Every person has its own good as well as bad memories. Even they have pictures with them to keep those memories alive. But the best way to present these pictures is nothing but slideshow. Showing the right picture at right time is the best way to make it sensible. And it can only happen with the help of slideshow. This feature is best used in the iPhoto of Apple. Since Apple being the best and reliable brand, it can be trusted for its features offered. Unlike the iMovie it is less complicated and can be assembled and played through the Quick time payer very easily.
After following a systematic procedure, the files can be transferred to the Quick Time player as it is self playable. And these files can be easily transferred to even more complicated programs like iMovie, iDVD and Final Cut Pro. Following are the steps that have to be followed for creating a slideshow in iPhoto:
Step 1: Open the iPhoto. If the user already has pictures in it, go to “File,” “New Album” and name the new album of pictures. The user can take all the pictures he want from the “Photos Library” and drag them to the New Album. If the user doesn’t already have photos in iPhoto, he can easily drag them from a memory card or hard drive directly into “My Movie” or into the Library.
Step 2: Go to “My Movie” and start placing the photos in sequence as the user wants them to be shown in the slideshow. He can also click-hold-drag photos to any set in the album. If they are flipped or on their sides, use the Rotate function in the bottom toolbar to adjust them.
Step 3: choose all pictures in “My Movie” (drag around them or Command-A). Click “Slideshow” in the bottom toolbar. This will create an instantaneous slideshow and will situate it under “Slideshows” in the left toolbar.
Step 4: The user can also add effects using “Effects” in the bottom toolbar. He can also join the “Ken Burns Effect,” too, and this is based on the documentary filmmaker’s technique of slowly going into or pulling out of a photo. You can use a Transitions button to set how the slides will play from one to the next. For more direct control, use the Settings button. You can set how the slides will transition between each other, the transition speed and other details here.
Step 5: Click on “Music” which is in the bottom toolbar. The user can bring his own music or pre-arranged musical bits to attend the slideshow here. The user can use the “Preview button” to see and heed as how the slideshow will look when finished.
Step 6: Go to the “File” menu and select “Export.” Then the popup will allow the user to opt Small, Medium or Large for the slideshow file. The large one will look best, but Small will be the quickest. Export the slideshow. Open it with QuickTime and watch the finished version.
