    I may be missing something here so if it's obvious I apologise..

    In iPhoto 09 I've created an album of images I would like to use as a slideshow and send that slideshow to iDVD. So, I select all the images, press the slideshow Play button and the slideshow plays. I can change the theme etc, but can't see a way to save this or share to iDVD whilst retaining the slideshow settings.

    Am I being really really stupid or is the Slideshow in iPhoto 09 a "view only" from within iPhoto and can't be saved and exported?

    I think it may have been possible in 08 but I'm not sure.

    Ultimately I want to create 3 x different Slideshows using 3 of the new 09 themes and send them to iDVD, but can see how to save/export/share the slideshow whilst retaining the settings I choose.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    Rather than running the slideshow by clicking the icon, use the + symbol in the very bottom left of the iPhoto window. Then choose "slideshow" in the box that pops up, give it a name. Then you can build your slide show and it will appear in the list on the left. That way it will be saved and you can export it, or what ever you like.

    I hope that helped,
