Set slide and transition duration

The playback settings don’t apply to exported PDF slideshows. The slide duration and fade transition are fixed in PDF slideshows.

  • In the Playback panel of the Slideshow module, make sure that Slide Duration is selected. Then, adjust the sliders or enter a value for the following options:

    Slide Length

    Sets the time (in seconds) that each photo is displayed.

    Crossfades

    Sets the time (in seconds) of the fade transition between slides.

  • To create a transitional fade to a solid color between slides, select the Fades Color option, and then click the color box and choose a color from the pop-up window.

Add beginning and ending slides

You can add a solid-colored slide at the beginning and end of your slide show for a gradual transition into and out of the presentation. You can display your identity plate on these slides.

  1. In the Titles panel of the Slideshow module, select the Intro Screen and Ending Screen options.
  2. For each type of slide, specify the following options:

    • Click the color box to specify a slide color from the pop-up window.

    • Select Add Identity Plate to display your identity plate on the slide. By default, the identity plate is white.

    • To change the color of the identity plate, select Override Color and then click the color box and choose a new color from the pop-up window.

    • To adjust the size of the identity plate, drag the Scale slider or type in a value.

Play music with a slideshow

Lightroom Classic can play any .mp3, .m4a, or .m4b music file as a soundtrack to a slideshow. Music plays as the slideshow is viewed from within Lightroom Classic or exported as a video. Music does not play in exported PDF slideshows.

  1. In the Music panel of the Slideshow module, click Add Music and then navigate to the music file you want to use.

  2. You can now add up to 10 music tracks to slideshows. The tracks play sequentially in the order that you choose. You can add, reorder, or remove the tracks in the Music panel.

  3. (Optional) Click Fit To Music in the Playback panel to adjust the duration of the slideshow to the length of the audio track.

  4. (Optional) Click Sync Slide to Music in the Playback panel to automatically synchronize slide transitions to music.

Preview a slide show

You can preview a slideshow as you build it in the Slide Editor view.

  1. Use the controls in the toolbar to stop , display the previous slide , display the next slide , or play/pause  the slideshow.

Export a slideshow

Export a slideshow as PDF

You can export a slideshow as a PDF file so that you can view it on other computers. PDF slideshow transitions work when viewed using Adobe Acrobat or the free Adobe Reader. Exported PDF slideshows don’t include music, randomized images, or the duration settings you specify in Lightroom Classic.

  1. In the Slideshow module, click Export PDF on the lower left.
  2. In the Export Slideshow To PDF dialog box, type a name for the slideshow in the File Name (Windows) or Save As (Mac OS) box.

  3. Navigate to and select a location to save the PDF file.

  4. Set the following options:

    Quality

    Renders each slide at a specified JPEG quality setting. Lower quality slides yield a smaller slide show file size. Drag the Quality slider or enter a numeric value from 0 to 100 (with 100 representing the highest quality, and 0 representing the lowest).

    Note: Photos are embedded with sRGB profiles.

    Width and Height

    Specify the pixel dimensions for the slideshow. Lightroom Classic resizes the slides to fit within the dimensions without cropping or changing the slide’s aspect ratio. The pixel dimensions of your computer display are the default size.

    Common Sizes

    Specifies common dimensions for a slideshow, such as 640 x 480, and enters those values in the Width and Height fields. Screen applies the dimensions of your display.

    Automatically Show Full Screen

    Displays slides at the full size of the screen that the slideshow is displayed on. The full-screen option works when the slideshow is played in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

  5. Click Save (Windows) or Export (Mac OS).

Export a slideshow as JPEGs

You can export a slideshow as a series of JPEG files that you can share with clients or other people. Each JPEG file includes the slide’s layout, background, and cell options. No transitions or playback options are exported.

  1. In the Slideshow module, press Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) and then click the Export JPEG button on the lower left.
  2. In the Export Slideshow To JPEGs dialog box, type a name for the slideshow in the File Name (Windows) or Save As (Mac OS) box. The name is used for a folder that contains the JPEG images. The JPEG images use the filename you specify plus a sequence number and the .jpeg filename extension.

  3. Navigate to and select a location to save the folder that contains the JPEG images.
  4. Set the following options:

    Quality

    Renders each JPEG at a specified quality setting. Lower-quality images yields a smaller file size. Drag the Quality slider or enter a numeric value from 0 to 100 (with 100 representing the highest quality, and 0 representing the lowest).

    Note: Photos are embedded with sRGB profiles.

    Width and Height

    Specifies the pixel dimensions for the exported JPEG files. Lightroom Classic resizes the slides to fit within the dimensions without cropping or changing the slides’ aspect ratio. The pixel dimensions of your computer display are the default size.

    Common Sizes

    Specifies common dimensions for the files, such as 640 x 480, and enters those values in the Width and Height fields. Screen applies the dimensions of your display.

  5. Click Save (Windows) or Export (Mac OS).

Export a slideshow as video

You can export a slideshow as a video file that you can watch on other computers. Lightroom Classic saves video slideshows as H.264 MPEG-4 files complete with slide layout, soundtrack, and other playback options. The exported video is compatible with Adobe Media Player, Apple Quicktime, and Windows Media Player 12.

  1. In the Slideshow module, click Export Video on the lower left.
