My mom wants me to make a DVD of the wedding
a slide show of all the pictures and I would like to add the CD that I got at the wedding of the wedding songs into the background..

But I've never done any of this before... soo
Anyone know how I'd go about making a slideshow with music playing
in the background?
What progarm would I need?
and How would I make it viewable on our T.V
Would I have to use a DVD R? or could I use a CD R ?


Thanks

Try down loading the free 15 trial of Muvee. This is a video editor but it also does slide shows and you can use mp3 music.

A very good and free slide show maker is windows Photo story 3. Very minimal image editing but very easy and great selection of music that adjust to length of your slide show. There is also a forum devoted to Photo Story 3.

Adobe Elements also has a slide show feature in it.

I have done similar projects using Windows Movie Maker and it works quite well, my computer had it pre-installed, if yours does, I would use that.

I would think twice about a 300 or more presentation.

Three or four presentations would be easier to sit through at different times.

When you sit and watch too many slides one can come down with that terrible Asian disease when they get up, "Dragon Ass"

LOL

it only takes about 30 mintues to view them all at 3 sec's viewtime.

but now I have another problem.. I can't burn this to a CD-R
the file is saved as a "exe."

I need something that will let me put it on a CD-R
and that doesn't make the pictures smaller because then it looks like crap =\

Of course you can burn an ".exe" file to a CD-R, as long as the file is less than 700 mb in size. It's no different than burning any other type of file.

It won't work for me.

do I need to burn it a certain way?

I need it so I can play it on the xbox 360
since it'll play videos and pictures
