Software to make video slideshow with music

Found 12th Dec 2014
Hi all.

I've been asked to put a highlights reel together of 300 old family photos with some music to play in the background on a DVD for my mum's Xmas present.

What software is good for this sort of thing so it plays on a DVD player? I've tried Nero but it doesn't exactly do what I want as I can't find a way of adding the music to play along with the photos.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.


What version of Nero do you have?


it should be easy with Nero

Nero 12 Platinum but looks like MS's Movie Maker will do the job. Nice and simple software. Thanks very much Moonwolf.


it might be a bit overkill for your purpose but I really like Sony / sonic foundry Vegas. also recommend using a Ken Burns effect so the images aren't just static
