Chapter 6. Sharing Photos > Exporting to QuickTime Movies

Exporting to QuickTime Movies

iPhoto slideshows are great if people can gather at your computer, but iPhoto’s QuickTime movie export is the easiest way to create a slideshow you can send to others in email or on CD. (It’s much easier than iMovie or iDVD, though not as powerful.)

To export photos to a QuickTime movie:

1.
Select an album or the individual photos you wish to publish.

2.
Choose Export from the File menu ().

iPhoto displays the Export Photos dialog.

3.
If it’s not selected, click the QuickTime tab (Figure 6.69).

Figure 6.69. Use the options in the QuickTime tab of the Export Photos dialog to configure your QuickTime movie.


4.
Enter the maximum width and height for the images, how long each image displays, and select a background color.

5.
If you want the music currently selected for use with the current album to play with the movie, select the “Add currently selected music to movie” checkbox.

6.
Click Export, name your movie in the Save dialog, choose a destination for it, and click Save.

iPhoto builds the movie.

7.
Switch to the Finder, locate your movie, and double-click it to see the results in QuickTime Player (Figure 6.70).
