Appleologist :

Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am excited to get started with you.

The easiest way to burn your iphoto slideshow to a Dvd, is to first export the slide show, save it and then burn it.
In iphoto, select your slideshow. At the bottom your will see the export button

Customer:

where do I export it to?

Appleologist :

You can save it to your desktop so it is easier to find when you are ready to export it to your CD

Customer:

ok can I look at my iphoto now for a minute to see if I see the export button?

Appleologist :

Sure. Open iphoto, select your slideshow. You will then notice the export button at the bottom

Customer:

see, my slideshow is under the heading of "albums" for some reason.

Appleologist :

Is there a slide show heading?

Customer:

not that I can see.

Appleologist :

Click on file, and choose create new slide show. Does it appear now?

Customer:

all the pictures are on the right in order and under them is an arrow with the word "slideshow" next to it to start it

Customer:

no, references are only to "albums"

Appleologist :

Ok no problem. Select your slideshow in the left column. Then choose share from the top menu bar

Appleologist :

You should see the option to Burn or send to iDvd

Appleologist :

depending on your version of iphoto

Customer:

there is both "burn" and send to idvd.

Customer:

here is the problem, I have both idvd 3.0.1 and idvd 7.0.1

Appleologist :

Ok so you have an option. You can just burn it to a dvd or you can send it to idvd if you would like to make it more official with more theme options.

Customer:

well, one question is, I already have it set to music so will i lose the music if I just do burn?

Appleologist :

You can use idvd 7.0.1

Appleologist :

No, it will burn just the way it is in iPhoto. The only difference between burning in idvd is the option to add menu selection options

Customer:

ok i will just do burn. do I need to get a cd to do this now or does the pressing burn just ready it?

Appleologist :

Yes, you will need to get a blank Dvd. Once you insert it into your computer, choose burn and set your resolution

Appleologist :

Do you have a blank DVD handy right now?

Customer:

sorry, went to br.

Customer:

yes i will go get one.

Appleologist :

Are you ready to burn now?

Customer:

no, dammit, we dont seem to have any cd's.

Customer:

I will have to try later. any other tips for burning?

Appleologist :

You will need a DVD, not a Cd.

Customer:

ok good thing you brought that up. where do I get one?

Appleologist :

Nope! Thats it. It is very straight forward. You can get them anywhere like radio shack, best buy. Pretty much any electronic store

Appleologist :

I would also recommend burning using both iphoto and idvd to see which one you like best

Customer:

ok you are an angel from heaven. thank you so much!!

Appleologist :

Awww thank you. You are very welcome. Best of luck :)

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
