    The Directors Cut

    Version 1.0.0


    There is no real theme here, just PicturesToExe being used as a vehicle to show images that otherwise may not be seen

    The Storm Season

    Version 1.0.0


    Through a little good luck and a bit of planning my Son and I were out in the countryside during storm season on the Sunshine Coast of Australia. This storm appeared very quickly from a hot sunny day. My son had his Mavic Pro Drone and I was using my Canon SLR. These are the images that we captured, with just one or two others added from other photoshoots to make up the numbers.

    Red Balloons

    Version 1.0.0


    Red Balloons was inspired by the music called Red Balloons by Katie Melua. Fortunately, by the time this music became available I had been to the Bristol Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in the UK many times over a number of years, so I did have a number of images to select from. Many of those used in flight had to be removed from their original backgrounds. This was achieved using Photoshop's Layers and Selections. The cut-outs also had to be done with a degree of patience and care. We needed to make sure the balloon baskets remained attached to the balloons by the fine cables that hold things together. Another problem is making sure that I didn't have any unsightly halos around the balloons after they were cut out.

    The Drones are Coming

    Version 1.0.0


    This was a very quickly created slideshow with images shot from a Dji Mavic Pro Drone during a few weeks holiday in Australia by my son. The Mavic Pro is a great piece of kit that opens up enormous possibilities for photographers. Although it only captures 12mp, these images were all taken in Raw format.

    Sand Soda and Limestone

    Version 1.0.0


    A technique I first used in an AV back in my film days some 20 years ago, but brought up to date and into the digital age. Its pretty good fun too. Use your PC monitor as a light, colour and texture source for transparent subjects like glass.

    A Journey into Photography

    Version 1.0.0


    Audio Visual can be used in a wide variety of ways, but for me personally I use it as a vehicle to display my images. Therefore the quality of those images is the most important thing to me. However, we still need an angle or a hook to provide a framework for what we are doing. In this presentation I have used commentary and limited information to allow me to display a variety of images from every place we visited on a recent trip. I have also broken a cardinal rule of AV, but the least said about that, the better. Hopefully the quality of the presentation and the images, will overcome that....

    Another great set of images, especially from a brief stop. I recall a visit to Chania in 2008 just before we left for Australia and your slide show prompted me to look at the images that I have on an internal drive on my PC. I particularly remember that sticky uppy thing on the sea wall. Great show

    I am inexperienced at this, but you have to be impressed that once I found I had to award a star to post my reply, I awarded the minimum number I could.

    Living on the Edge

    Version 1.0.0


    Following a recent 7 week road trip down the East and South Coast of Australia, this is the first images of that trip presented as an audio visual. It sums up the drama and fascination we have with the sea and the music that accompanies the images must also be dramatic.

    PicturesToExe 9 Promo

    Version 1.0.0


    Better late than never. I was a long way from home when the new software was released, but spent some time creating the attached with the help of Igor of course.

    You have caught something a bit special here with these images and the music you have chose. It was a great choice and has allowed you to capture that special feeling and atmosphere we are looking for in audio visual. The final result is definitely much greater than the sum of the two parts. I really liked those two old boats and I could spend a couple of hours on each of those boats alone, they are so interesting. Then there are the other images, many would stand alone anywhere, the old boathouse with the two swans is a belter among many. Its the light and being in the right place at the right time, which I know you are well aware of or you wouldn't have taken such a great set of images So many fair weather photographers miss the best light while waiting for “nicer” weather. Keep em coming.

    Maureen, you managed to cover a lot of ground in you're couple of hours and all great quality images as usual. Great work and it is rather nice there isn't it?

    Civil War

    Version 1.0.0


    Filters applied to images have not been very well accepted in the digital age and some of the blame for that can be laid at the door of some photographers. Those who think that adding a filter effect to a badly composed and exposed image, will make it appealing. Sadly, it will not. The trick, in my view, is to use filters to create something more unique and for that we need to put in just a little effort, thought and creativity. The technique for creating the images you will see in this slide show is available as a video download from our Photoshop MasterClass section HERE
