How to Burn iPhoto Slideshow to DVD on Mac (Mountain Lion)

iPhoto is the default application that comes with every new Mac. With it, you're able to manage your photos on Mac, enhance your photos and make a compelling slideshow to share with other. iPhoto provides you with animated themes like Holiday Mobile, Places, and Reflections, which bring your photos to life instantly.

Previously, you can burn iPhoto slideshow to DVD using another default application iDVD. However, from Mac OS X 10.7, there is no iDVD any more. I think Apple would like their customers to use iCloud, YouTube, or Facebook to share their iPhoto slideshow. But this is not the case for some users like you. DVD is still a universal way to share iPhoto slideshow on TV. So what's the solution?

iSkysoft DVD Creator for Mac is the right tool to extricate yourself from from the dilemma. It can either burn exported iPhoto slideshow movie to DVD disc, or directly help your make a photo slideshow and burn to DVD without leaving the program. Below I will show you how to burn iPhoto slideshow to DVD, and play on any home DVD player.

Hi Denise, the sentence means that this DVD tool supports to burn DVD into different DVD disc type, so you can choose the one that fits your player. When you burn your MOV file, you can select the \"4:3\" option in the \"Menu\" tab, and then select \"NTSC\" TV standard in the output settings window. Please take a trial. Any other question, please let us know.
I have a question, you said: \"To play the created iPhoto Slideshow DVD successfully on your home DVD player, make sure you\'ve chosen the same TV standard with the DVD player.\" What does this mean? Also, when I dragged my mov. file which I started out in iPhoto, the resulting dvd playback had the images squeezed in from the sides, distorted. What caused this?
