Exporting Photos to QuickTime

Select the photos you wish to export, and choose Export from the Share menu ().

2.
In the Export Photos dialog, click the QuickTime tab.

3.
Enter the maximum width and height for the images, a slide duration, and select a background color.

4.
To include the music associated with basic slideshows, select Add Currently Selected Music to Movie.

5.
Click Export, name your movie in the Save dialog, choose a destination for it, and click OK to build the movie.
