I want to give you a quick overview of the slideshow functionality in both…iPhoto and Aperture.…They are both quite good as you can imagine.…One is a little simpler than the other and that would be iPhoto.…The way that you make a slideshow in iPhoto -- we're not going to walk through…all the stuff, but I want to give you a feel for it.…I'm going to hit Command+A to select all of the slides.…You go down to the Create button and there are slideshow right at the bottom…there and it puts you right in slideshow mode right here.…
Now, you can play it right now.…We could hit the Play button and off we go and you could be done and actually it…would look quite good.…Here is your Play button right here, but you do have some options.…And those options are located right down here.…You have themes to choose from, you can add music, and you have settings for the…entire slideshow and for individual slides.…
So, very straightforward, very clean, very easy to use, and you know what?…Very effective also, so that's the slideshow view here in iPhoto.…
