Can an iPhoto slide show be dumped to a CD so that friends with a Microsoft Winderz PC can view? If so, how? I tried the "Burn CD" button on bottom left but all that does is save the whole photo library to CD not the annimated slide show. -- -=[cwa]=- chris at cwaiken dot net www.cwaiken.net...

    Default iPhoto Slide Shows

    Can an iPhoto slide show be dumped to a CD so that friends with a
    Microsoft Winderz PC can view? If so, how? I tried the "Burn CD"
    button on bottom left but all that does is save the whole photo library
    to CD not the annimated slide show.

    There are a couple of ways to accomplish this, depending upon whether
    your "Winderz"-using friends have QuickTime installed on their PCs.

    If they have QuickTime, just use the Export command in the File menu,
    choosing To QuickTime and then burn the resulting .mov file (make sure
    it has the .mov extension or Windows won't know that it is a QuickTime
    movie).

    If they don't have QuickTime, your best bet is to send them an MPEG
    file of some sort. Take the QuickTime movie created via Export and run
    it through ffmpegX to create a VCD file (that's an MPEG-1). You could
    also send it to them as a DivX, using ffmpegX. Alternatively, you can
    just drop the QT movie on Toast's VideoCD pane, assuming you have a
    copy of Toast, and Toast will convert the file for you and burn the
    result.

    Other possibilities exist as well, but are more convoluted or require
    additional software.

    Thanks Spencer,
    I never thought to use the "Export". I think the *.mov will work fine
    for them.
