Hi Beverley,

The only software I know which can display without a frame of the software
itself is Powerpoint when you use it to display a Slide Show. You may be
able to put your view of the photos into a Powerpoint Slide Show (1 view per

I finally got it to work, almost exactly as I wanted. The key for me was
having the photos in the same directory as the drawing and converting the
Mr. Sid aerial photo image to tiff format. I attached the snap shots with
