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

  • More than one song for slide show

    I'm putting a slide show together and would like to use two song. Is this possible and if so how? I've tried selecting 2 songs one after the other on the music list, but it just replays the first song. I'm using iphoto '08 Vs 7.1.5 (378).

    With iPhoto 09 you create the playlist right in the music setting window for the slideshow:

  • Using FC Express for slide shows???

    I would like to produce "slide" shows of my photography set to music with voiceovers to show with digital projector and to put on DVD. I really like the capabilities of ProShow Gold and ProShow Producer, but those programs won't run on a MAC. Can I do a slide show using Final Cut Express? Will it distort my photos because of rectangular pixels vs square pixels?
    Thanks for any help.

    iDVD will do this. Basically you create an album in iPhoto, then open iDVD and import the album (Media pane > Photos, then drag the album to the DVD menu). You can change the sequence, add, delete images, change buttons, etc. (I think you can only apply one transition type, though, for the entire slide show.) You can also add an audio track and have iDVD adjust the slideshow timing to automatically fit the length of the audio.
    I suppose you would have to call it DVD quality however I've done this and the results look great, at least for the intended audiences/purposes.
    With regard to varying the effects/transitions between slides, we had to use iMovie or FCE for that. (That is, we had to build the slide show in iMovie or FCE then add the different transitions where we wanted them, then export to iDVD).

  • 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.

  • 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.

    There is a difference between the passcode and the sync key.<br />
    The passcode allows to setup all sync parameters with a single code on other devices.<br />
    To enter the sync key (and user name and password) you need to click on "I don't have the device with me" at the bottom of the "Add a Device" window (Click Connect).

  • Hown can I set up using a downloaded song for my ringertone

    how can I use a downloaded song for my ringtone

    You need to get the original set of discs that came with the Macbook Pro and reinstall the system software.
    Insert the disc and hold down C while booting the machine.  Eventually you will get a menu and you want to reinstall the system software.
    The calendars were deleting because they were still attached to your husband's MobileMe/iCloud account. Reinstalling through the system software discs should not affect your husband's calendars and will allow a fresh shart for your son letting him set up his own account on the Mac.
    If you do not have the set of CDs from that Macbook Pro you can get a new set from Apple for a nominal cost. DO NOT use the CDs that came with the new Macbook Pro. They are not compatible.

  • I am using IDVD to make slide shows.  The pictures are clear and of good quality.  When I burn the slide show to a disk, the pictures are blurry and of poor quality.  Is there a setting for quality of picture in burning a disk?

    I am using IDVD to make slide shows.  The pictures are clear and of high quality when viewed on my computer.  When I burn the slide show to a disk, the pictures are blury and of poor quality.  Is there a setting adjustment to correct this problem?

    I would re-post in the iDVD forum.  You are likely to get a faster answer there.  Good luck.

  • 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,

  • Unable to use  transition options in slide show

    I am unable to get the transition options to function properly on iPhoto 6. I always use the "effects" control box for each individual image, setting speed of transition and the picture's length of time on screen. The only one that works is the default/dissolve. The other transitions seem to work when I choose to set the slide show to music but that sets one transition for the entire slide show. Surprisingly, I sometimes can get those other options to work when I used the control at the bottom of the screen, the one right below my choice of converting the image to black and white or sepia. But it worked for the first few slides before it stopped. When I played the slide show, it defaulted to dissolve. When burn slide shows to iDVD, only dissolve transitions are enabled. How can I get the other transition options to work?

    Have you tried deleting the iPhoto preference file,, found in Users/Library/Preferences? First quit iPhoto, then delete the pref file, then restart and see if the problem resolves itself.

  • 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

  • Only one song in slide show?

    I only seem to be able to select one song in slide show mode, what am I doing wrong?

    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto (iPhoto.Library for iPhoto 5 and earlier) database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 6 and 7 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • College Students Download Songs For Free?

    I just downloaded two songs yesterday on my credit card. For some reason i still have the same amount still on my card. Then i thought back to a news article i read, it said that a college student with a valid college e-mail can download songs for free? Is this still true?
    I used my college e-mail to setup my account,thats also how i got my new macbook. And is that also why i still not getting charged for the songs i downloaded?

    it said that a college student with a valid college e-mail can download songs for free? Is this still true?
    It is not and never has been true for the iTunes Store. There have been some promotions where certain tracks were offered for free (long since expired). There also were other sites, such as Ruckus, where the college paid for their students to have access to music provided by the service, but all such sites I know of have gone out of business.
    It's likely, as Gnome said, that the charge just hasn't hit your credit card yet.
