1/14/05 Slide shows on DVD

by Lee Koo (ADMIN) ModeratorCNET staff - 1/12/05 4:58 PM

Thank you Rachel and everyone who submitted an answer to Jack's slide show question. I received a great deal of submissions with software recommendations, so what I did was broken them down into lists so it will be easier for all of you to see what our members submitted. I practically almost included all user submission this week, even those who suggested for Jack to ask his friend. happy So enjoy!

If you have more questions to ask or have any additional suggestions to add to this week's topic, please by all means participate and add to this discussion thread.

Thanks again everyone!

A friend of mine recently sent me a really cool photo slide show that he'd created and copied onto a CD, and it even worked on my home DVD player. It plays just like any other DVD does, and the slide show is full of background music and impressive effects. I took a bunch of family photos over the holiday, and I was wondering, how he did he do that, and could I do it, too?

This seems to be the next wave of photo albums. I have been burning photo DVDs at a furious rate for gifts, and they've always been gladly received. It is simply a matter of choosing the right program. I like to have more intimate control over my slide shows, but most programs have settings that will automatically create random transitions and movements, allow you to add music from your own selections, and even synchronize the length of the music to the number of photo transitions. Once you have the hang of it, you can get creative and tell the story of an event or a person's life and even make viewers feel they are really there. It is definitely a great way to share your favorite photos. To avoid the disappointment of your precious memories becoming unusable because of ever-changing technology, make sure you always keep a printed copy.
