Figure 10-13. Customizing your slideshow

2. By default, each picture is set to display for seven seconds. Use the "Picture length" list to select the desired display time, such as five seconds. When you make changes to the picture length, note the corresponding change in the running time for the slideshow.

3. Use the Transition list to specify whether and how transitions are used to move from one picture to the next in the slideshow. After you select a transition, click Preview and then play the video to see what the transition will look like.

4. To give your pictures the effect of live motion, select the "Use pan and zoom effects for pictures" checkbox. Some of the transitions work best when panning and zooming is turned off. Others work best when panning and zooming is turned on. As an example, cross-fade works well with pan and zoom turned on, while inset works best with pan and zoom turned off.

5. If you want your slideshow to have a soundtrack, click Add Music. This displays the Add Music to Slide Show dialog box shown in Figure 10-14.

Figure 10-14. Adding your music

6. Because your Music library is the default location for your music, the Add Music to Slide Show dialog box accesses this folder by default. In your Music folder or any other default folder for music, you'll see your music organized by artist. If you double-click the folder for an artist, you'll find either the related album or subfolders for each album when multiple albums by one artist are stored on your computer.

7. Once you've worked your way through the folders and subfolders for artists and albums, you'll see a list of songs. You can select songs to add to the DVD using any of the following techniques:

• Select an individual song by clicking it.

• Select a series of songs by clicking the first song, pressing and holding the Shift key, clicking the last song, and then releasing Shift.

• Select multiple songs individually by clicking the first song, pressing and holding the Ctrl key, clicking each additional song in turn, and then releasing Ctrl.

8. Click Add to close the Add Music to Slide Show dialog box and add your selected songs to the "Music for slide show" list. You can repeat steps 5-7 to add songs by other artists or from other albums. Each time you add songs, note the music length and the slideshow running time. When the music length is within a few minutes of the slideshow running time, you can select the "Change slide show length to match music length" checkbox to sync the soundtrack and the slideshow running times.

9. When you are finished customizing the slideshow, click Change Slide Show to save your changes and return to the "Ready to burn" page.
