Choices - we all have 'em from cheap used frames to large screen 4k TVs. To each his own.

What I have is PTE, a slide show creator with the option to make an MP4 out of the slide show. This means that I can make an MP4 with all the transitions and effects I want. Then any hardware media player can plug into to any HDMI equipped TV of any size. If you want it even simpler, get a Roku TV and use the included Roku Media Player and a flash drive with your MP4 on it.

Re: Your mentioning of PTE.....

Long time user of ProShow Gold but never really used it enough and now that company has folded its tent and departed before I really got involved thoroughly.

So what to replace it and hopefully improve on it?

Is PTE the best thing around or are there any others in that league, or better?

Any advice or comments welcome, thanks.

You can use video editing software to make a photo slideshow. Transitions, music and sound effects, movement/panning, etc.

But there a couple of things I haven't gotten a video editor to do. For instance the slideshow software I previously used ( MySlideShow Gold, which I haven't investigated in years ) could compile the slideshow into a Windows executable file.
