Make slideshow using photos, videos and music

This is about how to add photos and videos into one project, add music as background music and make them into dazzling slideshow in a few steps. The slideshow can then be exported to mov or mp4 video format, so they can be shared to Facebook and Youtube, or they can also be burned into DVD to be played through DVD players.

Slideshow DVD Creator is a slideshow application, which can help make slideshow simply with the featured transition effects, themes, DVD menu, sync slideshow & music function and other convenient features within minutes. The built-in DVD burner can also help burn the slideshow video into DVDs to play them on TV.
