Another great way to review your photos, or to present them to someone else, is to use the Slideshow feature. In this video, instructor Derrick Story shows you how to do this in Capture One Pro 12.
- [Instructor] There's a nifty slideshow feature in Capture One Pro and I use it two different ways. The first way that I use the slideshow is when I want to review a shoot that I finished working on. And it's interesting as I watch the slideshow of that shoot the shots that are in there that shouldn't be in there really jump out at me. And I don't know why the slideshow makes that more apparent, but it does. So it's really helpful for a final review of a shoot. The other way I like to use it is as a presentation. I want to show someone a handful of shots, let's say a handful of landscape shots. I can put them together as a slideshow and it's a very nice way for the viewer to enjoy a series of shots. That's what I'm going to show you right now. So the slideshow function itself is under View and it's right down here at the bottom. And I'm not going to run it yet, because I want to show you how I set this up. I do want to do a landscape slideshow. And I have all these different projects that just have maybe just a few shots in there, like four shots at Lassen, six shots at Burney Falls, that kind of thing. So none of these, in themselves, would be a very long slideshow if I ran one for this album here. So what I did was I created an album inside this group of places right here, created an album called Landscape Slideshow. And the way that I did that, I just clicked on Places plus do album. Now all I have to do is just go through and pick the photos that I want and drag them into this slideshow album right here, it's really neat. So I can just pick the shots that I want and leave out the shots that I don't want. And once I have the images that I want, then I can even put 'em in the order that I want. And Capture One will honor that order. Alright, so then everything's good. And my philosophy is usually to start with a strong establishing shot, which I've done here, I think. Kind of move in on the first sequence. Then have some fun in the middle, move in and out, I like to do that. Keep the viewer awake. And then try to have a strong finish. So that's usually my approach to a slideshow. Let's see how this one works. So we'll go ahead and we'll come up here and we'll go to Slide Show. And it starts playing. Now, if I move the mouse, you'll see that I have some settings right here. And so I can change those settings and do these different things. I'm going to go ahead and check Loop so it keeps going while we're playing. That's probably not appropriate for a slideshow. So once you find the setting that you want, it's sticky. So in other words, you probably want to go through and set it up first. Woo, that's a little too much for me, isn't it? Alright, so we'll just go with standard Dissolve right now. And it should remember it. I can set the duration. So let's say I want four seconds. And then I can decide if I want the loop or not. Alright, so once I have that set up like that, then it'll remember it, and I'll show you that. Let's hit Escape to get out of here. Alright, now let's do slideshow again. So we have it set up, it's ready to go. The application will remember it. We'll go to Slide Show. And now it can just start playing and it'll do what we want. So now it's doing four seconds with the dissolve. That's the first sequence where we had an establishing shot and then we moved a little closer. And now we're doing a little variety in the middle here. Just kind of playing around and then we want to move in and out. So there we move in on the chipmunk. Then move back out to Lake Almanor over there. Up at Lassen. And this is Mill Creek here, which is also in that area. And there we finish. And I had Loop turned off, so then it stops. But you can have Loop turned on. Let's say that you're going to be just showing it and have it up for a bunch of people. You can do that, as well. When you're all done playing around, showing off your wares here, just hit the Escape key and you're out of there. So you can't export it, you can't save it, you can't add music, but it does have some really good uses, especially for reviewing your shots or for showing a handful of images to someone that is interested in your stuff.
