I've just upgraded to PSE12 and it works fine in most instances. Howver when I try to create a slideshow from a selection of photos it simply stops working and then crashes. Is this a common occurrence?
Are you using high resolution images? If so try re-sizing first and then add the images to the slideshow. If your photo aspect ratio is 3:2 dimensions of 1125 x 750 at 72ppi will usually work well. You can batch process a set of duplicates into a new folder from expert mode:
File >> Process Multiple Files
Thanks for your response but the issue seems not to be related to the images. I've tried smaller imaages, as you suggested, but the function simply won't launch. It crashes before I even get the chance to add any images. If I select the images beforehand, the same thing happens. I will try reinstalling the program but I have done that once already - to little effect.
