Thanks for the tip. I went to file>export and get the options of burn to disk, file export, q.t, or slideshow and am not clear as to which option will allow me to put the slideshow on a flash and share it with the person who will add it to his dvd. It would be great if I could save it with the music and slide duration in my slideshow. Any guidance wojuld be appreciated

Update: I tried "file export" option and it placed all of the photo's (116) on my desktop...Ugh! The "slideshow" option gives the option of exporting to a computer which doesn't appear to be appropriate.

Note the button on the Centre Right of the Slideshow Toolbar - Marked Export...

Thanks. I did try the "slideshow" option and set it to the display option, choose "export" which saved the slideshow along with the music and display time. I then opened a new project in iDVD and imported the slideshow and it works perfectly. Thanks for walking me through the process!

Actually you should have selected the 640 x 480 size or 720 x 540 size as iDVD will reduce what ever you choose to the 640 x 480 size as that's the default DVD size.
Also try using the Share ➙ DVD menu option which does all of the work for you and import the resulting QT movie file of the slideshow into the iDVD menu.
Once you have the iDVD project as you want it save it as a disk image via the File ➙ Save as Disk Image menu option. This will separate the encoding process from the burn process.
To check the encoding mount the disk image and launch DVD Player and play it. If it plays OK with DVD Player the encoding was good.
Then burn to disk with Disk Utility or Toast at the slowest speed available (2x-4x) to assure the best burn quality. Always use top quality media: Verbatim, Maxell or Taiyo Yuden DVD-R are the most recommended in these forums.

Thanks. The only issue I noticed with my project was that the result did not show up as a full screen display. The music and interval was fine as was the quality. Should I have done something different to get full screen? I'm sharing the slideshow with another individual so that is why I need the slideshow to be standalone as I will put it on a flash drive and he can add it to other movies and slideshows on a DVD. If I understand the suggestion re Share > DVD, it will create a QT movie which I can then place on a flash drive and he can impport it to his project Correct?

Where is it showing up not full screen? When burned and played on a TV set? In iDVD? When played on the computer with DVD player?
If the slideshow/movie is scaled to the 4:3 (DVD) size and added to an iDVD project menuy that's set for the 4:3 size it should play full screen.
