This app surprised me with very nice DVD menu templates, some of them going the extra step and offering smart animations incorporating photos from the album. The templates aim at the typical gift DVD for birthdays or Christmas, not necessarily at a semi-professional photographer to present his work ;)

The UI is intuitive and the feature set complete. It allows both randomized effects (for transactions and zoom/pan) as well as customizing those photo by photo.

Cons: applying a single type of transitions to all pictures was not really straight forward, and the album title feature was a bit disappointing especially compared to the nice menu templates. It does not blend into the album theme and looks like Flash text animations from 10 years ago ;)

After spending about two hours to edit the final DVD and replace a dummy album with a video I wanted to add to the DVD in addition to the slideshow (using VobBlanker), I noticed today that there is actually a 'add video' feature for this (absolutely no editing features though). In the evaluation version the video is watermarked though (the generated slideshow is NOT).

Export options seem very complete as well. Only tested DVD though.

All in all a good program!

infact, you can remove the text in the end. In the "Album Theme" tab, you can add some text and there will just show your own text not the website url.
