    Are you trying to do that with iPhoto? Use iMovie instead, if you wanted fixed timing. See episode 325:

      hi i need specific piece if music with specific slides the music for all the slides is in 1 song not different songs thats the problem

        I don’t understand. But any way you want it, you can time music and slides any way you want in iMovie. Just adjust the length of the slides.

      You’d need to record a narration and then lay out title and/or photos. Then adjust the length of each clip individually. It would be pretty tedious.

      Yes, it sounds to me like what you want to do would work best in Keynote. Then export from Keynote as a QuickTime movie and make a DVD using iDVD.

      Two things. First, you don’t need step 3. Once you export the video from Keynote, you can just import that into iDVD to make your DVD.
      Second, there is no “right method” to do this. Keynote, iMovie, iPhoto and iDVD are all creative tools. There are many ways to do what you are trying to do. But based on what I know, this would be a good way to try. Once you get to know these tools better, you will be able to create all sorts of things like this with lots of variation. These are artistic tools, not construction tools.
