Nige, Mike, and Neal...
Thank you. I have downloaded a trial version of a slide show presentation. This does what I want it to do at this point. It is a self executing program in which my cover page opens and then progresses through my images with a transition of a couple of seconds between images.
As I get further into this I may want to customize this more completely to make the presentation more professional. However at this point this seems to be a nice way to get one's images into public awareness.
