    Hi Guys,

    Does anyone know what file formats are supported for photos on the HDR1000S?

    All my photos are JPGs (which I thought was the most common for photos) but when I try to view "play" them I get a file not supported error message.

    Regards,

    Paul

    The HDR-1000S has only the capacity for smaller picture sizes, could that be the problem?

    What size in pixels are they ? Remember the box has to scale them down to fit a display that likely only has 1920 x 1080 pixels and a 16:9 frame format, if no black borders are required.

    Also check they weren't saved in progressive jpeg format.

    Right click on a file and choose properties.

    Hi Graham,

    Here's the file info for one of the images (taken by my phone).

    Width 4128 Pixels
    Height 2322 Pixels
    Horizontal Resolution 72DPI
    Vertical Resolution 72DPI
    Bit Depth 24
    Resolution Unit 2
    Colour Representation sRGB

    I can't find any mention of progressive jpeg.

    Regards,

    Paul

    Can you upload an example to file share site. I will open it in photoshop and rescale it and upload as a test. that's a very high res image

    To fit a 16:9 display requires the horizotal and vertical res to be 1920 x 1080 ( divide both by 2.15).

    srgb is just the colour space.

    If you want to try yourself

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/resize-image/9p87m9tknkvl?activetab=pivot%3aoverviewtab

    Set the output to 1920 x 1080.

    Hi Graham,

    I resized a few images and they "play" perfectly.

    I would never have considered that the image size would be an issue (probably because I have never tried to view Photos on TV).

    Thanks for your advice (perfect as usual).

    Regards,

    Paul

    There is some software around that will automate the process, if you have office word can do it.

    Consider creating a slide show with music and transitions

    Hi Graham,
    The automated stuff looks beyond me but the Microsoft Resize Image app works a treat.
    All I have to do is right click the file and open it with resize image.
    For the amount I use it, I can manage that way.
    Thanks again,
    Regards,
    Paul
