Hi All,

Im after some slideshow software for my MAC to present Wedding photos to customers during Wedding consultations.

What would you recommend that is:

MAC Based
Slideshow of my photos
Add music to the photos (what music do people like for wedding slideshows)
Export to DVD so i can play it on a DVD and not have the computer hooked up to the Plasma all the time?


Cheers, Jason Cole

iPhoto does all this (sends the slideshow to iDVD to create the DVD).

And you'll already have it.

Make sure you get the 08 version of iDVD - it has a pro output option that really does make a difference on TV playback.....

Previous versions were poor - but iDVD08 is as good as most others out there

iPhoto is great for the computer shows as it takes the full res image ....

I have been using imovie to make my slideshows (you can do transitions, titles, panning that the idvd won't allow you to do.) The I click & drag them into the iDVD templates (I love the wedding ones). I then use garage band to blend the music if I want to put more than one song into a particular slideshow...PM me if you need some assistance on doing it...
