Adding Captions to Pictures in Your Slide Show

Click here to go to Creating a Basic Slide Show

STEP 1. Create a basic slide show. Follow steps 1-5 of the "Creating a Basic Slide Show" section above, or open an existing slide show.


STEP 2. Select a picture and add your caption. Click on the "Pictures" tab to view the picture playlist. To apply a caption to a picture, you need to select it by clicking the picture in the playlist. Now click somewhere in the area titled "Picture Caption" and begin typing. Your text will appear in the window as you type.



STEP 3. Change caption size and color. To change the size of the text in your caption, click on the little number button underneath the caption window. A drop down list will appear with different values, just select one to change your caption size. To change the caption color, click on the colored box in the lower right corner of the caption window, and select a new color from the drop down menu.

NOTE: The size of your caption will not update in the preview window. When you view your slide show using the "Start My Slide Show" button, the selected size will be used.



STEP 4. Repeat for all pictures that need captions. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have the desired number of captioned pictures. Pictures with captions already attached will have a small cartoon bubble caption indicator icon next to the picture file name in the playlist.



STEP 5. Save and play your slide show. Click on the "Save Show" button. If you haven't already done so, pick a name and select a location on your hard drive for your slide show file. When you click "Start My Slide Show", pictures that have captions applied will display with their caption in the slide show as it plays.
