Imagination is a lightweight and simple DVD slide show maker written in C language and built with the GTK+2 toolkit, there are some other GUIs which do the job, but they usually require a lot of dependencies to be installed first and often their interfaces are bloated. Imagination has been designed from the ground up to be fast, light and easy-to-use.

 

 




To use Imagination, you import a series of pictures and some audio files to accompany them. You choose transition effects to go from image to image, as well as slow zooming and panning on each photo (”Ken Burns effects”). You can also specify text on the slides. Imagination then produces a slideshow and plays the specified music in the background. At the end of the slideshow the music fades out. Release 2.0 includes some useful new features. Overview mode lets you organize your slides in a matrix. You can cut, copy, and paste the slides, and drag and drop audio files into the background music.
