Sorry for the late response. To busy outside work and at work.
I found and used dir2slideshow to create DVDs from photos.
This is the procedure that I use.
1. Make sure pictures are complete and in one directory in the order
dir2slideshow [-o <output directory>] [-t <Seconds per picture>] [-c
<Crossfade seconds>] -n <Slideshow name> [-T] [-M] [-s subtitle_text]
[-notitle] <Images directory>
> dir2slideshow -n 'Complete example' -t 5 my_pictures
dvd-slideshow [-n <slideshow name>] [-o <output directory>] [-b
<background jpeg>] [-a <audiofile1> -a <audiofile2> -a <audiofileN>]
[-p] [-L] [-H] [-mp2][-r] [-smp] [-border <bordersize>] [-theme
<themename>] [-f] <input text file>
> dvd-slideshow -n 'test complete' -f Complete_example.txt -a
4. Test the created *.vob file that was created with dvd-slideshow.
I use mplayer for this.
5. For a simple DVD, use dvd-menu to create a simple menu to start with.
dvd-menu -t <ButtonText1> ... -t <ButtonTextN> -f <XML_file1 |
MPEG_file1> ... -f <XML_fileN | MPEG_fileN> [-o <output directory>] [-n
<DVD Title>] [-b <background jpeg>] [-e <embed image>] [-a <audiofile>]
[-p] [-c] [-D] [-W] [-mp2] [-iso] [-nomenu] [-L]
> dvd-menu -t 'My example' -t 'Slideshow 2' -f test_complete.xml -f
test_complete.xml -n 'Complete Example DVD'
7. Test the final DVD structure for full operation.
I use mplayer or xine to test this.
8. If you wish, you can create a DATA directory for your original
pictures in the created dvd_fs directory. I do this if there is enough
space to give to others.

9. Create ISO
> mkisofs -dvd-video -udf -o dvd.iso dvd_fs
10. Burn DVD
> dvdrecord -v -eject -dao speed=4 dev=0,1,0 dvd.iso
