You can not produce a self-executing slideshow file from Premiere Elements.
Premiere Elements can produce a slideshow in a number of video formats, including AVIs, MOVs, AVCHDs, MPEGs, FLVs and MP4s. The PC version of the program can also produce slideshow in PDF format.
If you need to produce a slideshow as an .exe, you're best staying with Pro Show Gold.
Thanks! I assume that also applies to straight Photoshop Elements.
Yes, as well as the Elements Organizer.
I will be running a competition in which exe files are needed so they can be played on any computer. I would appreciate any suggestions.
I hope your competition goes well. I suggest though that you thoroughly scan each submitted file for virus and malware on an isolated machine first. While not suggesting your competitors would deliberately infect their entry but if their own machines were unknowingly infected by (say) a trojan that could potentially infect the executables they create for your competition.
If it was me I'd request files in a standard format (e.g. WMV) that is readable by just about any media playing software such as Windows Media Player.
