Video: Adding beginning and ending title slides

By default when you create a slide show, it will begin by fading in the first image or slide, and it will end by fading out the last image or slide. Yet you can change or customize this by working with the Titles panel. The Titles panel allows you to create what's called an intro screen or an ending screen. Let me show you how this works. If we clip on the option to add an intro screen, what we can do is we can have this fade from black as you can see here. And then we can add an identity plate. In this case, I'll customize this by clicking on this menu here. And I'll select Edit in order to create a custom identity plate. In this case, I'll go ahead and type out the words, Narrative Photography, and then the words, by Chris Orwig.

Adding beginning and ending title slides

By default when you create a slide show, it will begin by fading in the first image or slide, and it will end by fading out the last image or slide. Yet you can change or customize this by working with the Titles panel. The Titles panel allows you to create what's called an intro screen or an ending screen. Let me show you how this works. If we clip on the option to add an intro screen, what we can do is we can have this fade from black as you can see here. And then we can add an identity plate. In this case, I'll customize this by clicking on this menu here. And I'll select Edit in order to create a custom identity plate. In this case, I'll go ahead and type out the words, Narrative Photography, and then the words, by Chris Orwig.

Once we have those, we can click OK. And it will give us a quick snap preview of that. And then it will jump back to the image. As you change any of these values by dragging this, it will show you temporarily. And then of course eventually it will snap back to showing you the photograph. You can also change the color by clicking on override color. And here we can select another color maybe gray, or we could also have a Hue in this if we wanted to have a color in this particular project. In this case I'll just choose white, so that we can then see that here. If we want to see this in real time, we need to press the Play button.

When you press Play, you'll notice it will start black, this will fade in, then it will fade out, or dissolve out, and the first image will appear. To exit this view, just click on the image, and will bring you back to the Slideshow panel. And we can also add an ending screen. Here I'll click on the ending screen I'll add an identity plate here. And again we'll customize that one, and I'll go ahead and just type out my domain name just for the fun of it. And again you can really add anything you want here. We'll go ahead and click OK to add that, and then scale its Size a little bit. And the again, in order to view this, we would need to click on one of the last slides.

So let's scroll down to the right over here so we can get to one of our last slides, and then we'll click Play. So we'll start the slide show here on this last image in the slideshow. This photograph will dissolve or fade out. And then it will end here with this information, which we've added. I'll click on that to navigate back to the slideshow module. So again, if you prefer to have information in the beginning or end, you can use these Intro our Outro screens. You can include just a black start, and also a black finish, or you can also add some typography via the Identity Plates.

And the Identity Plate editor as we saw here in this movie.
