Well, after we've created some terrific slideshows, such as our Kauai Vacation, and I am trusting that you are going to create some great stuff too. And if you want to share it in a different way by putting it on a DVD, that's not too bad because iDVD is part of iLife, which includes iPhoto and iMovie, and they are all connected together and it works pretty well. The great thing about burning a DVD is that you can share it with Aunt Jane and she doesn't even need a computer.
She can just play it in her DVD player that's connected to her TV and it's very easy which just makes it even better. So let's do that right now. So you just select your project, your little project that you've created here, and then you go up to Share and you see iDVD right there. We are going to share this and I love this here where Send single image. No, we don't want to burn a DVD with just one picture on it. We want to send the whole slideshow. You will get this every time, just go to whole slideshow. (Music playing) All right! So, I just let you hear a little bit of that fabulous theme music.
You have a number of themes here that you can pick. iPhoto will pick one that fits the photos or the slideshow that you are sending over, but you have different ones you can play with. Some are at different resolutions and you might get a warning around that, but you can play with all these themes and there is a whole bunch of them. We are going to stick with this one for a moment, and you really don't have to do very much at this point. You have some text here and you can just leave it. It'll pick up the text from your project and you can see that down here.
So we will leave that at the moment. You probably want to change this text right here and we are just going to call it Derrick's Travels. Just click outside of the box, all right, and look at this. I am in lights here. Now the last thing is you notice we have a little drop zone here, and what iDVD wants is a photo from our travels and you can do that.
You just go over here to Media and your iPhoto Library will show up and you go, ok what photo do I want from the Kauai vacation? And so we'll go through here. First, we have to find our vacation. Here we go. So how about, well, how about something? It just feels like, doesn't this feel like it? So, let's just drag this over here. All right! Look at that. Wow! Isn't that pretty? Now you can test this out by just clicking on the Play button, right here.
So I'm going to turn up the volume, and we'll play it for a second just so we can see what we have. (Music Playing) And that's what Aunt Jane will see on her set top TV when she plays your DVD, because from this point on all you have to do is click the Burn button and insert a recordable DVD and you're off to the races.
I am not going to do that right now. We will just cancel. Now if you want to do more with this, you can and we actually have a good title in our library right now, iDVD '09 Essential Training, and if you wanted to add more content to this DVD before you burn it or you wanted to learn all the ins and outs of this application, I encourage you to take a look at that and you can get better at it. But if you just want to do something quickly, what we've done here will produce a very nice DVD from the work that you created in iPhoto.
