Make A Slide Show In Adobe Photoshop

Slideshows are a great way to take images, whether they are photographs or custom created images, and put them together in a personalized file to show them to your friends and family. Adobe Photoshop Elements is a powerful version of Adobe Photoshop that gives you virtually unlimited editing control over your photos and videos. Although working through the controls for Photoshop may seem overwhelming to the novice, you can create a basic slideshow with ease.

Instructions

1. Open Adobe Photoshop. Click on “File” and select “Open.” Browse to the location of one of the images that you want to include in your slideshow and click “Open.” You will need to repeat this step with each of the images you want to add to your slideshow.

2. Click on the first image. Hold down the “Shift” key on your keyboard and click on the bottom, right image. This selects all of the currently opened images for the slideshow.

3. Click on the “Create” tab in the task pane. Click the “Slide Show” option and the slideshow preferences dialog box will appear.

4. Change the “Static Duration” value to the length of time that you want the image to show in the slideshow. Note that increasing this time makes the image appear for longer and decreasing this time makes the image appear for a shorter amount of time.

5. Change the “Transition” value to the type of transition that you want to use. The transition is what effect will occur when one image changes to another. Experiment with different transitions to find what you like best.
