    I put a slide show together for my mom (shhh... surprise birthday party.pixiedust:). The pictures are all from the last 15 years or so with a few exceptions. Everything laid out, and the pictures will just play during the party (no music needed there). However, I want to give her a DVD of the slide show and want to include music (in case she watches it at home later).

    The slide show is 5:30, so I probably need two songs.

    Please help. I'm a techie, not a creative guy.

    Thanks!

    I did this once for my dad, but mine was like 30 minutes long. I used a bunch of Elvis, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Johnny Cash. Cause that's wheat he liked.

    P.S. if you pick two songs and then your songs run to long, adjust the timing of your photos, you should be able to match them up perfectly. :thumbsup2

    I would have loved to make it longer. I'm limited in how many pictures I have. My mom's the "keeper" of the pictures (at least the old ones apparently), so what I have is a few of her taken with my kids.

    Thanks to both of you!

    I've done a lot of slideshows for friends. The two songs I use most are I Hope You Dance and Unwritten.
