- We have a couple really nifty slideshow options…in Photos for OS X.…I talked about one earlier on in the title…where you actually just pick an album…and you go up to the play arrow,…and you click on it.…(upbeat guitar music)…Choose the theme, and play slideshow.…And just, boom, right there.…And that's great if you want to present a handful…of images to someone in slideshow format,…and you don't want to fuss around…with creating a project or anything like that.…
Now it's kind of a one-off deal.…It's very convenient.…And for certain situations, it's perfect.…Now, there will be other times, however,…when you want to create a project and craft a slideshow.…Something that you can work on over time…and export out, and give it to other people.…Publish on a webpage, all that good stuff.…And that's what we're gonna do right now.…So, we're gonna start with an album.…And I like starting with albums…because I can create a storyboard.…I can move images around.…
Get them in the right order that I want.…For example, I might want to do something like this.…
