iphoto: how to add title to slideshow

I need to do a photo slideshow with titles and music. I've already done the slideshow and music..what I need to do now is create text in the slideshow. How do I do that? they only have a feature which shows photo title on the upper left hand corner. but I need a separate slide for titles then transition to the photos. I tried doing it in keynotes but I prefer the motion (ken burns effect) in iphoto slideshow (and it's easier to do).

imovie is quite confusing for me..the easiest one is iphoto slideshow

How about making a picture that just shows text? You can then add this picture in-between the actual pictures you're using.

You can use Photoshop, The GIMP, or any drawing software. Just make sure to check the quality of the picture!

Make a slide(s) in keynote, save it to a jpeg, then put it in iPhoto like a regular picture.

do the photo slideshow in keynote instead and save it as a quicktime movie much more flexibility there in terms of effects and design that's what i would do

I use iDVD; obviously one has to have a DVD burner to do so. Each picture in the slideshows allows you to put in a title and a description. You can create a playlist to play in the background. The slideshow speed adjusts to the length of the playlist.
