I've been looking into automatic set-up of a web page thumbnail browser of a
set of pictures and I have found the following quite good.
http://www.hnm-freeware.com/ (click on web gallery creator)
can cope with TIFF (uncompressed) as well as jpeg - it can also do a webpage
Neither can do a slide show but both could be set up to auto-start on a CD
by adding "autorun.inf" as described below in the original message.
You could also set them up to produce a set of thumbnails that could be used
as a CD cover.
