This is another lesson for Windows users only. Windows users, if you want a slideshow that's a lot quicker to prepare than the elaborate slideshow that I covered in the last couple of movies, consider making a Flipbook. A flipbook which is named after the paper flipbook that we use to thumb through as kids, makes a quick moving animation of a sequence of photos. So it's great for animating some still photos that you've taken quickly one after the other. I'll start by selecting a series of photos here in the organizer. Clicking on one, holding the shift key and clicking on the last.
Then I'll go to create tab on the right side of the organizer, and I'm going all the way down to more options. I'll click there and at the bottom of the menu is Flipbook. I'll click on flipbook, and that opens the Flipbook window, with some rudimentary settings for setting up a flipbook. I can preview my flipbook by clicking the play arrow here, and as you can see it runs really fast by default. I can slow it down by moving the speed slider over to the left to reduce the number of frames per second slightly.
I'm going to leave loupe preview checked, so that it plays over and over. And then I'll click the play button again. And then I'll click Pause. If I want to view it in reverse order from back to front, I'll click reverse order and I'll play again. And then I'll pause again. So I'm going to uncheck reverse order, but I will leave Loop Preview checked and I'll leave the speed at nine frames per second. Then I'll choose some output settings. The only format in which I can save the Flipbook is the .wmv or Windows Media Player Format.
But I can't choose the size at which I'm going to save from this menu. Here is an appropriate size for sending the file by E-Mail, for posting on the Web, for viewing on a Computer Monitor, and more. If you want to learn more about any one of these size settings, you can select it and then click the details button. I'll click OK there, and now I'm ready to output my Flipbook. So I'll click the output button and that opens the save window right to my videos library. I'll save there, I'll give the WMV file a more meaningful name, I'll call this one Kate_Jeb, and then I'll click the save button.
It takes a moment to write the WMV file, and when Elements has finished, I get this message that the Flipbook has been automatically saved into my organizer. And here it is at the top of my media browser ready to play. So I'll click OK, I'll click on the WMV file and I'll click the play button. So that's all there is to making a Flipbook, although it's not as elaborate as a full-fledged Windows slideshow that I showed in the last movie, a Flipbook is a fun way for you Windows users to show a short action sequence of your photos.
