How to make photo slideshows look good on TV

What to do when slideshow display quality is poor

QUESTION - DVD slideshows that I've created in Windows Movie Maker and DVD Maker display fine on my PC, but look awful on my TV. I used the 720p burn option. David Haynes

HELPROOM ANSWER It's likely that the resolution of the photos in your slideshows is too low to look good when displayed on a large-screen TV. With high-resolution images, the 720p DVD-quality option should produce a good picture on even a 1080p (full-HD) TV.

Check your image sizes before you commit them to disc. If you have shrunk or resized the photos before editing them, this may result in them not displaying with as much detail as you expect. Also check your DVD or TV settings to see whether the images are being stretched to fit the screen.
