I started using Lightroom, and I like it to organize and sort my pictures, but I'm a bit disapointed with slideshow. First, I don't think I can burn a slideshow on a Dvd with Lightroom, Am I right? Lightroom slideshow look very professional but I would like more possibilities for transitions and effects, and would like to save my entire slideshow (with music, effect and everything), not just the preset.... So, I'm looking for another software to use just for slideshow, keeping my pictures organised in Lightroom. Need advices.

The program I use for slideshow creation is called Photodex Proshow Producer. Google it, its a good piece of software, and well worth having. I think they have a cheaper version too.

I was actually impressed with Photostory available for free from Microsoft. (You do have to go through WGA validation.)

I burned a VCD made with that a couple years ago. I was impressed with how you could do "ken burns" effect of zooming and panning on a single image before going to the next, along with multiple transitions and adding custom music, or letting the program generate its own music.

In either case, there are 3rd party tools that can be used to convert the output .wmv files from photostory 3 to put them onto DVD.

Following is a link to version 3.0 for Windows XP ( I believe Vista ships with version 3.1... not sure of the differences, but I THOUGHT I heard there were more transitions and possibly DVD burning built-in for Vista):

I would add another vote for Photodex's Proshow. I use the gold version rather than the producer. They have just added layers to the most recent version available. It is a great program and very intuitive to use.

hi there if you want a fantastic looking slideshow you have to use INALBUM
i have used photodex and others but INALBUM wins hands down.

I was wondering if Pro Show Gold is compatible with Mac. If not, is there something as good as this program for Mac.

I'm not a mac user myself (so I can't try it) but I've heard good reviews of this:
