    Default DVD Photo Slideshow

    Hello group,

    Follows what I am looking for. Any recommendations?
    1 - Software to create DVD slideshow of digital pictures
    2 - Has to also serve as my photo archive medium i.e: no image quality lost
    3 - DVD playback on TV must allow menu navigation, group by theme selection
    4 - Should be either freeware, shareware or afordable at least ($100 or less)

    Thanks all
    JM

    Unless I'm misunderstanding your requirements wrongly, I believe iDVD (part of iLife05, which is a Mac suite of apps) can do what you're looking for. I've done one such DVD before.

    Cheers....Nizz

    ...btw apologies if you're not using a Mac, as I didn't see a system specification.

    Cheers....Nizz

    Only thing is with iDVD, you need a SuperDrive.

    iLife costs $165 at shops.

    BB: Ya, I read his budget, that's why I listed out iLife's price. For what iLife can do, the $165 is more than well spent.

    And yes, provided he has a Mac first

    Try their demo version first to see for yourself. The current version 2.2 support 16:9 format as well as the standard 4:3 format.

    Yes, I know about that easter egg thingie, but you'll need either an additional external HDD and/or PC with DVD writer.

    $158 incl gst actually. if shops charge you $165 then don't buy from them.

    IIRC it was $165 at Apple@Funan, but then... I might have made a mistake I didn't have to buy tho', iLife came with my PB.

    Default DVD Photo Slideshow

    Wow I never expected so much feedback ... thanks everyone.

    In summary I have 2 options:
    1 - iDVD from Ulead
    2 - MemoriesOnTV from CodeJam

    Blurbock said "Not possible .....". Did you say that because of the $100 budget limit or for other reasons? I am willing to raise my budget after all

    Also, I don't know what a SuperDrive is (needed by iDVD) ... I assume it means a LOT of disk space?

    Does anyone know how both products compare ?

    Great forum group by the way!
