I'd like to make a slideshow with an embedded music which plays in background. A time for each slide should be fixed because it is bound to music melody. What program can I use to do it?

I've thought of using PowerPoint but it has a limitation of music size and end-user can change presentation or just page through presentation without running it so music won't be played.

Maybe I should create a slideshow in SWF? But how?

I'm not sure on how to deal with the music size limit, but when you create a powerpoint presentation, iSpring will convert it to SWF so it won't be editable.

There are quite a few ways to do this. You could, for example, use Adobe Premiere Elements which is a great program, unfortunately it's not free.

Another option would be to use Microsofts Novie Maker, which, if I remember, is included with XP, but if not it can be found at:

For Windows 7 go to:

Here's a small tutorial:

Another option would be:

SWF Slideshow Maker

These are just a few ideas, there are others...
