Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Arranging the order of your show, part of Creative Slideshows with Aperture.
When it comes to creating a slideshow, chances are, you want to play with the…order of the slides. This is usually done for storytelling purposes, perhaps you…want to start with a good wide shot that helps set the location and lets the…viewer know what the slideshow is all about.…Maybe in the middle you want some great action shots or really a funny shot to…keep them interested.…Then at the end you want a nice strong photo that really leaves them with a good…positive memory about you and your photography.…Well this is all just simply putting the pieces in the right order.…
Think of it a lot like having a bunch of cue cards on a deck and you go ahead…and move those around on the table to get them organized. Or in the old days, a…real light table with photographic negatives that would get shuffled around.…Aperture makes this whole process pretty easy.…With a project, album or Smart Album selected, you can go ahead and switch on…over to Browser view.…I typically will also adjust the size of the thumbnails making it easier to see…
