Hello,
the automatic slideshow in iphoto is really something big.
is there a way to export iphoto slideshow directly to imovie ?
i mean, export the entire slideshow not only the pictures.

Thank

Not sure about iMovie, but you can directly export it to iDVD. Click on Share in the menubar and choose to send to iDVD. I have done a lot of this and given DVD's to friends and family, and they seem to love them. You can also select to add the photo files themselves to the disk so that the recipient can download the photos to their own machine.

Good luck!

one of the thing that i really love in the new version, is the slideshow.
when you play slideshow, it let you chose theme, and it automatically add music and effects.

i want to export the entire slideshow , with the music and the effects.
is there a way to do it ?

I finally found what I was looking for.
Here is the right way to do it.

Goto to File → Export
choose Slideshow tag and then Export.
Iphoto add the last theme that you used when you play slideshow, if you want another theme, just play it again with another theme.

I've tried the export steps you suggest and the burned dvd can't be viewed on a tv/dvd. Any suggestions on how to format so I can do that?

You left out what you did with the resulting exported movie file. If you just dragged it onto a blank DVD then that would a data DVD and will not work.

The exported movie file (with the output settings changed to "large" or "medium" for televisions of course) should then be dragged into the freeware Burn or the payware Toast (or some alternative) to make a "movie" DVD.

Chas, The Toast reviews I read were not very good. Is Burn compatible with lion 10.7.2?

I'm using it on 10.7.2 so I'm gonna say "yes." :)
