Steeped in frustration, I found out that lowly old Graphic Converter, for which I've had no use since I moved to Adobe Creative Suite, does for the price of my ancient license what my $700 Adobe program can't do, and does it quickly -- makes a quick, perfect, standalone Quicktime slideshow with embedded music. Absolutely perfect.
Except that when I wanted to share it here, despite assurances from Youtube that it supported Quicktime .mov files, I was told the file format was incompatible. So back to another format. So back to Flash, to figuring out how to make an .flv file when .swf seems to be the only option (other than the already scorned .mov). Blah, blah, blah. With anger and agitation and the standard array of tinker's cusses, I finally put together the most primitive slideshow of still images imaginable. Perfectly serviceable, and it only took three days out of my life.
