Features of the Photoshop Elements Slide Show editor

Though the Slide Show editor may at first seem a little complex, having all the controls in one place certainly means that you can create great multimedia presentations easily and efficiently. The following key features are included in the editor (see Figure 46.3):

Automatic editing: Rotate, size, change to sepia, black and white or back to color and apply Smart Fix and Red Eye Fix to your photos without leaving the Slide Show editor. Click the Preview image to display the Edit options in the Properties palette.

Styled text: Select from a range of text styles with click, drag and drop convenience. Add graphics: The Slide Show editor now includes a variety of clip art that can be added to your presentations. Double-click or click-drag to place a selected graphic onto the current slide. Transitions: Add individual transitions between slides by clicking the area in the middle of the slides in the storyboard and then selecting the transition type from those listed in the Properties pane.

Pan and Zoom: Add movement to your still pictures by panning across or zooming into your photos. Simply select the slide in the storyboard and then check the Enable Pan & Zoom option in the Properties pane. Click on the left thumbnail (Start) and set the starting marquee's (green) size and position, then switch to the right thumbnail and adjust the ending marquee's (red) size and position. Quick Reorder: This new sequencing screen enables you to quickly and easily adjust the position of any one photo in the presentation sequence using click and drag. Music and narration: Add music and extra audio to the show using the Add Media button and incorporate narration using the built-in slide show recorder.
