Tips for using iDVD

  • When you send a saved slideshow to iDVD, iPhoto actually sends it as a QuickTime movie, which you can't edit in any way inside iDVD. Remember to choose the 4:3 format for your slideshow!

  • If an album has more than 99 photos, iDVD splits it into multiple slideshows.

  • Save your iDVD project with a good name; it's the disc name in the Finder.

  • Turn on Show TV Safe Area in the Advanced menu to verify that everything you're doing will fit on the TV screen.

  • iDVD automatically picks up the music (individual songs or entire playlists) attached to the album in iPhoto, but iDVD also lets you choose multiple songs without selecting an entire playlist.

  • If you select Add Original Photos on DVD-ROM in the slideshow window, iDVD also makes the photos available as files on the DVD for use with computers. These are stored as normal files and not in an iPhoto Library folder.

  • Quit all unnecessary applications when burning; if anything interrupts the burn process, it can ruin your DVD-R disc.

  • DVD-R discs hold 4.7 GB, so you probably won't be able to fill one with slideshows. To use all the space, add video.
