After you’re done editing your presentation, you can choose between several save presets, or you can manually change the quality settings. Of course, there are some limitations to the software, such as the ability to add up to 200 pictures in a single batch. There are also limitations regarding image size, so if you use a high-resolution digital camera, you might have to resize your pictures before you can import them to Photo Story.
