Chapter 5. Showing Photos Onscreen > To configure a basic slideshow

To configure a basic slideshow

1.
Select one or more photos or albums, and click the triangular slideshow button underneath the Source pane.

iPhoto opens the Slideshow dialog. Click the Settings tab (Figure 5.2).

Figure 5.2. Configure how your slideshow displays using the Settings pane of the Slideshow dialog.


2.
Set the transition type, direction (by clicking the appropriate arrow in the round direction controller), and speed.

3.
Enter the length of time you want each photo to remain on the screen, and select desired additional display options.

4.
If you want music to play during your slideshow, see “Assigning Music to Slideshows,” on the next page.

5.
Click Save Settings or Play.

✓ Tips

  • Save Settings records your settings for future uses of basic slideshows.

  • 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.
