Show off your hard work; display your photographs with the easy-to-build slideshows and web galleries in Lightroom. They're a straightforward way to display images on the web, on the desktop, or projected onto a screen. In this breezy segment of Lightroom 5 Essentials, Chris Orwig explains how to select your best images and group them into collections, apply a design template, and customize the look and feel of your web gallery or slideshow. Then learn about watermarking photos for copyright protection, uploading HTML and Flash galleries to a website, and adding a soundtrack and titles to a slideshow. Plus, discover how to create video-based slideshows, new to Lightroom 5.
So far in this chapter, I've highlighted a few techniques that you can use in order to preview, and to play back your slideshow projects. In this movie, what I want to do is share with you a few new shortcuts, and also review a few old ones, which will help you to perhaps more effectively preview and play your slide show projects. So, let's begin by talking about Preview. If you click on the Preview button here, it will Preview a slide show here inside of this area of the Lightroom interface. You can also do the same thing by way of a keyboard shortcut combination, on a MAC you press Option+Return, on Windows that's Alt+Enter.
This will then launch or play the slide show in this area. If you want to pause an image, we'll tap the Spacebar key. That will then pause on a photograph. If you want to exit the slide show, you have two options. You can either click into the slideshow area, or you can also just tap the Escape key. Think Escape as the shortcut key which allows you to get out, or to escape from the slide show. And when it comes time to launch the slideshow in full screen, to take over everything, you can press another keyboard shortcut combo. On a Mac you press Command+Return, on Windows that's Control+Enter. And again this will launch the slideshow.
The Spacebar key allows you to pause on an image. Press the Spacebar key again and it will continue to play. And you can also escape or quit the slide show either by clicking into the slide show itself or by pressing the Escape key.
