How To Make and Export a Slideshow On Your iPhone

You can quickly and easily made a slideshow in the Photos app, but those can't be exported to share. By using the free iMovie app from Apple, you can build a slideshow from a set of photos in minutes and then export it as video to share. You can also customize each photo with filters, cropping, movement and text. You can add music, audio and narration to the slideshow too. The basic idea works on the iPad as well.

    Gary, when you go to share it I didn’t see an email option. I guess you need to save to first? Also what’s the difference between Export, Save video and Save to files? Thanks

    There is a Mail option there. You only can see the first 5 in the video, but if I scroll over it is there. Try it. Also, try those export options and you’ll see the difference. For instance, Save Video saves to your Photos app library and Save to Files saves as a file into iCloud, Dropbox, or local files.

    Are you able to save a slideshow to a cd or dvd with iMovie? I have albums of scanned pictures from years past which I have organized chronologically and if I try to save to a cd or dvd they are all scrambled up. Thanks.

    Rose: I’m not sure what you mean. Are you looking to make a video DVD (to play in DVD players)? Or are you just looking to store the resulting video file on a CD or DVD like you would an external drive or USB Thumb drive? A slideshow is a single file, a video, so they can’t get scrambled up like a set of files could. The file themselves are probably in an order (like alphabetical) not scrambled.

    Gary, yes I’m looking to make a video to play on a dvd player.

    Rose: In that case you can build the video in iMovie and export as a regular video file. But then you need Video DVD creation software to convert it and build a DVD that works in DVD players. There are some in the Mac App Store.
