Not sure if this is the right section or not, but here goes. I am the 'unofficial" photographer for my daughter's lacrosse team and have 500 + images uploaded to my Flickr account from their games. I have been asked to create a slide-show for the end of season banquet next month. What's the best way and highest quality way to do this? I can obviously add the images I want in to a power point and add music, but didn't know if there is a better way.

Any thoughts or tips are greatly appreciated.

You can just take those photos and put it on Windows Movie Maker 2 and create a simple slide show like video with music easily. Tons of smooth transition effects and is probably easier to trying to stitch/load 500+ images :)

I use Proshow Producer. It's $250 for the software, $70 for the gold edition. Gold edition is enough to make nice slideshows. $250 allows more advanced customizing, transitions, etc. It makes it very easy to make nice slideshows. You can use the Slideshow Wizard which makes you choose the photos you want in it, choose the music, then it does it automatically and it's honestly really good already. You can then customize it further after, like adding more photos, hand picking which transitions to use, increase slide durations, etc.

I think it's a good investment. People pay me $50 to make a slideshow. I put it into the wizard with the music they want, and bam, it's done in 30 seconds. Tweak it a little for the next 15 minutes and it's set. All customers are VERY HAPPY with the final product and it took me less than 30 minutes. Definitely earned my $$$ back quickly and now earning profit.
