He sent me the "tags" that are supposed to initiate the auto launch. I have not had opportunity to try this myself yet. However I do not doubt that this will work because I value this persons input.
From what I have observed. This would auto launch when the cd is inserted in the drive. From there the viewer would have the ability to manually select and access each of the galleries, individual prints, and other pertinant information. I think that this has appeal in a different way from a slide show. The big thing is that it brings the viewer into an active role. The easy way to describe this would be that it is akin to a website on cd.
I have Frontpage and so it won't be difficult for me to try this out. Perhaps in the next several days. I will keep you informed of my progress.
