I want manual duration for slide show - Remove music?

I have a slide show of six drop zones from iPhoto albums. I would like to have manual duration, but that choice is grayed out and not selectable. iDVD added the default music uninvited. I was able to set the volumes to minimum on both the title and slide shows but I think I need to get rid of the music completely to get the manual duration. But I can't seem to make that happen. Please help.

From the Help Menu in iDVD6:
Setting slideshows to advance manually
Slideshows in iDVD advance to the next slide automatically, with each picture remaining on the screen for 3 seconds. If your slideshow doesn't have a soundtrack, you can set it to advance manually. Viewers can then click the Next or Forward button on the DVD remote control to advance to the next slide at their own pace.
To set a slideshow to advance manually:
1. Double-click the button for your slideshow in the DVD menu to open the slideshow editor.
2. Choose Manual from the Slide Duration pop-up menu.
3. Click Settings and select "Display navigation arrows" if you want to display right and left arrows on the screen as a visual reminder to the viewer to click the Next button on the remote control to advance to the next slide.
4. When you are finished, click the Return button to exit the slideshow editor.

Works exactly the same way with photos shared from your iPhoto library (with the exception it reads "Library" as opposed to "Slideshow" when added to iDVD's entry Menu page).
Hope this helps but if not come on back.

  • Using downloaded songs for slide show background music

    Maybe I am naive, but I just joined iTunes and downloaded some music to use as background for slide shows of family pics. I am using Microsoft Plus! to put the slide shows together. The iTunes songs downloaded in MPEG-4 and the Plus! code will only recognize MP3. I am also concerned that the copyright protection will make the songs not useable for the slide show compilations. Any ideas? Thanks!

    In iTUnes you can burn the song to CD then reimport it as a MP3. Goto edit>preferences>advanced tab>Import sub tab, and set it from "AAC" to "MP3" then hit OK
    Now burn the songs to CD in itunes. Put the CD back in and hit the "Import" button in the top right corner of itunes

  • I pad can you take only pictures you want for slide show

    On ipad can you only use pictures you want for slide show?What is delete on top of photo page?Did not delete picture I marked.Thank you

    And as is often the case with Apple, there's more than one way to do it. Another way to accomplish this is to download a copy of MPEG Streamclip as relayed by longtime iMovie Discussion Group participantAppleMan1958
    First, get an app called MPEG Streamclip, which is free. (google MPEG Streamclip from Squared 5)
    Open MPEG Streamclip.
    In iMovie, select the clip you need. Then, right-click/Reveal in Finder.
    Drag this clip into MPEG Streamclip
    In MPEG Streamclip, move the playhead to the frame you want.
    In MPEG Streamclip, click FILE/EXPORT FRAME.
    Choose JPEG, TIFF, or PNG and give it a name.

  • Hi, I made a slide show with music from 81 photos I downloaded from my camera.  I would like to burn these to a blank DVD, but there appears to be no utility for export to a DVD for slide shows.  Help.  I want to distribute DVD copies to classmates

    Hi, I made a slide show with music from 81 photos I downloaded to iphoto from my camera.  I would like to burn the slide show to DVD, but can't make this happen.  How do I go about doing this? 

    If the DVD is to play on a DVD Player, then Share -> Send to iDVD as iDVD is the only app that creates the correct file structure and format for this purpose.
    If the DVD is just to hold the file, then Export to the desktop and burn with the Finder.

  • Import subtitles for slide show

    I have two slide shows, each with 50 slides. I would like to generate a text file with the subtitle definitions and import it, but apparently subtitles can only be imported for timelines. Why is that?
    I have the names of the slides (the texts that should be displayed as subtitles) in an excel file and generated a text file out of it that has exactly the format needed for importing subtitles.
    It would be rather time consuming to manually copy the names of the 100 slides out of the Excel sheet and insert them as a description for each slide.
    Are there any technical reasons why importing subtitles for slide shows is not allowed?
    Christian Kirchhoff

    thanks again for the reply. In one case I really could do it, you are right there.
    But there are slide shows, too, which do not proceed automatically but wait for the user to press the previous/next chapter buttons on the remote control. To realize the same behaviour in a timeline one had to set the end action for a chapter to "return to beginning of chapter". That works, kind of, but I found out that both with software DVD players on a computer and with regular DVD players the navigation (forward/backward) is very...irregular. Sometimes when you press the next chapter button it works, and sometimes not.
    That's why I wanted to stick with the slide show instead of a timeline.

