Most newer DVD players can read and play photos fromCD's or DVD's. So you can burn your photos to a CD, pop it into the DVD player and share your photos right on your TV. Think of it as your grandad's slide shows for a new generation.
Be sure to read your DVD player's manual. Not all models can read photos from CD or DVD... and you wouldn't want to get everyone gathered around the TV to watch a blank screen.
If your DVD player can't read photo files, you may still be able to use your TV as a digital photo viewer. Many digital cameras offer you another option: They connect directly to your TV and play back a slide show stright from the memory card.
This digital camera feature can be great fun at family gatherings. You can shoot the celebration, edit out the bad shots right on the camera, plug into the TV and play back all the fun while everyone's still there. (It's also an easy way tofind out who wants copies of which pictures.)
