Great photos Ian- really enjoyed watching your slideshow. Which part of June were you walking this? I walked the same terrain at the beginning of June 2008, and it was still very green and quite muddy and cold at times. I was amazed by how hot and dry it all looked!
Enjoyed watching your photos too. They are great and brought many WARM memories to my mind.
I walked the same part of the Frances in May this year and the weather was sunny, warm, almost hot (some days 33 ° Celcius) it rained about two half days. But the camino was dry, no muddy to walk on. So Margaret the weather can be so different different years.
Hi Margaret and Annie
thanks for your comments,yes it was very warm-the tips of my ears became very sunburnt-I started in Sjpp on the 10th June and finished in Santiago the end of July.the link to part two http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnplssUNy_Y
there's a pic of Magic from the Forum (she went native and had the time of her life) also a pic of Paddy and Rebs front door.
following your footsteps next april Margaret and walking from Le Puy-hope I do as well as you did.
Ian great pictures what software did you use to get the photos to pan in and out ,great music on part two, who's the artist ? i start my camino on 1st september and would love to be able to create a visual diary to show the folks back home
Thankyou Magaret I didn't realize this was the case I rush home from work to read what posts I can and then sleep ready for the next days work. I can't wait to start my camino and get out of the rat race and enjoy life a little
There are many commercial (US$ 49 to US$159) software for making slideshows with transition and other effects which makes the photos pan and zoom in and out, also the usual fading from slide to slide etc. Most "freeware" will do simple transitions and the best free software which has no time limitation or leave a bookmark until you buy their full program is MemoriesonWeb.
It is better than many commercial products: you can select tens of photos and load it unattended in the programs, this can be done whilst you are doing something else; you can preview the loaded pictures for editing and removal or change of sequence after it has been loaded; you can add music and commentaries and text to the slide show; you can add video clips; it has a very generous catalogue of transitions such as pan, zoom, leaf turning, shutters, too many to describe; you can put the finished slideshow direct on youtube but as it is so easy to use take care it does not go over the 10 or so minutes allowed per episode. Amazing free stuff.
Previous photos posted on this forum can be retro-edited using this software to put in the effects.
