View Full Version : Include Original Image Files on the VideoCD

When I first tried the demo download of XATshow (some 4 months ago),

Many thanks Robin,
I already knew where the programs are but I was just trying to say that I w
as sure one of the betas stored images as I remember trying it. But I have
been sticking with the latest stable version for some time as it does what
I want it to and produces good image shows.
