When you're finished editing your shoot, you might want to present your images as a slideshow. Now, in order to select the images that we want to present, we could use our filters to maybe just select our one star and two star images. Or we could use the smart collection that we created in order to create a collection, and then just play these images. Or we can return to our images and we can simply move through and select the images that we want to show in our slideshow. Regardless of the way you select your images, when you're ready, all you need to do is select View and then Slideshow.
Or use the keyboard shortcut Cmd+l on Mac or Ctrl+l on Windows. Bridge automatically shows your image full screen. And then moves from one image to the next. If you tap the space bar Bridge will pause the slide show. Which is really convenient if, say, for example, you're trying to present the images and you need to control the timing because you're telling a story. While it's paused to move to the next image, you can use the right arrow key, or to move to the previous image, you can use the left arrow key.
To start the slideshow playing again, you'd simply tap the space bar again. You can also tap the h key. The h key will let you see additional shortcuts. For example, you can see how you zoom in or zoom out. If we tap the Escape key and we go back to Bridge, and choose the View menu, and then Slideshow Options. Here we can set a number of additional options, and these will become our default. So, for example, if I wanted to change the duration down to two seconds.
Or up to ten seconds, I can do so. I can also choose the Scale to Fit options. Which means you're going to see the entire image. Or I can choose scale to fill in which case, some of your image might be cropped, but it's going to fill the entire screen. I prefer the Scaled to Fit. We also have different transition options, so for example, if you don't like the default dissolve, you can choose from any of these different transitions. I'm pretty simple, so I just want my image to dissolve into the next one. And we can choose how fast or slow we want the transition. I think the default settings are pretty good, so I'll leave this alone as well. Finally, we can choose to repeat the slideshow so that when it's done, it'll simply start over again.
If I click Play, then Bridge will start playing my slideshow. If I click Done, then these become my default settings for the next time I create a slideshow. So it's as easy as that to set up a custom slide show based on the images that you want to show in Bridge.
