our tv is the crt type. presumably 4x3.
I have a bunch of pics that I wish to make a slide show with.
is there a good free software that still can make it in the 4x3 format?

Windows dvd makes seems to offer 4x3 but the output is still 16x9
The frame you've shown is 16:9 with a 4:3 image inside of it. How do you expect a narrow image to fill a wider 16x9 frame? The output really is 4:3. Your display is adding side pillars the way it's supposed to. You can fill the frame by distorting the image and stretching it for 16:9 output. Your choice.
wide screens and 4:3 video have been around for a very very very very looooong time. Should be no surprise by now.- My sister Ann's brother
You mean well but are insulting.
I did NOT chose the 16.9 format- see pic selection box.
I do NOT wish the pillars - that is why I chose 4.3
Have you actually tried a test burn and watched the slideshow on your TV, or are you basing your question on how things look in Windows? (Because what you see on your computer monitor and what you see on your TV screen are often two very different things.)
also the computer wont connect to the ancient TV so I need software that will let me make a DVD to put in the VCR/DVD combo
AHA!!! it is full screen on the TV! now to stop it doing all that zooming!
I have made the slide show
I hope you see now that LMotlow was:
1. Not insulting
2. Showing you the mistake you had in your original assumption of mis-output.
3. Giving you good advice on standard rules to remember when dealing with such material (e.g. square peg-round hole conundrum).
Well, okay, I'll word it differently:
It appears you really are outputting 4:3 video, but the viewer in that editor insists on displaying a 16:9 frame. There are some Windows media players that will play at 4:3 if you don't hit the "full screen" button on the player. Full screen on a 16:9 monitor really means "full screen", i.e, wide screen, and fills your desktop edge to edge. So a 4:3 image will appear pillarboxed at that setting.
