    Photo Video / Slideshows?

    I am looking into birthphotography and I have 3 birth booked in to photograph! (very exciting)

    I have and use Flash Slideshow Maker and for Music, just google "Royalty free music" and you'll find a bunch of site with minimal or totally free music that you can download and use.

    I can second the use of ProShow Gold. I now use ProShow Producer which has more features but for what you want to accomplish Gold should be good enough. There is also a great forum for ProShow users (

    As far as using music, you need to carefully read the contract terms to see what you are and are not allowed to do. Rules may be different for commercial use than for private use.
