I want to create a DVD picture slideshow to give as a gift. What is a good computer program to do this with?

Paper_Fifty asked:

I am planning on creating a digital scrapbook as a gift to my boyfriend for our anniversary. Basically, I create for him a DVD that he is able to watch on TV, like a “mini-movie” using pictures of us and with music that we listen to playing in the background. However, I am NOT computer-saavy at all and am hoping to get some tips on how to get pointed in the right direction. What computer program should I use to complete this project, and how would I do it?

    You probably have Windows Movie Maker already on your PC. I have not used it personally but have seen many projects like you mention from other people who have used it and they all say it is very user friendly. Give it a try.

    Windows Movie Maker is one.
    If That doesnt work try Powerpoint. I think it has a mode for that.

    If you have microsoft powerpoint, you can use that to make your slideshow w/o having to spend money. However, if you are looking for better slideshow program, photodex pro show gold is the best program that’s out now.
    I’ve used it several times and it’s easy to use with the help of the manual. They have lots of special effects so you can be creative with your slideshow. Plus the program allows you to add in video into the slideshow too. And with that added feature you can enhance your slideshow even more with video loops. I’ve done that a few times and it definitely makes the slideshow look really cool! I like going to for all my video loops so does my friend who did numerous of slideshows for fun and for family and friends’ weddings. They also have a good selection of dvd disc and cover art that turns boring, plain white dvds into a great looking gift.

    Good luck with your project.

    If you have access to a Mac I would highly recommend iMovie.
