4Media Photo DVD Maker is a program that can be used to create photography compilations on DVDs. The application is highly automatic in nature. In fact, all you really need to do to create a photo slideshow that you can burn on a blank DVD is to load your pictures. The application automatically adds transitions to the slideshow and adds your pictures to it. You can of course change individual settings if you want. For example, you can change how long a single picture stays on the screen, and how long the transition effects will be. You can also set the app to use a single transition effect or random effects. There is also support for background music. To use this feature, all you need to do is to add a music file. It will play on the background until it finishes or you can set it into a continuous loop.
There is a timeline at the bottom of the screen that shows all the pictures that you have added and the order in which they will appear in your slideshow. You can drag and drop them to alter this order. Below the timeline, you will find some image options. From here, you can rotate your images manually, or enable the auto-rotation feature. You can also flip them horizontally or vertically.
Once you are done creating your compilation, you can proceed to the burning phase. If your Mac has a DVD burner, you will be able to burn the slideshow to a blank DVD. Otherwise, the app lets you save it to an ISO file or DVD folder.
