Course Overview Welcome to this course, where we're going to cover everything you need to know about the slideshow module inside of Lightroom. We'll look at ways that we can build slideshows, but moreover, and probably more importantly, how we can customize these slideshows to best suit our needs. We'll take a look at different layout options, how to work with identity plates, text overlays, working with background music, and so much more. Throughout the next 30 minutes, we're going to take a look at everything that Lightroom has to offer so you can build the best slideshows possible.
Working with the Slideshow Module Creating slideshows in Adobe Lightroom couldn't be easier. We're going to focus the majority of our time in the slideshow module, but before we do that I just want to show you that you can quickly and easily create a slideshow from any module. All you have to do is make sure that you have the right folder or collection selected and once you do, you can come up to the Window menu and under the Window menu you can choose Impromptu Slideshow. The keyboard shortcut is Command + Return on a Mac. It would be Control + Enter on the Windows side. When you do that, previews will be built and then you'll be sent directly into a full-screen slideshow presentation. To exit out of the presentation, simply press the Escape key on your keyboard. So the Impromptu Slideshow option allows you to quickly and easily enter a slideshow without any thought at all. Of course you probably want more control over your slideshows and you can have that control in the slideshow module, which we'll take a look at next.