  • Pdf for slide shows

    When I create a slideshow in Photoshop Elements .pdf is my preferred file format  to save the show.
    One of the nice features of .pdf for slide shows is the 'fade out /fade in' transition between slides, which has been functioning on my laptop, even if slide changing was set to manual.
    I recently downloaded Acrobat Reader for iPAD. Although slide changing was no problem the 'fade out /fade in' effect was gone. Is there any way I could get it back?

    No transitions and multimedia on Adobe Reader for iOS.

  • Video adapter only works for slide shows.

    We received the Apple video adapter today. It appears that it only works for slide shows? It might also work for Keynote, but we don't use that much and haven't installed on the iPad. For our purposes, we'd like to be able to display from other programs- Numbers, Pages, and a PDF reader. This seems counterintuitive to business use if the adaptor isn't fully functional. We are hoping that a software upgrade will make the adaptor functional.

    The iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter can play content to a VGA display when using the following apps:
    Photos—Slideshow playback only
    Safari—Video content on webpages
    Whether Apple will add additional support in the future is unknown, but you can indicate your interest to Apple via their feedback page:

  • Ken Burns for slide shows?

  • Slide Shows to Music

    Can anyone help me.....
    I'm trying to buy some software that you can build a photo slideshow on (that's the easy bit), but the one main feature I want is the ability to tick a box and the photos change in time with the beat of the music.
    Now before one of you clever people suggest that most softwear does this..... they don't.  What most of them do is change the duration of your slideshow to match the length of your selected music, so they all end together.  I want that, but also want the photos to move and change to the 'beat' of the track.  I know that I could do this manually on a timeline, but this is very time consuming and hence the ticky box option, I want the softwear to do it for me.
    Any positive suggestion greatly appreciated.
    Thanks for reading,

    Thanks for asking, but as I use PS to edit my wedding photos I thought that may be someone out of the, 'however' many people there is using the Adobe forum site could assist me.  May be someone would have suggested that there is some Adobe software that could do this?  I thought this was the reason for having forums, may be I was wrong?

  • I have created a slide show with music but when i view it or attempt to burn to a CD or even copy to hard drive after about 15 sec the program stops working and it shuts down

    Elements 10 was deactivated on desktop and installed on new laptop.  Have on
    y used it for photo editing until yesterday. Created a slide show with music but every time I try to burn to cd or move it to hard drive after about 15 sec, it says windows has encountered a problem with this program and must shut down.
    I Also can't sign in to adobe with the program. It simply spins and I had to force close the program.

    I am using photoshop Elements 10 under the create tab...slide show.
    Used it on my desktop several times. Deactivated it and installed on new lap top about 5 months ago.  Had not used it other than for photo editing until today.
    I can also not login in thru the program. It simply spins and I finally had to force close the program

  • Why does my slide show with music crash back to the album on Retina display?

    I really enjoy making slide shows that have music on iphotonand have done it for years.  Suddenly after working with slide shows and music on my new Mac Book Pro 15" with retina display the slide show crashes back to the album display after the first slide.  The title comes up, the music starts the first slide comes up and then it just stops and goes back to the album display.  Everything was working fine until Sunday when I installed the new Iphoto.

    Ok, people. No one helped me on this one, I figured it out by myself.   There is a new section in Iphoto called "slideshows" and if you move the album from which you want to make a slideshow there the  slideshow and music work perfectly together with the benefit that now you and store different music with each slide show that I hadn't been able to do before.
    Mystery solved.

  • I'm trying to share to Media Browser a 20 minute still slide show with music and text. I have tried several times to save at 1080 HD, but just before it's finished, a message box pops up saying "File already open with write permission."  What's this mean?

