Splitting a show into multiple parts in ProShow
At the moment ProShow doesn’t have a feature or one-click solution to split a single show into multiple shows. However, since ProShow supports the copy and paste function in Windows you can utilize this function to copy the slides in a show and paste them into a secondary show of your choice.
DPI doesn’t apply when working with digital content in ProShow
DPI has NOTHING to do with your digital image quality. Dots Per Inch (DPI) is a measurement only relevant to printing. Many software programs use DPI to set image quality and this leads to confusion. The more relevant factor in digital image quality is Pixel Dimension. Focusing on this value instead will allow you to accurately establish the quality of your digital images for use in ProShow. Leave DPI to the print world.
Merging multiple shows together in ProShow
At the moment ProShow doesn’t have a feature or one-click solution to merge multiple shows into one single show. However, since ProShow supports the copy and paste function in Windows you can utilize this function to copy the slides in a show and paste them into a secondary show of your choice.

Making a Live show in ProShow Producer
A live show is an Executable that can dynamically pull images from a folder on your hard drive as the show plays. Perfect for event photography, or a photo studio. This allows you to change images as the show plays, without the need to stop and rebuild the show.
Getting show to fit on a DVD
If you are trying to output your slide show to a DVD and it doesn’t fit. Try cutting down on total show duration. You can shorten your slide or transition time or remove slides to cut down on time. The idea is to make sure the show you are working with doesn’t exceed 1 hr in duration (if using DVD SP) and the file size of the DVD doesn’t exceed the 4.7 gb limitation set by the DVD media.
