Default self running slide show needed, pc to mac

I have pc, and friends that live in a different town have a mac. They are not very computer savvy, and I would like to be able to send them self running slide shows that would run on their Mac. Any help locating it? Thanks

Your best bet is likely to put your pictures into simple web pages and cut that onto a CD. If you want to have it self-running, look for Java script/applets to do that.

There's a really neat program that does exactly what you want for Windows-based systems called Digital Photo Slideshow. You can generate a web slideshow with it, too. The author is constantly refining the software, and he might be willing to add support for Mac. Check it out!

Default re: slide shows

Check out SMIL. Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language. This is a W3C standard that is browser and OS agnostic. It is HTML after all. Pretty good slide show capabilities and fairly easy to do yourself. There's even a book out on it now!
enjoy

You might want to see if Microsoft makes a power point viewer for the Mac.

I finally settled on power point to create the images since it provides a lot of creative flexibility with timing and music.
