Burn pictures to playable DVD??


Hi everyone-

I'm interested to know what software folks are using to make playable DVDs of digital camera images?

I know under Windows there are a number of pieces of software to take a directory full of images and make them play on a DVD player.

Either click-to-select-next-image or slideshow would work.

I'm not looking for anything like a convert-to-video with subtitles, audio and all that --

I just want to create something similar to a contact-sheet in regular photography - something that you can view each image on a DVD player.

fyi --
Needs to run under Centos 5 and KDE, if possible
I don't intend to replace my entire distro or switch to Gnome just to do this..

tia,

duh!!

thanks, for some reason, I didn't think to add the term "slideshow" to my previous Googleizing.

So I was getting millions of hits on distros, ripping DVDS, etc-- and not on how to create this sort of thing.

You're right -- just adding "slideshow" moved those hits to the top.

again.. duh... that's what I get for trying to figure this out with no sleep..

;-)

k3b is indeed what I will use to burn the image-

But k3b itself cannot create a DVD slideshow.

It can create a data or video DVD, IF you have the files required already assembled--

which is what I'm trying out qDVDAuthor for -

that program will (hopefully) create the DVD slideshow files, and then I'll use k3b to burn it to disc.

Slideshow

I posted what I posted because I thought the
slideshow software was on the DVD player
machine itself. It is on my Panasonic
Omnivision. The player itself will slideshow
all pictures in any or all directories.
I can write my pictures to the same or many
directories. The Panasonic on command will
slideshow through these pictures.

oh, ok.



Time for a new DVD player, methinks...

I had hoped my old RCA did that -- but it just sat there.
I didn't think about trying the newer one upstairs.

It would be useful to be able to view direct browseable image files like that.
