    I'm using DVD Lab Pro to do a DVD slideshow

    I exported all my slides out of Microsoft Powerpoint as bitmaps (.bmp)

    I then imported these bitmaps into DVD Lab Pro and set them as backgrounds and slides for the slideshow.

    Problem is, when I compile the project and run the DVD these bitmap images have reduced in quality...noticably!

    Can anyone please tell me why this happens and if it can be rectified?

    I tried converting the bitmaps to JPEGs and PNGs, finding the same problem.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    What size are they?
    Save them as large as possible, in jpg format.
    ie, 720x480 on a computer looks good, on a DVD, not so good.
    Try and get double that if possible.

    Thanks rebootjim!

    When exporting the JPGs from Powerpoint, how do I decide on the resolution i.e. to get them as large as possible?

    I have no idea. Never used powerpoint.
    I do all my graphics in Paintshop Pro, or Photoshop.
