ProShowGold - File Sizes and Matting Look

I use ProShowGold and am trying to put together a slide show, but am wanting to make my photos look matted by using Canvas Size in Photoshop to add a white mat around the photos. What size should I make the photos and what size should I make the canvas matt so they all are the same size? I am making a DVD slideshow if that makes a difference. Thank you all for your help and responses. I really appreciate it.

I don't know, but Laura O'connor does some beautiful work with that program.
You can find her on the Studio Photography Thread.
I hope this link will get you to her contact page, shes wonderful and always willing to help if she can.

Best of luck,

  Hi Kerry,

Yes, I took the 8-week course when Jon was teaching it. I have emailed this question to him and awaiting for the directions on how to do this. I hope to have them soon so I can get started. I hit a dead end here as you can see, not much going on.

Michele :)

  Thank you Debby for the referral to Laura. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to help me out here.

  Hi interesting discussion here. I have a question that's related to this..Does anyone know of a software program that allows you to burn CD's or DVD's that are copyrighted in some way so that clients cannot copy the pictures. I would like to be able to use this instead of printed proofs but still ensure that they order reprints from me.

Thanks for any ideas

  Some commercial programs that I have tried allowed me to make full use of the program on a trial basis, but they had so many watermarks on the photos that I produced that I was forced to either buy the program or look for something else.
