Link to a Slide.com slideshow of my pics

Published by at 8:15 pm under DIY,photography,Reviews

Slide.com is apparently a popular slideshow and picture sharing site.

I’ve had a bit of a play with it, but cannot see how to embed a slideshow in this post. Instead, I can only link to one here

Here are some thoughts on the slide.com experience…

Slide has one of those slightly frenetic looking homepages that could be described loosely as adhering to the conventions of social networking sites in both appearance and functionality. It is quite easy to select and organise a slideshow, which is as it should be. There are any number of slideshow modes to choose from and you have a variety of customisation options. There is a limited music library from which you can choose a suitable soundtrack for your images. The biggest plus is that slide makes it very easy to add your slideshow to the most popular social networking sites (eg Friendster, Bebo, MySpace, LiveJournal, etc). However, it does not appear to provide code for embedding in sites other than those listed. Instead, you are left with the less than satisfactory option of linking to your slideshow. What’s more, it would seem that the site aggressively compresses uploaded images (there is no way to control how the images are processed after uploading). The shots in the example show a fair amount of degradation from the originals.Click here to see how it works.
