Burn iPhoto Slideshow to DVD on Mac (Mavericks)

iPhoto is the Mac default photo manipulation application. In Mavericks, iPhoto is available from the Mac App Store. It allows you to import pictures from digital cameras, scanners, picture CDs and the Internet to the iPhoto Library. Then you can organize, edit, print, transfer and share the imported photos with ease. It also lets you make dynamic slideshows of photos and music for exporting to QuickTime movie files and further editing in iMovie.

If you are lucky to have iDVD on your Mac, you can even burn the slideshows to DVD discs with it. However, the iDVD was no longer pre-installed on Macs shipping with OS X 10.7 Lion. That’s to say, if you’d like to burn your iPhoto slideshow to DVD on OS X 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.9 Mavericks, you have to turn to a third-party DVD burning application.

The DVD Photo Slideshow is such a great tool for burning iPhoto slideshow to DVD. It is fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8 and 10.9. It lets you import slideshow video files generated with iPhoto into the project and burn iPhoto slideshow to DVD with ease.

Create Photo Slideshow Video for Sharing on Instagram

Instagram is an online photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, apply digital filters to them, and share them on a variety of social networking services, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr. A distinctive feature is that it confines photos to a square shape, similar to Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid images, in contrast to the 16:9 aspect ratio now typically used by mobile device cameras. Users are also able to record and share short videos lasting for up to 15 seconds.

The Photo Story App for iPhone and iPad can help you make a slideshow video of your Camera Roll or Instagram photos and directly share to Instagram.
