Chapter 5. Showing Photos Onscreen > To create an iMovie slideshow

To create an iMovie slideshow

1.
In iMovie HD, click the Photos button and drag your desired photos into the timeline (Figure 5.15). iMovie can see all your photos stored in iPhoto, and you can limit the display by selecting an album.

Figure 5.15. Use iMovie to produce and distribute slideshows that are significantly more complex than is possible in iPhoto alone.


2.
To record audio, click the Audio button, click the button next to Microphone, and record your narration, clicking the button again to stop recording (Figure 5.16). Repeat for each photo's voice-over.

Figure 5.16. To record audio, click the Audio button, click the round button to the right of the Microphone feedback, and speak. Click that button again to stop.


3.
In the timeline, arrange your photo clips with the voice-over clips underneath.

4.
Check the length of each photo's voice-over, and with the Ken Burns Effect controls, set the length of time for the photo clip to match that of the voice-over.

5.
Click the Titles button, type your text in the available fields, and select a title style (Figure 5.17). Adjust the time the title will display to match the photo clip length. Drag the title style on top of the desired photo clip. Repeat for each photo.

Figure 5.17. To add titles, click the Titles button and use the controls to type and format your title.


6.
View your slideshow by positioning the timeline slider all the way to the left and clicking Play or Play Full Screen.

✓ Tip

  • To avoid applying the Ken Burns Effect (panning and zooming) to a photo, deselect the Ken Burns Effect checkbox, and, if necessary, click the Update button.
