I'm in love with PicturesToExe http://www.wnsoft.com
for making slide presentations accompanied by synchronized music. This slide is the cover of my latest presentation which can be downloaded here: http://isabelcutler.com/MyPTESlideshows.html
All the pictures were taken with the Canon A80. Music from an audio CD was converted to mp3 with CDex. Redeyes were corrected with Paint Shop Pro 8!
