Next I want to take a look at how we can preview and play back our slideshows when we're in the Slideshow module. So here we are inside of the Slideshow module. I have selected my template that I want to use, which is Crop To Fill, and I want to preview this, yet I don't want the slideshow to take over my entire screen. Rather, I want to see it inside of this area of the Lightroom interface. In order to preview your slideshow in that area, what you do is press Option+Return on a Mac, or Alt+Enter on Windows.
And here, you can see that it will play back the slideshow inside of this area. When you're ready to exit out of that preview, just go ahead and click, and then it will exit, or stop that preview. All right, well what about playing a slideshow? Let's say that you're ready to see the slideshow, and you want to see it full screen. Well, if you're inside of the Slideshow module, you can just press Enter or Return. What it will do is then launch the slideshow. As the slideshow is playing, you may decide that you want to pause on a photograph.
To do that, press the spacebar key. You'll notice there's a little Pause icon in the lower left-hand corner. To replay the slideshow, or to keep it going, just press Pause again, and then it will start playing that slideshow. If ever you decide that you want to click through the slideshow yourself, if it's going too slow, as it is here, well, just press the Spacebar key to pause, then you can use your arrow keys. Press the right arrow key to navigate forward through the slideshow; press the left arrow key in order to navigate backwards through the slideshow.
Once you've decided that you want to end or exit the slideshow, just press the Escape key, as we did before, in order to exit that slideshow, and to go back to the Slideshow module.
