Video: Saving the slideshow as a video

In addition to being able to play a slideshow back directly on the computer, or even export that slideshow as a PDF that we could for example email to others, we could also produce a video of our slideshows. The process is really quite simple. Once you've selected the images you want to include in the slideshow, perhaps chosen a template as the basis of the slideshow and then fine tune the settings over on the right panel in the Slideshow module, you're ready to presumably playback that slideshow, but you can also export it as a video. Within the Slideshow module at the bottom of the left panel, you'll find an Export Video button, If you click that button you'll have a dialog presented, where you can navigate to the location where you would like to save your slideshow video. You can give the file a name of course, I'll call this Small Town details, since that's what I have called the slideshow in general. I can also choose the Video Preset, in other words which size I would like to use for presenting the slideshow.

Saving the slideshow as a video

In addition to being able to play a slideshow back directly on the computer, or even export that slideshow as a PDF that we could for example email to others, we could also produce a video of our slideshows. The process is really quite simple. Once you've selected the images you want to include in the slideshow, perhaps chosen a template as the basis of the slideshow and then fine tune the settings over on the right panel in the Slideshow module, you're ready to presumably playback that slideshow, but you can also export it as a video. Within the Slideshow module at the bottom of the left panel, you'll find an Export Video button, If you click that button you'll have a dialog presented, where you can navigate to the location where you would like to save your slideshow video. You can give the file a name of course, I'll call this Small Town details, since that's what I have called the slideshow in general. I can also choose the Video Preset, in other words which size I would like to use for presenting the slideshow.

In this case, the slideshow was a wide screen high resolution display, so I'll choose the 720P option. I'll go ahead and click the Save button and Lightroom will process all of my images and use them to create a video file that will match all of the settings that I have used for the slideshow. So this will be exactyl the same slideshow presentation that I would have had, if I had clicked the Play button. The only difference is that it is now a self contained video file. This can be convenient if your traveling and want to have that file readily available, or if you wanted to post your slideshow online trhough video sharing services, such as Vimeo or Youtube for example.

So this is a very convenient option for actually sharing your slideshows in video form. Once Lightroom has finished processing my video, encoding the images, and creating the video file. I can minimize Lightroom, and here on my desktop, I'll find that Small Town Details video file. I can double-click on that file and it will open in my Media Player. And then I can present the slideshow as a video. So again, I can play this on any computer or send the image to others, and even upload it to a video sharing service. So this provides us with a very convenient way of sharing or otherwise presenting our slideshow, as a self-contained video that can be played on virtually any computer or other device.
