Chapter 5. Showing Photos Onscreen > To configure the Ken Burns Effect

To configure the Ken Burns Effect

1.
Select the Ken Burns Effect checkbox.

2.
Click the Start end of the toggle switch.

3.
Using the size slider, zoom to the size at which you want the photo to appear first (Figure 5.11).

Figure 5.11. For my starting point on this slide, I've zoomed slightly so you can see both Tristan and my grandmother Helen in the frame.


4.
Drag the photo in the display pane so the appropriate part is showing.

5.
Click the End side of the toggle switch.

6.
Using the size slider, zoom to the size at which you want the photo to fade out.

7.
Drag the photo in the display pane so the appropriate part is showing (Figure 5.12).

Figure 5.12. For the ending point, I zoomed in about a third of the way and panned so the frame focuses on Tristan's face.


8.
Click the Preview button to see if your settings work as desired.

9.
Select the next photo and repeat steps 1–9.

✓ Tips

  • Increase the slide duration to slow down the Ken Burns Effect, and decrease the slide duration to speed up the Ken Burns Effect.

  • Think carefully about whether it makes more sense to zoom in on the photo or to zoom out of the photo, given each particular picture.
