Video: Creating a simple slideshow

When you want to present a slideshow of your photographic images. Lightroom provides a wide variety of options for controlling the overall appearance of that slideshow. But I want to show you just how quick and easy it can be to present a slideshow once you have a template for the slideshow that you're happy with. I'm in the library module at the moment and I'm simply going to navigate to a folder that contains images I would like to include in my slideshow. You can see that I have twelve images on the filmstrip, so a relativity small collection of images in this case.

Creating a simple slideshow

When you want to present a slideshow of your photographic images. Lightroom provides a wide variety of options for controlling the overall appearance of that slideshow. But I want to show you just how quick and easy it can be to present a slideshow once you have a template for the slideshow that you're happy with. I'm in the library module at the moment and I'm simply going to navigate to a folder that contains images I would like to include in my slideshow. You can see that I have twelve images on the filmstrip, so a relativity small collection of images in this case.

Once I've identified the images that I want to include in the slideshow, in other words, that they're available on the filmstrip. I can simply switch to the slideshow module. Then on the left panel I can choose a template from the template browser. I'll go ahead and choose widescreen. Then I need to check my playback options in terms of which images will be included in the slide show. You can see that I have my use options set to all film strip photos. If I wanted to include only a subset of the images on the film strip, I could select thse images for example, and then chose selected photos from the popup.

And if I have assigned pick flags to the images that I would like to include in the slide show. Then I could turn on the flag photos option from that popup. In this case I don't have any of the images flagged. And I actually want to include all of the filmstrip photos so I'll leave the option here set to all filmstrip photos and then I'm all set. I've chosen the images, I've chosen my template, I've specified that I want all filmstrip photos to be included. And so now if I click the play button, Lightroom will present a slideshow using that template for all the images that I had on the film strip.

So as you can see it can be very, very simple to select images, choose the template, and play the slideshow. In many situations once you've actually taken the time to create a template, that's all you need to do to present your images as a slideshow.
