I have been asked to create a DVD video of pictures that are put to music. I want to be able to slide the pictures in, and do some cool effects with it. What program is the easiest to do this with. Adobe Premiere?
any DVD authoring software allow that, but WinDVD creator, or the DVD authoring from the latest Roxio or Nero suite will do it good too. I use DVD builder from Roxio Easy media creator with good success..

if you can get your hands on premier, then use it. it's the best out there. the others will do the job too but they won't offer you the same flexibility that premier does. only thing is that premier isn't designed to be as "consumer friendly" as the others and does take a while to figure out.
if this is just a once off thing then one of the other progs will probably be a better bet, i have used pinnacle studio 9 in the past and it's perfectly competant for small projects but sh*te for big ones.
know your limits, and never stop trying to exceed them!
