Making a slideshow (Windows only)

From: Photoshop Elements 9: Scanning and Restoring Photos

Video: Making a slideshow (Windows only)

Today we have a version of the old slide projectors, mine is the hot light bulb, dim lights, and bulky screen that we can view on our computers or our TVs. It's called the Slideshow and Photoshop Elements 9 makes putting one together a breeze. We are going to start out in the Organizer. I have already tagged some photos which we learned how to do in an earlier chapter. If you're following along, you can use the same ones, you can find them in the Chapter 7 folder but feel free to use your own images. Next we are going to select these, click on one and then do Control on a PC, Command on a Mac A, go over here to the green Plus sign, select New Album and let's name it Vacation and click Done.

Today we have a version of the old slide projectors, mine is the hot light bulb, dim lights, and bulky screen that we can view on our computers or our TVs. It's called the Slideshow and Photoshop Elements 9 makes putting one together a breeze. We are going to start out in the Organizer. I have already tagged some photos which we learned how to do in an earlier chapter. If you're following along, you can use the same ones, you can find them in the Chapter 7 folder but feel free to use your own images. Next we are going to select these, click on one and then do Control on a PC, Command on a Mac A, go over here to the green Plus sign, select New Album and let's name it Vacation and click Done.

Now we will go over here to Create and click it and then go down to Slide Show. Your Slide Show Preferences dialog box will pop up; let's change the Static Duration to 2 seconds. Anything you can do here, you can do in the dialog but if you want to change anything here, that's great. And click OK and now you're in your Slide Show. All your pictures are already here and you can click on each one and you can change how big they are, you can fit them into the screen, you can add some silly little graphics if you like, you can give people clothes and bow ties.

Not really appropriate for old family photos but you might find lot of great uses for them. You can also Crop to Fit, you can Fit on the Slide, you can do a little Auto Smart Fix even or get some Red Eyes out. You can come down here between slides and choose how you want it to fade in or out, you can just do all sorts of neat things. Go to each slide click on it and fit them to the screen. If you click and drag, you can move your photos so it's better in the screen, click your Fade transition.

This is so fun and it's really so easy, click on your photo, size it, lift it up, we got to see these deer here because this is great. I believe this is an old vacation that my parents took in the early 50s to a national park. That was my mom feeding the deer. Not this, these are horses. Now we will resize this last photo and we will choose Fade out and what's really need is you can put your own audio to this Slide Show.

You just click right down here and if you have an MP3 file somewhere on your system which I happen to have right here, you can put your slideshow to music. So let's see how this turns out. Go to your first photo and then click Play and how cool was that. If you have any changes to make, go ahead and make them.

This isn't set in stone and if you like what you've done go up here and Save Project or you can Output to various media. You can save it as a file from here, you can burn it to a DVD or you can edit in Photoshop Premiere Elements. You can come over here and you can save it in your different file types, you can save it to a PDF, you can even change your slide size for the web or to send through e-mail or DVD, so lot of different choices.

So let's click OK and you can save it to your hard drive. So I am going to save this, I am going to name it Vacation and save it to my desktop. This asks me if I would like to import this into my catalog and I'm going to choose No, so let's check it out.

Weather it is a keepsake or a way to amuse the family at gatherings, the Photoshop Elements 9 Slide Show is a fast and easy way to put together a great looking Slide Show project.
