How to : View your pictures and make slideshows with ACDSEE Classic

I have been using ACDSEE Classic since 1998. Same version is working with Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows 2K and Windows XP. It is a software to view pictures, convert picture types one to another and make slideshows. It is working absolutely perfect. Very small application only 1.78 MB.

Unfortunately none of the Windows operating systems come with a good picture viewing software. So we must find a software to view them nicely in Full Screen Mode, Shrink capability, Loading fast, Thumbnail view of pictures and Nice time adjustable slideshows. If you are looking for a software like that here it is ACDSEE Classic.

Note that this software is not capable of editing pictures, does not have lots of features like red-eye tool, cropping tool or publishing tools. There is a latest version called ACDSEE Pro which can view, process, edit, organize, catalog, publish, and archive your photo collections with the precision and control demanded by photographers. I prefer to use Adobe Photoshop instead. It is your choice of course.

For SlideShow Options select the tab Slideshow tab on the picture above and you will see a menu like below. Set how many seconds you want for the slide show (Time between 2 pictures).

To start a slide show : Right click on the picture while you are viewing it then select 3rd command on the top Slideshow .

You might need to convert file types especially if the subject is pictures. Assume you have got an image file in BMP format size is 1.5MB when you convert it JPG file size reduce to 150 KB (1/10th) with the same quality of picture.
