Either select a playlist from the list above the songs or a song from the song list (Figure 5.3).

Figure 5.3. Pick either an entire playlist or one or more songs to play during your slideshow.


✓ Tips

  • Unfortunately, although iPhoto 5.0 allows you to select multiple songs at once (and even shows you the total duration in a tooltip if the pointer hovers over one of the selected songs), only the last one clicked will play. Until Apple addresses this limitation, the only way to play multiple songs is to select an entire playlist.

  • To search for a song, enter the first few characters in its name or the artist's name in the Search field. iPhoto narrows the list as you type. Click the X button to clear the Search field and expand the list.

  • To sort the list of songs, click the header of the Song, Artist, or Time column; sorting by time makes it easier to match the music to your slideshow's length.

  • Click the triangular Play button to play the selected song; click it again to stop.

  • If iPhoto doesn't pick up the sort order of a playlist from iTunes correctly, quit iTunes.
