Sliding into a New Audience
Slide Show = Terminal Boredom. (circa 1960s & 70s)
With digital images there is a massive range of devices, you probably already have, that can be used to display your photos. Computers, TVs, Phones (yes pretty well all new mobile/cell phones come with nice coloured screens, even if they don't come with cameras).Yet there are few technical issues, like calibration of the screen, resolution, media, format and possibly what software to use. If you have ever had a digital photo printed and conpared that with the same image, displayed full screen, on your computer you'll know what I mean. Its just not the same (generally the screnn image is way better). Yet the key objective in my mind of exploiting these new media of light, is avoiding the fear of total boredom that the old slide nights conjured up!
Slide Show => Good use of a Terminal Screen (maybe)
