    I was wondering if anyone has done this on their own - I am calling it a Photo Montage but not sure if that is the correct term....I want to put our pitures on a DVD with music and play it at our welcome dinner. Any good programs or companys you can recommend would be very helpful! THANKS!

    i did this...it was pretty easy...i made a sample one...let me see if i can post here.

    I used photsohop elements i think..

    ok...here it is.

    i made it in like 2 minutes because i already made the pages in lumapix (the same software sarah uses for her photobooks.

    i wanted a video i could send to my friends that did not make the wedding but had so many pics i wanted to include that if i did the pics one at a time it would have been like an hour long...so i thought this was short and sweet.

        Hi Sarah,

        I actually did two. One for our welcome dinner and one for our party at home. It was so much fun! We used Windows Movie Maker. So easy to add pictures, movies, titles.

        Will just made a DVD slideshow for some friends who got married on Movie Maker but I had my students make great slideshows using photostory 3 if you are only using pics.
        Movie maker is much better because you can move the music around.

          I used PhotoStory 3 and I can't get over how easy it was!
          It creates all the transitions for you automatically - let me know if you need any help/questions with it. Good Luck!

          ps - I also just finished up the Framed Centerpieces (the ones with the pictures on vellem paper) I read that you had completed this too - I can't believe how easy/great that DIY was!

            Just and update...photo story 3 ROCKS! Super easy to use! Thanks for the tips ladies!

            Also I was wondering how long you think this photo slideshow should be? It will be played at our welcome dinner. I don't want to have it be too long but once you get me started with pictures it is hard to stop!

            Lastly, for those who have used Photo Story 3 - you can burn your slideshow onto a DVD right? I don't think we are taking the computer to Cabo.

            Thanks again ladies - you are the best!

            yes the file makes a Windows Media Player file and it can be played on any computer that has WMP on it.
            glad that worked out for you..

              WAIT...so I wont be able to burn it to a disc and slip it into the DVD player at the resturant? Sorry I am TOTALLY NOT A COMPUTER PERSON! I am worried about bringing my laptop since I don't know what cables I will need to hook it up to the projector thing at Mi Casa. The idea is to play it on the big screen at the welcome dinner....

                OK so I am leaving in a few short days for Cabo and have been working on my photo montage to play at my welcome dinner for about a million hours. I am realizing that I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BURN THIS ONTO A DVD using Photo Story 3 for Windows. I need it to be on a CD so that I can put it into the player at Mi Casa.

                At this point I need to know if anyone knows of a program that will allow me to use music and pictures together and then burn it onto a DVD. Please help since I am running out of time......
