Creating Video Slideshows In Photos

A quick and easy way to create a video slideshow with your photos is to use the built-in Slideshow function in the Photos app. You can just select some photos, stick with the defaults, and get a video to upload to YouTube or Facebook in less than a minute. Or, you can customize the theme, individual photos, text and more to create something a little more specific.

    Thank you , Gary. I was needing this many time and didn’t know how to do the slideshows in Photo. Does Photo make a collage pictures? I sure miss that.

    Pavla: Not sure what you mean by a collage. Do you mean having many pictures on one page? You could always use File, Print to make that as a PDF.

    Gary, it would be helpful if you could do a iPad version of creating a video from photos in an album on iOS devices. Whilst I can do such a slideshow, is there a way to put titles on the individual photos? Also, the music I choose from my iTunes library can be the sountrack for the slideshow, but can I attach different tunes to different slideshows from different albums? At present the same music applies to all slideshows. Thanks

    Allan: On the iPad the best way to create custom slideshow videos is to use iMovie or Keynote. That’s what I would do. While you can play basic slideshows on Photos for iPad, you can’t create a Slideshow “project” like I show here in this tutorial.

    If a video slideshow is created in Photos on a Mac and saved to Photos iCloud where all my photos get stored, would it then be accessible on iPad or iPhone to use as an Instagram post?

    Richard: If you saved the video file to your iCloud Photos library then it should be available wherever you can access your iCloud Photos library. So yes, it should work.

    Best I’ve seen on Photo shows…I relied on old iPhoto. So now after watching this I can do all that in the newer Photos app. One question remains. I like to apply the Ken Burns to individual slides for emphasis. Can one still select an individual slide and apply a custom Kens Burns to an individual slide?

    Martin: Yes. I show that at about 4:40.

    How would I fit the photos? Some heads are cutoff.

    Vanessa: The photos shouldn’t be cropped, if that is what you mean. I tried using photos of all different sizes, and it always resized them to fit the whole photo. Which version of Photos are you using? Have you checked the original photos?
