generally called a Kensington Lock which fits a small hole on the laptop.

Take out any removable DVD/CD drive.

Create a new user on the laptop with limited access and no data available except the file, then disable the USB port and other interfaces to stop it being copied and make a Powerpoint presentation which loops.

I think your PDF is the best option, you can make it so that they can only view and don't save... they could still make a screen cap though but you never can do anything about that.
Just use lower pixels.

You could also save it as a movie, X264 just brought out a code that works with blu-ray players but that you can burn on DVD, they won't work in DVD players although it should on your PC and that's a good thing because most DVD players can't handle high resolutions so you insure that your photos show up nicely
And you would sound high-tech saying it will work on blu-ray players

Pink,

I have just read the thread title again - and what people read is one thing, but what is says is another!

Maybe your "location" has something to do with it ...

Did you type the title after 10 pints of Special Brew?

I would create the slide show in PowerPoint, including the free PP viewer, using images in 640x480 resolution.
Best regards

Ok the dance school has asked for the images to be made available on line
for people to view and order from.

How do i do this, their is some 200 images to display

Flicker only permits 100 mb per month, is this a option or is there a better way

Sorry but I'm being thick as I've never done this before.

James

I really need help and have a short time to complete this.

Get yourself a Photium account. Mattmatic, Lily and I all use it.

It will work very well for you especially with sales from this sort of show. You can also have a private area and give your clients a username and password. Customer support is excellent, a good variety of templates and a very intuitive interface, you could be up and running in under an hour.

Thanks, seriously, about an hour to have something up and running. Of course it takes a while to upload loads of gallery images. For things like your dance show I now shoot RAW+ and upload the jpegs and only work on the RAW images if they are bought.

It is so easy to make changes as required and you can also upload things like .pdf and .doc files for people to download. IIRC there is a free trial period but the running costs are pretty minimal.

There is also zenfolio, I believe you can make private maps there that require a password to enter.

This Martin's site. http://martinlochmans.zenfolio.com/
I believe you will always keep Zenfolio in the webadress though...
