Contrasts – After living in the UK for 57 years and Australia for over 10 years. A visit back to the UK provided the idea to contrast the two countries in this sequence. I think the music alone will easily indicate the division between images of the UK and those taken in Australia. Download Here.
Surf’s up Schools out – One afternoon/evening in Noosa National Park. The tide was right, the surf was up and the surfers were out. In this sequence the music adds quite a lot and the images are presented in a non tradition audio visual way. Its a short sequence little more than 3.5 minutes. Download from Here

Scotland, A Brief Moment in Time – This Audio Visual was the result of a 2014 visit from Australia to the UK and a week we spent in Scotland. As you will see here, we have mixed pictorial images, with commentary adding facts and a bit of geology to the sequence. PicturesToExe can handle it all, including recording the commentary, if you have a mic of course. Download Here
Red Balloons – Sometimes we are inspired by the images we shoot, sometimes its the music that sparks an idea. This piece of music by Katie Melua has always been a favorite. Fortunately, by the time I got the idea for this sequence, I had already amassed quite a few hot air balloon shots, so I had the content I needed to create this sequence. Many of the balloons required complex cutouts, which our Photoshop Selections videos demonstrate. Download Red Balloons Here
PTE AV Studio Facts – Slide Styles & Transitions – PTE AV Studio offers well over a hundred customizable slide styles, themes and transition effects. Each slide style allows you to easily adjust several parameters of the animation. Create new slide styles, themes and transitions and share with other users.
A Journey into Photography – This sequence followed a 7 week photographic road trip we took down the East Coast of Australia and along the great ocean road. It combines a travelogue, with a little photographic instruction, but with many pictorial elements too. A mixture of AV techniques with quality images to hold the attention of the viewer. I hope!

Inclement Weather – Following a holiday back to the UK in 2014 I found the images and inspiration for Inclement Weather. If it demonstrates one thing. It’s that we can still capture great images without a hint of blue sky. Sound effects are used here to add to the atmosphere along with multiple music choices. Multiple soundtracks can be mixed together in the Time line of PTE AV Studio/PicturesToExe very easily. Download the presentation here
PTE AV Studio Facts – What are Slide Styles – Absolutely any effect, transition and animation we can create with an image/video can be saved as a Slide Style. The style can then be applied to one or a hundred other images and shared between other users of this software, via import and export. Check out Animation & Slide Style videos here. Our Slide Style Page is here
Loco’s in Steam – Here is an attempt at irony, because the locos are not in steam. This sequence was awarded third place in 2015 Queensland Salon of Excellence and includes some original poetry too. You can see how creative and interesting audio visual can be. Look for the time lapse of the train coming up a grade. It’s easy to achieve using PTE AV Studio/PicturesToExe slideshow software and an image editor. Download Locos in Steam here
Living on the Edge – In Australia, the majority of the population lives on the edge, the coastal regions around the country. This sequence allows us to present the drama of the Australian Coast in monochrome, infra red and a little colour. The whole sequence runs for less than 3 minutes and allows us to create impact with careful synchronization of images to music. Always the key to great audio visual. Download Living on the Edge Here
