Creating and Deleting Saved Slideshows


Basic slideshow are easy, but for more control over your slideshow's presentation, create a saved slideshow instead. Saved slideshows are also ideal if you plan to show the same slideshow on multiple occasions.

To create a saved slideshow (I):

  • Select one or more photos or albums, and click the Slideshow button underneath the display pane.

    iPhoto creates a new saved slideshow in the Source pane and displays the slideshow tools under the display pane (Figure 5.4).

    Figure 5.4. iPhoto provides slideshow tools under the display pane only when you select a saved slideshow in the Source pane.


To create a saved slideshow (II):

1.

Select one or more photos or albums, and click the + button underneath the Source pane.

2.

In the dialog that appears, choose Slideshow from the New pop-up menu and enter a name for the slideshow in the Name field (Figure 5.5).

Figure 5.5. When creating a saved slideshow via the + button, iPhoto gives you a chance to change the automatic name it creates based on the currently selected album.


iPhoto creates a new saved slideshow in the Source pane and displays the slideshow tools under the display pane.

To delete a saved slideshow:

  • Select the saved slideshow in the Source pane, press , and click Delete when iPhoto asks if you're sure. Or just press to avoid the warning dialog.

  • Either select the slideshow and choose Delete Slideshow from the Photos menu or -click it and choose Delete Slideshow from the contextual menu.

Tips

  • iPhoto automatically names your slideshow after the currently selected album.

  • iPhoto won't let you create a saved slideshow if you select a book, card, calendar, or another saved slideshow instead of an album or individual photos.

  • You can also create a slideshow by duplicating an existing one, which can be helpful if you want to experiment with different settings without losing any work. With the slideshow selected, choose Duplicate from the Photos menu or -click it and choose Duplicate from the contextual menu.
