  • Making a slideshow on Mac

    Yo Richard!!

    I got this from another forum, but can't find an answer.

    PSE 2, Macintosh 10.2.8

    File>Automation Tools>PDF Slideshow

    You would expect the images to show up in the slide show in some order related to their names, the order they are selected in, creation date or SOMETHING that is at least predictable.

    The slideshow is created and works fine BUT, the images show up in some random order that makes no sense.

    In the dialog box, it is possible to drag the images around and place them in the correct order, but this should not be necessary and is a pain if you have many images.

    ?? There must be a "hidden" action or something that produces the slideshow, can it be located and tweaked??

    Curious minds want to know. Apparently this works fine under Windows.

    I could use iPhoto, but iPhoto is one of the least user friendly apps I've ever seen!!

    Thanks, Margaret

    The solution is perhaps a little easier than tweaking anything. When you load up the images by selecting them during the browse stage, you can re-order them in the list any way you want by clicking and dragging the items. Elements creates the pages for the resulting multi-page PDF from the top of the list down.

      Thanks Richard, I was hoping that there was a way for the images to stay in the order they are selected rather than having to move them around later.

      Having to move the images to the proper order still beats any other slideshow creation app that I've tried.

      Take care, Margaret

        I just found a "feature" in OSX Jaguar that has me jumping for joy.....

        It has always irked me that there was no easy way to see which of those hundreds of digital camera dump or scanned images was the one I wanted without opening it in PS or something first.

        Not seeing SOME images
        by mikajomc
        Recently I noticed I couldn't see someone's image they had posted. I commented on it in that thread. It turns out others could see it just fine. And I saw it just fine briefly. Then a few minutes later it was gone. There is nothing there that even shows an image should be there.
        here's the thread...

        Does anyone use iPhoto??

        I've been using it to catalogue my photos and I'm wondering if I can have another "library" I'd like to have separate libraries for work and family and so on.

        I've grouped them into albums within the library, but with 1000+ photos already,...

        Image numbering??
        by Suzanna
        I am processing my first wedding with the 10D and software that came with it.

        My current problem is the order of the over 600 images.

        The images were in one order and then totally out of order after the transfer to Elements 2.0.

        I manually changed the number,...

        by artmaker
        Hi you pros you.

        I've discovered photoshops automated web gallery long ago. I use it when I have too many photos to upload and write code for by hand. This is a handy easy tool. BUT! It seems to have limits and I bet there are ways around them IF I knew. So... time to post a few...
