Presenting Your Finished 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. 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. Now click the "Start My Slide Show" button.



STEP 3. Choose a background for your playback controls. When your slide show starts playing, you will see the "Slide Show Controls" box at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. To change the background graphic of the controls, click on the "Backgrounds" menu in the menu bar and select one from a list. If you would like your controls hidden, just click on "Hide" and they will be removed from the screen. Click anywhere on your screen to make the playback controls reappear.

In Mac OS X, the menu bar and dock are hidden during slide show playback. To make the menu bar appear, click anywhere on the "slide show controls" background. Clicking the background again will make the menu bar and dock disappear again so your slide show will not be interfered with.



STEP 4. Let the slide show play, or manually click through the images yourself. Your slide show will continue to play at your specified time intervals until the final picture is reached. Presenting your pictures yourself is also easy. First click the pause button to pause the slide show, and then click the forward or back buttons to cycle through the pictures in your slide show as you wish.
