Important Caveat: Despite its relatively small file size (for a movie), I have found that many people still are not satisfied with the .wmv format. It won't play your home DVD player. Folks often want to distribute their photo stories to others on DVD, such as Grandma and Grandpa. To do that, you will have to pay $19.99 and download the PhotoStory DVD Plugin, made by Sonic. You can get that from this site. Add this plug-in to Photo Story 3 and burn your slideshows to DVD. Just install it, create your slideshow, and an option to create a DVD appears. The plug-in allows you to import old slideshows and burn those to DVD, too. For a complete step-by-step tutorial entitled "Burn a Photo Story to DVD and Watch It on Your TV," click here.
One more tip: If you save your photo story as a Project, you can go back later and add more pictures and even photo editing effects, or even change the music. Take a look at the video sample I created below. It took me less than 10 minutes from start to finish. Honest. Click here to download PhotoStory.
