Is there any way I can have a slideshow of my photos on my Archos AV500? Archos Photo Slideshow can help you convert photos to Archos Movie AVI/MP4 and create photo slideshow playable on Archos AV500, GMini402, AV700, etc. The steps are as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Click the "ORGANIZE PHOTOS" tab to create one or more photo albums. Drag and drop photos from your computer hard drive to the album.
There are four sub-menus under this tab:
Album Photo: You can add or remove photos, rotate photos, set album thumbnail, arrange the order of the photos, etc.
Note: Double click one single photo in the album and you will be able to personalize the photos (transition, Pan & Zoom, Text, ArtClips, Subtitle, Brightness / Contrast, etc.) one by one in the "Photo Configuration" window.
Transition & Music: You can set background music, specify transition effect/duration, photo duration, randomize photo transitions, etc.
To set background music for the album, you can add a song from your computer hard drive, insert an audio CD and rip it with the built-in Audio Ripper, record your own voice, etc. You can trim your favorite music clip and also add more than one song as the background music to fit the length of the slideshow.
Album Theme: There are lots of album themes available for you to choose from. You may also add separate photos to the beginning and end of the album, and edit album beginning title and ending title, such as text, effect, duration, background color, etc.
Album Preview: Preview the whole album before the conversion
After making all necessary settings above, choose "Create -> Create Archos Movie".
You can also click the "Burn Disc" tab on the interface of Archos Photo Slideshow and choose "Archos Movie" from the "Output Format" list.
In the "Parameter Settings" panel, you can specify output directory, profile (according to your device), and video/audio parameters such as video bitrate, size, codec, frame rate and audio codec, bitrate, sample rate, channel.
Click the "Create Now!" button to starting creating slideshow video for viewing on your Archos player.
After the whole conversion process, you can get the output .mp4 or .avi slideshow video file in the default output directory or the one you specified.
Then you can feel free to transfer the slideshow to Archos AV500, GMini402, AV700, etc. and enjoy it.
