Slide Show music

I am creating a cd/dvd slide show and with over 100 slides, one song is only long enough to get 1 second per photo. I want to extend the time to 3 seconds which means I need to add 1 or 2 more songs. The progranm does not give me that option. Any suggestions?

1) File > New > Presentation > Create (new presentation with all default settings)
2) Panel at right: Slide Transition > Modify Transition > Sound = "apert" (fourth in the drop down list)
You should hear a short (~2s) sound at this point, as the effect is "previewed". If you don't hear it, try the "Play" button at the bottom of the Slide Transition panel. If that doesn't work, then OOo is not able to play sounds and you have to fix that before proceeding.
3) Slide Transition > Modify Transition > Sound = "Other sound" > (select your long music file).
You may or may not hear the preview for this, it depends on whether your music file has a quiet leader at the beginning. If the audio starts right away, you should hear it. If the audio starts after 1-2s of silence, you won't hear anything.
4) Click "Slide show" (bottom of the Slide Transition panel) or F5.
You should hear the music start. It will continue to play even after you advance to the next slide (which is the black "End of show" screen. Advance again to end the show and the music should stop.

How do you add the music to the slide show?

Dear annettesamto

First do the photos. When you have finished that, click on the "Next" button at the bottom of the window. Now look for your music files by clicking on the "Select Audio Files" button in the "Soundtrack" section. For example, go to "My Documents" and then select the "My Music" folder and click on "Open". Select the music file you want and once again click on "Open". The track you have chosen should now appear in the white area in the "Soundtrack" section. Repeat this to choose more music tracks until you are satisfied with your selection. To delete any tracks from the list, select it in the "Soundtrack" section and then click on the little dustbin to the right and just above the white area where the names of the music tracks are.
Hint: Try to get the combined length of all your music tracks ("Total audio time") close to the "Duration of Slide Show". Then decide how long (in seconds) you want every photo to be displayed before the slide show moves on to the next photo. All your photos will be displayed for the same amount of seconds. In the "Duration" section, at "Set Duration", type in the amount of seconds you would roughly want your photos to be displayed for (for example 8 seconds). If the "Duration of Slide Show" and "Total audio time" is the same or very close, you can ignore the part where it says "Auto-Fit to Soundtrack". However, if the difference is several seconds or more, click on "Auto-Fit to Soundtrack". This will ensure that your slide show (photos) ends when the music ends. It means that your photos may now be displayed for slightly less or more seconds than the amount you indicated, but at least the soundtrack and the photos will end together.
When you are satisfied with your soundtrack, click on "Finish" at the bottom of the window. If the computer asks you if you want to replace an existing file, click on "Yes". The soundtrack window dissapears. Now click on "File" at the top left of the window and choose "Save Project".

You can listen to your soundtrack by clicking on tab 3 ("Produce") and then on the "Enter" button on the remote control.

You should be aware that some music files may not work with SlideShow Expressions, particularly some files that have been downloaded from the internet, for example through iTunes. This has to do with copy-protection and causes some tracks not to play properly. As a rule, though, mp3 files should work fine, as well as tracks ripped from CDs, like wma files. The User Guide gives a list of all the supported music files. The User Guide is on the install disc. To find it, insert your install disc and click on the relevant link that appears, or you can go to "My Computer", right-click on the CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore" to look for it on the install disc; it is a pdf file.

I hope this was helpful. The best of luck to you.

I cannon figure out how to add music from my computer to the slide show....please help me....I have 5 songs on my desktop and I cannot seem to figure out how to get them to slideshow...

Best jbannon257

There could be a number of reasons why you're having trouble adding music files to your slide shows. First I'll lay out the procedure and afterwards I'll give some hints / a link to where problems with audio files are discussed.

The procedure (adding music files using SlideShow Expressions):
The programme opens and you are automatically in tab 1: "Add Media".
Click on "Create New Slide Show". Click on "Add Photos"; tell the programme where the photos are, select them, insert them, change their positions if necessary.
1. Click on "Next" at the bottom of the screen.
2. At "Soundtrack", click "Select Audio Files", then tell the programme where the music files are located on your computer, click to highlight a specific music file, click on "Open". The music file you selected now appears in the Soundtrack window. Repeat this until all the music files you want appear in the Soundtrack window. (You can delete any of them by clicking to highlight any specific file and then click on the little rubbish can icon.) As you go along, the total audio time for the slide show / chapter is displayed as well as the "Duration of Slide Show".
3. In the "Duration" section, you have the option to set the length of time you want per slide (seconds) - usually 8 to 10 seconds is best. (All your slides will follow this instruction; you can't set the duration of individual slides to a different time.) At "Auto-Fit to Soundtrack", you alter the duration of the slides to fit the length of the soundtrack. (This cancels out the previous seconds-per slide setting.) You must therefore choose music tracks that, when added together, will approximately span the whole length of the slide show and then you can fine-tune this by clicking the "Auto-Fit to Soundtrack" option.
4. When you are satisfied with your choice of music tracks and the length of your slide show, click on "Finish".

Issues with music files when using SlideShow Expressions
According to the User Guide (section 3-3) - included on the install disc as a pdf file - the supported audio formats are: mp3, wma, wav, ra. Make sure that your computer also meets all of the requirements (on the box).

