    Is is possible to bring an iPhoto slideshow created with a THEME into iDVD? I can SHARE a "basic" slideshow to iDVD, but when I create one with a theme, i.e., Scrapbook, it doesn't work in iDVD.

    I've just done it. Which OS/iPhoto/iDVD versions are you using?

    Snow Leopard / iPhoto ’09 / iDVD 7.1.2

    I'd like to make sure I was clear: After creating a slideshow in iPhoto using the scrapbook THEME [multiple photos on each page] AND 2 different songs, the slideshow shows up in iDVD as a BASIC slideshow of 1 photo at-a-time, playing only the 1st song, repeating it when it finishes.

    Thanks!

    OK, so my first attempt was just 4 photos. However, just tried 135 photos, two songs in Scrapbook and it works fine. iPhoto09 v 8.1.2 and iDVD 7.1.2

    I'm obviously doing something wrong. Would it be asking too much for you to tell me what steps you used after creating the iPhoto slideshow?
