I need your help, I want to make a CD of my Granddaughter and myself using a bunch of pictures of her and I and put some music to it, but I have absolutely no idea of how to do it. So if somebody has the time and inclination to help me with this I would really appreciate it. I am a computer moron so the more simple the directions the better. Thanks for your help with this one, I really want to make this for her for when she is older and can see us together when she was just an itty-bitty bundle of joy.

I have Nero burning and adobe active share, A friend of mine installed them on my computer but I have never used them. I also have windows picture and Jasc paint shop pro 9. If there is an easy one to use that is available for download off of the net I would use that if somebody knows of one or can recommend one. My operating system is XP-Pro

Go to kodak.com or easyshare.com and download their software. It's good stuff and simple to use. Burning the pictures to a cd isn't a problem. Windows will do that for you but you're going to need a program that will create a slide show. PowerPoint will do that. Do you have Office XP on your computer?

I have ADS Tech (DVD Xpress). It allows you to hook up a video camera, tape phonograph, or VCR to your computer and capture. You can create folders with icons and a picture for a background. It uses DVD's and will play in most DVD units. When you put it in the player it pulls up a menu like the movie DVD's. You can then click on any icon and it will play that folder and then they go through the rest. It is nice to put different occasions in different folders so you can view Christmas or any section at a time. It also allows you to use background audio. It is intended more for video but you capture the video to a folder and then transfer to disk. I just use the picture folders instead of the capture.

Try photojam, it's pretty cool and easy. It will sync music with pictures.

I'd opt for the Powerpoint route myself, as previously stated. That is, if you've got MS Office. It's the easiest, lots of people would have it (and if they don't, you can download a separate viewer for it, include it on the CD, and it'll make it play no matter what)...can't really go wrong with that.

I'm pretty sure you'd be able to include some background music in the presentation too.

I thought so...but the last time I used Powerpoint to make that kind of a slideshow presentation, I didn't have any background music. Just the pictures and a caption for them. Did that a few years ago for a family reunion; put a bunch of the pictures I took into the presentation and just made it look purdy.
