Using the Media Browser

So I would like to talk about the Media Browser. Media Browser is a great way to bring in elements into your slide show. I'm going to go up to here to Media Browser button click it once. You can see here you can bring in audio from iTunes. You can bring in movies from iMovie or photos that are in your iPhoto Library as seen here. And this is a real fast way that you can have access to all of these different types of media to drop them straight into your presentation. Now for using these exercises you can also drop in your folder into a Media Browser and I want to show you how to do that. So what I'm going to do is I'm just going to pull down my window here, double-click in my Exercise Files window and I can see the Superbike Media folder. This is something I want to put into my Media Browser. So, I'm going to move this down a little bit more so I can see the Superbike Media folder and now if I just click, hold and drag this here until that green plus sign appears and let go, it now has brought in that folder into my Media Browser. So, all of these items that are in your Exercise File are now available here in the Media Browser and we'll be using this throughout the course so it's really handy to have it right here.

We will move this up and close out this window just to clean it up a bit. One other thing I would like to do is right-click in this window here, we can display these as a list which is really handy to understand some of the parameters of the images that are in there and in fact I'm going to right-click again in this column and under here in Show Columns I'm going to add Dimensions and what this allows me to do is see the actual dimensions in pixel sizes of the particular images that I have and I'm going to readjust these column widths here so I can see the title and the dimensions altogether.

So the Media Browser not only gives you an image, but some useful information to allow you to make the right choice for your presentation.
