Presenting Or Exporting The Slideshow

When you've finished designing your slideshow, you have four presentation options:

1. Play the slideshow in Lightroom. Click the play button at the bottom of the right panel, or use the shortcut. This blacks out the display, starts the slideshow immediately and shows all the slides full screen. You can pause the slideshow by pressing the space bar. To stop the slideshow, press Esc.

Apply attributes while the slideshow plays

To apply attributes while a slideshow is playing, you can use the keyboard shortcuts for ratings (0-5), flags (P, X, U) and color labels (6-9) .

Play the slideshow on a second display

If you have a secondary display connected to your computer, you can play the slideshow there. In the Slideshow module, under the Window^Secondary Display menu, choose the option for Slideshow, or press S+Option+Shift+Enter or Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Enter.

Playback problems

If the slideshow stops playing, shows blank slides, or jumps back to the first slide at the wrong time, it's likely because large previews haven't been rendered for those photos. Lightroom 3 offers a new feature to Prepare Previews in Advance, which you enable by checking the box at the bottom of the Playback panel.

Export the slideshow as a pdf

S+Option+J or Ctrl+Alt+J

Export the slideshow as a video file

S+Shift+J or Ctrl+Shift+J

Export the slideshow as jpg files

2. Export the slideshow as a pdf file. Click the "Export pdf' button at the bottom of the left panel set. A dialog box appears, providing options for the exported file; see Figure 8-15. If you want Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Reader to auto-play the slideshow, and show it full-screen, you must enable the option for "Automatically show full screen" (or you can change these kinds of settings by editing the pdf with the full version of Acrobat). The pdF file will not contain a Soundtrack.
