Chapter 5. Showing Photos Onscreen > To adjust default settings

To adjust default settings

1.
Set the length of time you want each slide to play in the Play Each Slide For field.

2.
Choose a default transition, and set the transition speed and direction, if available, by clicking the appropriate arrow in the round direction controller. iPhoto 5 offers numerous transitions (Figure 5.8).

Figure 5.8. iPhoto provides a wide variety of transitions, but I recommend using relatively few per slideshow to avoid visual over-stimulation.


3.
Select the desired checkboxes for additional display options.

4.
Decide whether you want to repeat the selected music during the slideshow or if you want iPhoto to adjust the length of the slideshow to fit the music.

5.
Choose the screen format (Current Display, 4:3 for iDVD and TV, or 16:9 Widescreen) from the Slideshow Format pop-up menu.

6.
Click OK when you're done.

✓ Tips

  • I recommend use of the Ken Burns Effect; it significantly improves most slideshows.

  • Scale Photos to Fill Screen displays only the center of portrait-orientation photos but eliminates black bands on the sides.

  • Show Slideshow Controls and Show My Ratings aren't necessary, since you can display the slideshow controls, which include the rating, just by moving the pointer during the slideshow.
