There are basically two types of slideshows in iPhoto. There is what I call the on-the-fly slideshow, which is whenever you're anywhere looking at events and you see the Slideshow button, you just press it and you have a slideshow just like that. (Music playing) This is an improvement in iPhoto '11 because Apple wanted to make it easier for people to share their images that way. Now we also have the traditional slideshow project and I have one of these setup right here.
And with these, you can customize the show a little bit more. You can move slides around, and if you want to export your slideshow outside of iPhoto, this is also the way to go and you notice that we have an Export button right there. But I think the real point is that you don't have to create a slideshow project in order to have very good slideshows in iPhoto. There are number of templates that are available to you and when you go to create one, even on-the-fly like I am going to do with Germany right now, you just make a few quick choices for Themes, Music, and Settings, click Play, and off to the races you go.
What's really interesting is that iPhoto will remember the settings for each group of photos. So where there it's an event or a collection of faces or an album, once you create an on-the-fly slideshow iPhoto will associate those settings with that particular slideshow. So most of the time, just look for the Slideshow button at the bottom, press it, make a few clicks, and you have a great slideshow to share with people, and if you want to customize it a bit more or export it, then create the project and we're going to dig deeper into both of those.
