Ccdtovcd - Creating digital photo albums

Questions or comments? Contact me at Good luck!

Ccdtovcd allows the creation of a digital photo album stored on a cd using the VCD or SVCD format that can be viewed on a salon DVD player. Stunning quality pictures can be created using high resolution mpeg stills (704x576).

Ccdtovcd is unique amoung the digital photo album creation tools as it produces a fully navigational tree-like sequence of independent MPEG still images, rather than a long movie of changing pictures. It offers an easy to use java-based (swing) graphical interface that steps through the process of creating a digital photo album, from gathering pictures to burning a cd. It relies on various freely available products to perform some operations that would otherwise be time consuming to implement.
