    Can anyone recommend a good slideshow producing software suitable for a Mac? I've recently moved over from PC to Mac and am looking into slideshow options. idvd really doesn't produce the quality of images I want after being burnt to DVD. I've tried iMovies but apart from a 'quicktime' playing show I can't again get a reasonable quality image on a DVD playing on TV. Any suggestions?

    Adobe Lightroom has a slide show module that allows the slideshow to be exported either as a pdf or as a movie.

    Thanks Eric.Any idea about the quality - I know Tv monitors carry less detail than a Mac screen but idvd results are worse than the normal Tv picture.

    Soundslides - very good for audio visual shows.

    Oh! Dear that might limit your choices...Sad

    One of the best slideshow programs around is " ProShow Gold " but I have no idea if it will run on the Mac OS.

    I guess you could run " virtual " Windows, If it does not, Though thats a lot of grief just to produce a slideshow that works....!!!

    Another option is " Roxio " They produce a programe called Roxio Creator 2010, Its a complete suite of programes dedicated to all things DVD/CD etcetc.

    I know for sure they do a Mac OS version....Smile Whatever, The program also contains a slideshow production section, Its nothing like as comprehensive as ProShow Gold, But it does a reasonable job and the image quality is very good ( well it is on a machine running Windows OS ). Also has a video section for creating a more custom slideshow.

    Or as Eric has suggested Lightroom 3......Smile Again excellent on the Windows OS, Might be the same for the Mac OS.

    Or there is Adobes " Encore " this is fab, But has a slightly steep learning curve, Though I'm not sure if its available as a stand alone anymore, It is usually included in the big Adobe Creative suites.....Smile
