> Photo Galary offers several options for presentation themes. These include Classic, Fade, Pan and Zoom, etc. These are built into the software package. one mearly clicks on the theme option he wishes to use and clicks play. This has worked before and as far as i can tell by reading microsoft description it should work on computers with 3.0 or higher WinSat score. I have noticed occasionally that I get a stutter when switching between windows, however this is rare.. There is no problem using slide presentations using the classic theme or fade theme.
