iPhoto 09 makes slideshows quick and fun

I didn’t get as much accomplished today as I hoped because I got distracted playing with the new iPhoto 09. The new version has some nifty slideshow themes so I decided to see how quickly I could put one together. Grabbed some photos from Barb’s recent trip (with her sister and niece) to NYC. Jumped on iTunes to find some appropriate music and hit the go button.

Not in a million years could I have baked this cake from scratch. And how much more fun and interesting than just fading one photo into the next. If you want to watch this 3.5 minute show, you’ll need to wait a few minutes for a pretty large file to buffer enough to watch. But it looks great on the Apple TV and if you want to go old school, we can burn DVD.

I’m telling you, this is the kind of thing that’s pulling folks to the Mac. BTW… took less than 5 min to creat the slideshow. Longer of course to render.

  1. I happened upon your blog by searching for iPhoto 09 info. Do you know if it possible to burn the themed slideshows (with music) to disc? I’ve read that you can’t. Thx!
