Tip Check the Software You Own before Buying a Slideshow Program

Many photo-editing programs and media asset databases include slideshow functions. So, before you buy new software, go into the Help menu of your current programs to see what they offer.

Figure 19-3: For precision control over the relative timing of various elements in a slideshow, advanced hobbyists and professionals use timelines, like this one in PhotoSuite (www.Roxio.com). (A) This is the timeline that defines when everything occurs in this slideshow. (B) The photos are placed in the upper track, where you can also designate how long each will remain on the screen and what the transition effects will be. (C) We have three different recorded sound narratives, which will begin to be heard at the same time as the slides that are right above them. (D) The third track holds special effects that will be applied over time to the slides above them. (E) And rolling text credits will fade in and out at certain times. (Courtesy of Roxio, Inc.)
