Video: Adding music to slideshows

In this lesson I am going to show you how to add sound and music to your slideshows. Let's go down here. We're going to look at the Playback Options. Now it's a little bit different on Windows than it is on the Mac. If you're on Mac, basically what you're going to do is you're going to use iTunes. And then when you're in iTunes, create a Custom Playlist and then when you go here and then you choose the Soundtrack, turn it on and then when you click Music, you're going to get the Option to choose your iTunes Library. Here on Windows though, what we basically need to do is have a folder with our music in it.

Adding music to slideshows

In this lesson I am going to show you how to add sound and music to your slideshows. Let's go down here. We're going to look at the Playback Options. Now it's a little bit different on Windows than it is on the Mac. If you're on Mac, basically what you're going to do is you're going to use iTunes. And then when you're in iTunes, create a Custom Playlist and then when you go here and then you choose the Soundtrack, turn it on and then when you click Music, you're going to get the Option to choose your iTunes Library. Here on Windows though, what we basically need to do is have a folder with our music in it.

Whatever music we put in that folder is going to a play as a List, and we don't get to choose the individual songs, we just get to choose whatever is on the list, so make sure you put just the songs you want inside that Folder. So currently I am choosing the Desktop and I'm going to go down to my music folder, and I am just going to click OK. And I have three tunes in there from Triple Scoop Music. And just a little side note here: Triple Scoop Music have some fantastic royalty-free music, all done from Emmy-award-winning musicians.

And you can check out the Extras folder and you'll see some sample. They have kindly given us three sample songs for you to play around with your slideshows there. And you'll see those on the CD or if you've get the Download version you'll find it in the, in the Extras Folder. You'll find it there. Also I have a got a link from here to go to the Triple Scoop music site and where you can actually get an exclusive discount on this music. So anyway, we've turned the music on and then what we're going to do is we're going to of look at the Slide Duration.

We can change the Duration how long we want each slide to last and also how long we want the fades or the transitions to go between them. And a final note: if we choose Random Order, rather than playing these slides in the order that they have here starting at the first one and going all the way through, they will basically just play randomly. So now that we've got our music set and we've got our duration set I'm not really going to in change it. Sit back and enjoy the show. Let's hit the Play button.
