    Saed to desktop, as mp4, but got error message when I attempted to open it: /Users/kevinmurphy1/Desktop/Error mesage 101716.jpg
    (In case that isn’t readable, the message is telling me that QuickTime can’t open the file.

    Gary, thanks for this video. I’m curious, what are the differences between doing this in iMovie vs exporting a Slideshow in Photos?

    My error — first save was not complete. Second effort worked perfectly. Sorry about the panic call.

    Law: Lots of differences. You have a lot more control in iMovie. Try them both and see.

    Noted, Gary. Thanks for the tip. I’ll try that out next time. Btw, would the file size in iMovie be much bigger compared to Photos, i.e. for the same number of photos and possibly a couple of movies?

    Law: Depends on the details. The video file size should be the same, but if you create them differently — like with more transitions and titles and such, then it could be higher. Same for compression choices you make when exporting as video.
