Why background music is not with an exported slideshow video

Sometimes, after creating a slideshow with music using Photo Slideshow Director HD,  you may want to save it to iPad photo library, or wireless transfer it to PC. However, the background music is lost in the exported slideshow. So how can you fix the problem and create a slideshow with music?

It may be OK when previewing the slideshow. While you watch the slideshow saved in iPad Photo Library, the music is not there.

In this case, please check if you have used protected music (m4p ) purchased from iTunes Store, if yes,  you can try to add music files in m4a or mp3 format.  Because m4p file can not be exported due to DRM.

Also you can try to double-press the iPad home button to show all running apps, then close Photo Slideshow Director HD and restart it to export the slideshow again. Before closing the app, please remember to save the project.

As a shutterbug, I almost record every special moment with photos. No matter it is a weekend in a park, birthday party, family reunion party, I will take photos to record it. Then I am pleased to share my photography portfolio with friends and family. Since I got a new iPad three month ago, I fell love it it. I can use it to watch movies, play games, especially taking pictures. As we all know, there are so many apps in iTunes App store for iPad, so it is so convenient to have an iPad.

One of friends married last week and she asked me to create a wedding slideshow to present her wedding photos to guests on wedding ceremony. I used Photo Slideshow Director HD to create the wedding slideshow with several wedding songs, and played the slideshow on a large projector with 100 inches wide. After the ceremony, my friend called me and told me that the guests really like the slideshow. People clapped their hands for many times and were impressed by their happiness and love.
