. . . . saved slideshow in the 16.9 format but do not like it as they all look dumpy and large, how do I change it to do a normal size show now I have saved it. . . . .
Assuming you mean people and objects, this is a common problem where you stretch for example a 4:3 image to fit 16:9.
Did you use adjust images to fill the screen option in the project settings? If so I would advise you to turn this off for all future projects.
To fix the current project you can either:
change the project settings to match the aspect ratio of the images/video on the timeline
reset the size / position on the images/video to let the program automatically pillar box or letter box the images/video ie it puts black borders left and right or top and bottom respectively
Crop the images to fit the 16:9 aspect ratio - this can be done Photostory using the fX, Size, animation, Section and select from the effect dropdown either like slideshow or the aspect ratio you require and select the section to be used.
I am thick I think, I am editing a slideshow using Full frame 35mm camera images and require them to be in a 16.9 format background, but with no distortion, I read a piece of information that said put this size into wherever? and it will work it did but I have forgotten what it said, should have written it down.
Problem need bit bye bit account where to go and enter it all, is it better to satrt again and delete all my work, or is there a work round, as I dont even seem to be able to get 16.9 now I have saved it in 4.3 format, sorry guys old age I think.
It seems to be only you who is willing to put yourself out to answer questions, and I thank you for that,
I think I will start again, but sometime ago a person put a pixel setting when using when using 16.9 I need to have a color background on the 16.9 but retain my camera images without distortion, and he had done this, like an idiot I done what he suggested and t was great, I then forgot to write it down for reference.
I have done a standard project in the old tv format but it looks awful on 16.9.
