Chapter 10: Making Video DVDs and Movies
an initial list in Windows Photo Gallery and accessed Windows DVD Maker, you
can’t go back to Windows Photo Gallery and select an additional set of pictures and
videos to add. This means you’ll have to select all the pictures and videos first to
make the most out of this shortcut.
Sometimes, though, you want to add hundreds of items to a video, and it isn’t always
practical to select each item individually in Windows Photo Gallery before starting
Windows DVD Maker. Here’s one handy workaround I’ve come up with:
1. In Windows Photo Gallery, turn on the Info Pane by clicking the Info button.
Only one instance of Windows DVD Maker can be open at a time.
Because of this, you must start Windows Photo Gallery and then click
➝ Video DVD to open Windows DVD Maker.
2. Select one or more items that you want to add to the video DVD.
3. In the Info Pane, click Add Tags, type a unique name that identifies the video
you are creating, such as Stanek Family DVD Volume 1, and then press Enter
(see Figure 10-4).
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you’ve added this tag to all the pictures and videos for
the video DVD. You don’t have to type the tag each time, however. Instead, when
you click Add Tags, select the tag in the list provided, and then press Enter.
