This series of posts has followed my progress and approach I have taken to handle the more than 1600 photos and video clips I took on a two-week tour of Scandinavia, now more than two months ago. Those of you who have been following this series have probably been wondering why I have not posted any recent progress reports on this project. Part 6 of this series was posted way back on September 12th.
All of my travel occurred over a relatively short time span. Since the first of August, I went on my annual backpacking trip to the Sierras, the Scandinavian tour, a long weekend trip to the Bay area, and a long weekend trip to Zion and Bryce Canyon a week or so ago. I came back from each of these trips with a large number of photos and video clips.
Now that I am done travelling for some time, I can spend more time working with my photos.
I have completed slide shows for the various pieces or segments of my trip to Scandinavia. The only thing I need to do now is to add the background music and then publish them to share with family and friends. I plan is to have music from each of the three countries I visited, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. My first project using these slide shows will be a DVD with menus. At this point, I am not sure which program I will use for making the DVD from my slide shows. I will either use Adobe’s Premiere Elements 10, or DVD Maker that comes with Vista and Windows 7. My next post, and most likely the last in this series will cover this last phase of the project, combining the slide show segments, adding background music, and finally burning the DVD.
With any kind of luck, Part 7 will not take nearly so long to get posted as this one did.
