Well I had not realised how difficult it was to get a video uploaded to YouTube and the hints some of you gave me on another thread were much appreciated. I mention this as it may be useful to others.
After a few attempts and failing to upload I combed the web for further answers and discovered the principal item stopping me was an earlier version of FLASH.
Then the sizing, this must be under 10 minutes and a 100Mb - frame size 320X240. DivX (DivXConverter) came to my rescue as I had to convert my original video to the size mentioned above. I got near to this as you will see a slightly smaller size when viewing the link below.

The video is based on the Isles of Scilly which we visited last year (August 2007) It is a series of still pix with music which runs for a little over five minutes.

If you do take a look and enjoy it I would be most pleased if you post the link on to friends.

Excellent Barr1e, very well put together, really enjoyed it, looks like you had a great time and the weather looked fantastic, where was the rain?

BTW what is the music? sounds sort of familier but can't place it.

Cheers
Neil:)

Barrie,

Nicely put together :)

What software did you use?

Neil -

Thanks.

We had a great week's weather with calm seas making Island visits a daily pleasure. The music on the first part of the video I chose from the film 'Ladies in Lavender' and the second was Brahms Lullaby.

Jim -

I used Pinnacle Studio 10 (I've now upgraded to Studio11) which I use for my video editing. Then, as mentioned used DivX Converter to downsize for use on YouTube. Thanks for your kind comments.

No Problem Barr1e, you have taken time to make the video only takes 6 mins to watch it.

Well done

I really enjoyed it. This kind of software is generating real creativity making it so much easier to tell a story with pictures. I use Pro Show Gold and a few of us at my club fell in love with it and started a sub-group for AV work. Twenty of our members turned up for the first meeting. I think this kind of thing is going to take off. Anyway, loved yours Barr1e. :)

Lovely video Barrie, it looks as though you had a great time when you were there, great shots.

Especially like the change of music at the end...:)

Meogeo -

Thanks Geoff.

Photocracy -

Rob - it's fun to do - I have been 'at it' for a few years now and continue to derive much pleasure from it. All the best.

the MusicMan -

Music is one of my loves too - as I get more mature in years I have that problem of recognising the piece I am listening to but can't remember who composed or sung what. Thanks John.

Our download speed isn't what it might be, so I've been hopping back and to so I can watch this series of pictures and enjoy the music.

I admire anybody who can put something like this together as a memory of a lovely holiday.

I've got a 'thing' about stained glass. Could you tell me what the words are on that lovely window on Bryher?

Hi Ellie -

Thanks for persevering with the video.

I like to take pix of stained glass as it can present quite a challenge. The one I took on Bryer - Isles of Scilly was rather rushed and not taken with an Olympus camera.

The wording is as follows:

Behold the Lilies of the field
How they grow
They coil not
Neither do they spin

The window was made on the main Island - St. Mary's
