Showing images to clients

    Hi all,

    I've seen some pros using a peice of software I think is called Studio View, or View Studio, I'm not quite sure.

    At any rate, this might not be what I'm after. Essentially, I want to take a laptop and a widescreen monitor to a clients house for them to view portraits I've taken at a previous shoot. I want some software that I can show the photos as a full screen on the external monitor, but on the laptop screen, be able to control the photos.

    I'd like to be able to do the basics, show a slide show, add and remove photos from the collection, but I'd also like to be able to do things like simple B&W and Sepia effects to show the client an example of what it might look like.

    So, does anyone have any ideas? There's a few things I've tried, for example, Picasa will do everything I need, but not with the dual screen setup (I don't want the clients to see what i'm up to!) also, Lightroom can almost do what I want, but again, not with dual screens.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mike Pearce

    Does your laptop permit you to as an external monitor as a desktop extension? If so, you need to identify software that has a control panel that may be detached from the actual image viewing area so you drag the image viewing area to the clients screen and keep the editing console on yours.
