First, you should organize your photos or slides by groups.
This is very import and it should be considered as the skeleton of your photo DVD slide-show.
You can group them by date, location, families, trips or whatever else is significant to the story that you are trying to tell.
By specifically grouping the shots you can then look at the total and decide in which order you want each group to run in the photo DVD slideshow.
After you have grouped your shots, number each shot in the order that you want it to appear within the group during your slideshow.
Once again the images can be numbered based on time, dates, or any progression that you prefer.
The order that the slides appear in is a personal choice that gives you more control over how you tell the story.
By numbering the slides, you can easily tell whoever is doing your slide show, which slides you want to blow up, colorize, or indicate where you want to add titles.
Personalize your DVD photo slideshow by adding your own favorite music.
Music adds so much to a slide show that you should definitely be involved in choosing what music you want behind the groups in your slide show.
You can add the music by importing from a CD, or if you choose to have a professional do your slide show, just send the CD's of your choice along with notes on which pieces of music that you want under each group.
Take the time to title your photo DVD slideshow.
Titles can enhance your slideshow by setting the scene and providing the dates or the names of people that some of your audience may not be aware of.
All of these photo DVD slideshow tips serve to personalize your slideshow, while improving the quality and the intimacy of your slide show.
