Hi Everyone,

Can anyone recommend a product where I can produce a slideshow of images with music etc. I have tried using Apple's programs, even Finalcut Pro x but the images are not very sharp when played on my TV.
I understand thats because of the compression made when transferring to a DVD.

If anybody has any ideas of what I may be doing wrong or pass on any knowledge, I would appreciate your feedback.

As the above have used Roxio creator 2010 pro & the 2011 version, Quite good once you get the hang of it.

Also used Proshow gold, This is a more dedicated slideshow program, Endless options super image quality when rendered properly too....!!!

That said I'm fairly sure the " Roxio " suit of software comes in Mac OS versions, But I don't think the " ProShow " programs are written for Mac/OS.

Its been while since I looked, So you might want to check that out....!!!

One more vote for ProShow Gold! Fairly intuitive and, as Cameracat says, the list of options are endless.

I assume you are running Mac OS X. I use a program called Photo to Movie. I feel it is the best I have used for the money. It comes in Mac or PC flavors.

Here is a link to my review of a recent version of the photo slideshow program. A newer version is now available:

Photo to Movie might be the best slideshow software for your needs.
