Looking for a good software to make video slides from photos


I'm looking for an open source software that'll:
1. Let me create videos from photos.
2. Allows basic editing such as adding audio and some text.
3. Has as simple and intuitive interface.

Suggestions are welcome even if they don't match the above criteria.

I found some suggestions after googling and searching LQ forums, but the posts are quite old and there may be newer software available now.

1. ffmpeg
2. ffmpeg
3. ???

Lives might be an option. Cinelerra and a few other attempts at a simplification. dvdslideshow if your destination if DVD. And a few others. I generally end up using a combination of ffmpeg, imagemagick, gimp, and bash to script anything significant. Some netpbm stuff if I need to do fancy stuff like greenscreen and whatever. Not simple, not intuitive, but mostly functional.

Thanks for the suggestions.
ManSlide does what I need, but it seems like it has been wiped from existence. I only find broken links to ManSlide.
I'll check other software.

I've used a software called Imagination (not a joke) for this purpose.

http://imagination.sourceforge.net/

In conjunction with DeVeDe.

I think OpenOffice presenter can do all of that.

Edit.

I think the name is Impress not presenter.

I think so too. I do recommend Imagination also..... I used it a while back, and it worked pretty good for me.