Photo & Video Expressions is not compatible with audio files that have been protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) functionality. Most audio files purchased online through Internet music retailers like iTunes, Urge, or Rhapsody are encrypted with some form of DRM. Similarly, audio files that have been extracted from a CD or DVD (the process known as "ripping") using certain media applications (iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc.) often have default settings that encrypt the files extracted.

There is no way to used DRM audio files purchased from online music retailers with Photo & Video Expressions. However, if you want to used music and audio files that you have extracted from your CD collection, then all you have to do is change the ripping setting in your media application before you extract the files to your computer.
Go to the following site to read about how to change your ripping settings:

Type your question OR (below):

"Photo & Video Creativity": choose "SlideShow Expressions" from drop-down menu, click "Go".

A window appears with options on problems, e.g. "Why aren't my audio files showing?"; "Why won't my music files work?" Click to read.

Is there a limit to how many slides can go into a slide show -- it keeps deleting slides after 85 --

Best debidell

That doesn't sound right. I've definitely made slide shows of 100 slides and more and burned them successfully too. I usually create projects divided into chapters of about 50 photos each, though, for example, my largest project so far: about 460 photos - 5 chapters of 50 photos each on disc1; 4 chapters of 50 photos each and 1 chapter of about 10 photos on disc 2. However, I have also burned projects that only had one chapter (i.e. one slide show icon on my menu page), for example one with 105 photos.
What you're reporting sounds strange. Do you mean that the slides get deleted during the burning process (that it is only missing from the burned disc), or do you mean that the slides get deleted while you're still compiling the show? However, I recommend the following:
1. If you don't mind breaking your slide show up into smaller parts (chapters), create a show containing about 50 slides, then another with 50, etc. For each slide show you would click on "Create slide show" and each would have its own chapter icon on your menu page. These slide shows will then run continuously, the one following the other. The benefit is that you (or the person the project is meant for) can then more easily access a specific area or slide in your project if so prefered, but also, breaking up your project into smaller parts seem to assist the burning process.
2. Contact the technical support team for SlideShow Expressions at They've helped me out in the past and will get into touch with you within 48 hours of stating your case. You have to register your product with them before you can get help (computer and programme particulars, etc.), but it doesn't take all that long and it really is worth trying out. Don't hesitate - it is a FREE service. They can respond via email or even phone.

I've picked up a few pointers along the way when it comes to SlideShow Expressions:
a) Large photos (1MB and more) can disrupt the burning process - a classic symptom being that the burning process stops during the actual writing of the files (step 5?). I have successfully burned projects containing photos of 1MB and more, but often this is the reason why burning might fail or you end up with a defective end product. Don't be afraid to resize your photos. Yes, it takes up valuable time, but experimenting with photo sizes can save a project. I've been using Microsoft Office Picture Manager to resize my photos to about 400 / 500 KB per photo (or even smaller), but in the end you have to see what works for you. Look, if 1MB or larger works for you, go for it. But there really is no visual difference in the end product: I cannot tell that I'm looking at resized photos and nobody else will either. Of course, I like to add a second disc (CD-ROM) to my projects, containing the original photo sizes so family members can use these for printing, etc.
b) One of the things that make SlideShow Expessions so successful, is the fact that you can make quite lenghty projects. This however, may lead to issues resulting in failure to burn correctly (or even at all) to disc. It helps to divide your project into chapters.
c) The option to also archive your photos and music files on the disc is a great feature, but it has been linked to burning failures, especially when your project is very large / your photos are quite large (a and b).
d) When including video clips in your project, be sure not to use files that are very large. The end product may work well on computer, but it may also cause problems when that same disc is viewed on TV, as some DVD players will not be able to handle large video clips.

I hope all of this can be of help. Do contact should this issue persist. I wish you all the best.

How do I remove a tumbnail from a photo?

Once you've added you're photos, you can set a different photo to act as thumbnail (the programme automatically chooses the first photo/slide, indicated by a little green ticked box sign).
To change the thumbnail to a different photo, highlight the photo you want as thumbnail by clicking it - the frame will change to yellow - and then click on the green ticked box command ("Set Thumbnail") at the top of the window.
You cannot alltogether delete the thumbnail, because every slide show you create needs to have a thumbnail to link the slide show to the menu screen at the start of your DVD. So, on your menu screen there will always be at least one thumbnail. (The black thumbnail that appears in the middle of your screen when you first open the programme, is a "place holder". It needs to be there and it cannot be deleted. Once you've created a slide show, it will be replaced with the photo you have chosen to be the thumbnail. Every time you create a new slide show, a new thumbnail will be added to your menu screen. The position of thumbnails can be changed, using the second ("Edit") Tab.

You will find a User's Guide on the install disc. It can be accessed by inserting the install disc and clicking on the relevant link, or you can right click on your CD/DVD drive (in "My Computer") and then click on "Explore" to look for it on the install disc - it's a pdf file.

On Photoshow Deluxe, why only one music file can play back on video Cd? even I have more than one music files when I create the slide show.

Only one song is included for playback on a Video CD. Nero PhotoShow ... When editing your photos in Nero PhotoShow, you can undo your last edit by clicking "Undo" or restore to ... The music on an audio CD (and maybe some of your individual audio files) is not in the MP3 format
