How to Burn Photo Slideshow DVD on Mac
"So I have a MacBook Pro. I'm trying to make a slideshow and put it on a disk. iDVD has been giving me a lot of trouble and it is hard for me to work with. I worked on iDVD for a few hours one night and when I tried to reopen the application it said my themes were lost, something along those lines? What is the most efficient way to make this slideshow?"
Anyway, you should feel happy that iDVD is still available on your Mac. For those who own Macs shipped with OS X 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion, iDVD is no longer provided. It is not available on the Mac App Store with all of the other iLife apps either. It is, however, only available in the boxed copy of iLife '11.
Whether iDVD frustrated you or was dropped from your Mac, you have reason to find a third-party application to replace iDVD and burn a photo slideshow DVD on your Mac. A pretty good app that works is named DVD Photo Slideshow for Mac. It lets you create photo slideshow movie and burn photo slideshow DVD with ease. Just like iPhoto, DVD Photo Slideshow for Mac enables you to make a slideshow of your favorite photos with music, transitions, theme, Pan & Zoom, effects, and more within several minutes. You can output your slideshows as MP4 or MOV files. Better than iPhoto, DVD Photo Slideshow for Mac has the ability to burn your slideshows to DVD discs directly. It is really the best iDVD alternative for Mac users.
