How can I make a slideshow of photos with music and author to DVD?

Is there any guides about or software to do this?

I got 1000s of digital photos and wanna start to archive them onto DVD. It would be nice to have some music in the background while viewing the photos.


you might find guides @

I find ProShow Gold works fine for me. No need for a tutorial as its pretty simple to use. Get demo from

Thanks CM…just grabbed the Demo, nice an easy :wink:

Check out Memories To Tv, for the most impressive slide show on DVD. Amazing transitions, and special effects, very easy to use. There are many others. You can download free trials for Sony Screen Blast, and others from Ulead, Arc Soft, Nero (Vision Express, not Photoshow Elite which only does VCD) etc.

A good idea is to save the original photos on the disk, as well as the slide show (which becomes a video).

You can add background music as well.

Pro show Gold mentioned earlier does some nice animated text. A feature others lack.
