I can take as much as 100 pictures i have downloaded from my camera, along with 25 minutes of videos, i also have taken with my camera. Combined them into a program, along with duration of the pic, and length of transission from pic to pic. I can put backgrounds and text into a title to begin program with. After all has been created, it can, from the program, be burned to a DVD, that can just be incerted into any DVD player that supports these formates. The programs i use most are, Sonic, Pennical, Photo story, windows movie maker, and photo stage. As far as my satisfaction, these will do all that i want, and not much complication. Mostly just dragging to add to program. These programs also allow me to take any music i put on my computer to be installed to run in the background, while the slides are being displayed. I wish someone could show me something withen Linuxmint that would allow me to do that. I am trying.