    I'm trying to finalize/share to Media Browser a 20 minute still slide show with music and text. I'd like to finalize it 1080 hd and have tried several times, but just before it's finished, a message box pops up saying it can't be done because "File already open with with write permission."  What does this mean?  All files are closed; this iMovie project is the only thing open.  Does it mean one of the song files from iTunes? And should I just settle for saving it as a "large" file, which is what I'm trying right now?

  • What cable do I need to run a slide show with music on a projector at a meeting? I have a Mac Book Pro.

    What cable do I need to run a slide show with music on a projector at a meeting? I have a Mac Book Pro.

    Hi jackwyatt,
    Thanks for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    If you would like to connect your MacBook Pro to a projector to output the display and sound, the cables and adapters you need will vary depending on the specific model MacBook Pro that you have.
    I recommend this page for getting a good idea of which adapters you might need:
    About Apple video adapters and cables
    Additionally, the tips in this article can also apply to using a projector as a display:

    All the best,

  • Newbe requests help with audio for slide-show on Premiere Elements 4.

    I recently wrote you regarding a problem I was having with a slide show I was making on Premiere Elements 4 importing photo clips and music from PhotoShop Elements 9.  Thank you for your help.
    This very large slide show, some 200 clips that I have not resized is completed.  I am now having many problems with the music audio I am adding to various sequences of the slide show.  Specifically:the audio will not stay fixed on the places where I put it and end it.  Working on the Timeline Usually the length of the audio is shorter than the ending of the photo clips where it must go.  I click on the audio and stretch it and end it at the place I designate.  However, the other end has moved also so now I am left with a gap where there is no audio at the beginning of the segment.  Now in addition, the "Delete and Close Gap" does not work most of the time causing me to manually move the photo tiles which sometimes move when this happens.  I have to move each one or two individually to the left to close the gap and many times this causes loss of one or two photo tiles or they are out of order or have increase in number (of the one I am moving).
    The program has also shut down for the past 10 days causing me to lose a good deal of work and sometimes photo clips and sometimes I get many duplicates of the photo clips.  All I do is edit mostly the same two segments doing this over and over because I can't proceed to importing any more music because I can't get the first segments correct.  I have chatted with you people, Sony techs, Microsoft Techs and Canon Techs.  The Sony techs suggested the program was at fault and I used the original installation disk and repaired the program.  It has still shut down on me but not as much.
    I got error messages on the photo-cap instructions page you suggessted otherwise I would show pictures of the above problems.
    I tried to copy and/or cut and paste from the Timeline thinking I would start a new slide show in PhotoShop Elements 9 using the same photos in reverse.  The program would not let me copy or paste.  There is great difficulty in highlighting the photo tiles in Timeline because I have to shift click on each individual tile and there are too many tiles and it would take too long to get a whole segment copied.  Maybe you know another way to do this?
    I am at a stand-still now and I am quite despondent because I have been working on this slide-show for 3 months and it was a surprise for my daughter's 25th anniversary that was last Tuesday.
    I do hope you have some good suggestions that will lelt me complete this Project and get it on a disk.  I am not that technical so please be specific.
    Thanks in advance.

    Here's the basic advice I'd give, based on my experience. Much depends, though, on your goals and the specifics of your computer system:
    1) Resize all of your photos to no larger than 1000x750 pixels in size. This is VITAL if you want the program to maintain stability as you work. Also render often (by pressing the Enter key). When the render, the red lines above the clips on your timeline will turn green and the program will run much more efficiently.
    2) Work on your large slideshow project in shorter segments. You've got over 15 minutes worth of slides. Try working on this slideshow in 5 minute segments, output each segment and then combined the finished videos.
    3) Use only WAV audio as your music and audio for your slideshow.
    4) When you add video, audio or stills to a parallel track on your timeline, hold down the Ctrl key to override the ripple function and your current clips will remain in place.
    5) Maintain your computer by using a tool like the excellent, free, one-click Advanced System Care available at http://www.iobit.com/advancedsystemcareper.html
    As for Delete and Close Gap, how it performs depends on whether you've selected Clear or Delete, whether you've pressed the Backspace key or the Delete key and if there is video or audio on a parallel track. (This is all covered in my books, by the way, if you're interested.)
    Without knowing the specifics of your project and your situation, it's hard to give out more specific information -- but this advice should get you a long way toward completing your project!
