The slideshow tool is perfect for building presentations with your images in Photos. In this video, Derrick Story shows you how.
- [Instructor] We still have slideshow functionality built within Photos for Mac OS and I've taken the liberty of starting one right here, Blue Lagoon. So what I did was I went to my Photos here and I found my Blue Lagoon shots and I selected one and held down the Shift, I selected the end one, so that they're all selected, I went to My Projects, and I selected Slideshow right here, and chose Photos. All right, so that's how I got to, let me go ahead and deselect these, this right here.
(laughs) And we do have a nice little slideshow. I used the Ken Burns theme right here. So that put together both how the images move from one to the next and the music. And we have a variety of themes available to us. I like Ken Burns a lot and I'll show you how it looks here in just a second. And then we can fine-tune if we don't want to use the theme music we can go into our Music Library and do that. And we can make some adjustments in terms of fitting to music, how long to play a selected image for.
For example, I upped it to five seconds, it was a little shorter than that and I didn't think it was quite right. And Scale photos to fit screen. So we have some of that stuff waiting for us. We can Preview our show right here and that would preview it in this box. Or I can just play it. So let's just play it, so you can see it for a second. (gentle music) All right, that's pretty nice, right? (laughs) So we still have slideshows, yay.
And if you've watched my movies in the past on creating slideshows basically all that applies to this tool, so nothing has changed. So you can go back to the earlier Photos titles that I have in LinkedIn and Lynda and dig deeper into slideshows. If you want to send it outside of the application you can do that by going up here to Export, giving it a name or going with the name of your project that you've already determined. Where you want it to go, and then, of course, choosing the format.
Generally speaking you're probably going to choose 1080p, nice High Definition movie. And then click Save and it'll take all that stuff, the music, the transitions, and everything, and send it out to, in this case, the Desktop. So I'll just go ahead and Cancel that. Now one of the nice things about the slideshow functionality is that the project stays here in your Photos library, so if you want to come back and work on it some more all you have to do is click on it. And we can have additional slideshows down here as well.
So I could come back and change the timing, add some photos, change the music, all that kind of stuff. It's all there waiting for me. And if I hit the back arrow here then I can see an overview of all the projects that I have in here. And your greeting cards, prints, all that kind of stuff, even if they're from third-party vendors they will show up in this area too, so you can continue to manage them within the projects overview here. So that's a look at slideshows.
We still have that, it still works very well, you can still export out onto your Desktop and share it with other folks, and it's really a nice tool, I like it a lot.
