Just create a slideshow in windows moviemaker which you already have add the narration and depending on which version of wmm burn as a dvd video .The older version of wmm cant burn to dvd but thats no loss as you are better using a freebie like dvd flick to do that end of it probably better than the latest wmm at it anyway.If you ned any furthere asisatance just ask

Thanks both.

I have tried loading the images into WMM and found the same problem as with Ulead Videostudio. This is that the narration has to be recorded in a part of the timeline that does not contain video.

I need to see each image to ensure that what I say relates to it. Recording blind and then moving the narration to match the image is very hit and miss.

Is there any programme that can record narration whilst viewing the images?

I'm with Les28 regarding Serif MoviePlus, you can have as many audio tracks as you like overlaying one with the other or fading them in and out. That's how I make all my slide shows.

Please dont waste money buying anything if you tcan manage the narration with wwm then .Create your show open something like audacity its free start your show in wmm smallscreen and record as and whwn the relevant photos are on screen using audacity .Best to do acontinuos record then when done if anyn noise is present on the silent parts you can silence them in audacity(dont cut ou youll lose the sync). Save (export thattrack as . wave then impor it to wmm should only need one lining up then your ready to bur save and burn

Note nowt wrong with the suggested slide makers just not need for a basic show
