Chapter 4. iDVD > Photos media

Photos media

Choose “Photos” from the Media pop-up menu to access all the photos in your iPhoto collection. Select any photo to use as a menu background or a button image. You can even drag an iPhoto album to the menu background to create a background slideshow.

Use the Search field to find media files in a selected album, playlist, or movie folder. The lower pane changes to show only files whose name matches the letters or words you've typed in the text field.

  • To use a still image for a menu background, drag the image from the Media pane onto the menu background. When you see a blue border highlight the edges of the menu window, let go of the image.

  • To replace the image on a picture button, drag an image from the Media pane and drop it on top of a button in the menu.

  • To replace an existing image or a movie in a drop zone, drag a photo from the Media pane on top of a drop zone. When you see a striped-border highlight appear around the drop zone, let go.

  • To add one or more photos to a slideshow, open the Slideshow editor (see details on pages 204207). Then drag a photo (or photos) from the Media pane to the Slideshow editor.

  • To add an entire slideshow, first create an album in iPhoto that includes the photos you want to use. Then drag that iPhoto album from the Media pane to the menu. You can also drag a folder of photos from any Finder window to the menu.

You can drag still photos on top of existing motion buttons. You can also drag a still photo onto the menu background to create a photo background.

If you drag the Media pane's dimpled separator bar up, the contents of the upper pane—iPhoto images—are moved to a pop-up menu (shown above). To show the pop-up menu's contents in a pane again, drag the bar down.
