IPhoto export 2 black photos in my slide show?

Its always the same 2 photos, one is 8.5M and the other is 13M.

  • Is anyone using iPhoto having a problem with the slide show using shatter where it does not let you put a title over photo?

    Is anyone using iPhoto having a problem with the slide show using shatter where it does not let you put a title over photo? It use to work but it no longer lets you place a title over the opening photo.

    Is your signature still current?(iPhoto '08, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4))    I can confirm this for iPhoto '11; Shatter will only show the text slide title between the slides. Ken Burns and Classic theme can still be set to overlay the caption and title directly over the slides.

  • Can different music be used with different set of photos in a slide show?

    Can different music be used with different set of photos in a slide show?

    Yes. The basic idea is that you make a playlist of songs and choose that to use with the slideshow, rather than any particular song. In iPhoto 11 you can do this in iPhoto. In earlier versions you do this in iTunes.
    There is a limitation. Each song will play the full way through, you can't croassfade from one to another and so on.
    Alternatives to iPhoto's slideshow include:
    iMovie, on every Mac sold.
    Others, in order of price: PhotoPresenter  $29
    PhotoToMovie  $49.95
    PulpMotion  $129
    FotoMagico $29 (Home version) ($149 Pro version, which includes PhotoPresenter)
    Final Cut Express  $199
    It's difficult to compare these apps. They have differences in capability - some are driven off templates. some aren't. Some have a wider variety of transitions. Others will have excellent audio controls. It's worth checking them out to see what meets your needs. However, there is no doubt that Final Cut Express is the most capable app of them all. You get what you pay for.

  • Can I export (burn) more than one slide show to the same DVD

    Can I export (burn) more than one slide show I created in iPhoto to the same DVD, and if yes, how?

    Yes.  If you're using iDVD export the slideshow out of iPhoto at 480p size and drag it into an open iDVD menu window, being careful to avoid any drop zones.  iDVD can handle up to 120 minutes of playing time (movies plus menus) on a single layer DVD disk.
    Follow this workflow to help assure the best qualty video DVD:
    Once you have the project as you want it save it as a disk image via the File ➙ Save as Disk Image  menu option. This will separate the encoding process from the burn process. 
    To check the encoding mount the disk image, launch DVD Player and play it.  If it plays OK with DVD Player the encoding is good.
    Then burn to disk with Disk Utility or Toast at the slowest speed available (2x-4x) to assure the best burn quality.  Always use top quality media:  Verbatim, Maxell or Taiyo Yuden DVD-R are the most recommended in these forums.

  • Vertical photos distorted in slide show

    I have 'scale photos to screen' turned off during slide show. Still, some vertical photos in my slide show, but not all, appear distorted as if they were horizontal; i.e. the horizontal dimension is stretched. When I preview the same photo, it 'reloads' and then, when I continue the slide show with that photo, it appears with the correct vertical/horizontal ratio and looks right. The photos had been rotated to be upright after import. - Anyone have any idea what's going on? I can't for the life of me figure out what causes this. I have to go through all my vertical photos and preview them, one by one, before running the slide show to avoid that some vertical slides appear distorted.

    No, video for viewing on TV is interlaced... it is shot with two fields, each shot at slightly different times, the two interlaced fields make up a frame. It is the time difference between when each frame was shot that gives the "jaggy" lines. A TV knows how to handle these fields whereas a computer monitor does not.

  • Making new photo albums and slide shows

    Is there a way to make new photo albums or slides shows on the iPad? I wish to organize photos and create slide shows while I am on the road, away from my sync computer.

    The only way you could do this would be to first delete all photos in your Saved Photos album and then add the ones you want to use in your slide show one at a time (each photo you add is placed after the one previously added). Currently, by using the iPad alone with no third party apps, the only way to add photos to the Saved Photos album is either from Safari (touch and hold an image until the "Save image" dialogue comes up) or from email. On the iPhone originally, this was where photos you took with the camera went. Without the camera, it's left a bit stranded on the iPad.
    The other "Photo Library" album is changeable only through an iTunes sync. If you put all the photos you want to use in your slideshows there, you could email them to yourself and then put them in the Saved Photos album one at a time. But that's awfully tedious and you can only have one Saved Photos album available at a time, so you'd have to do that with every slideshow you wanted. Not much use, I admit.
    Until Apple improves the photo app on the iPad, it's not at all a versatile or very useful thing.

  • How can I change the order of photos in iPhoto so I can create the slide show I want?

    How to change the order of photos in iPhoto on my iPad, so I can create the slide show I want.

    Here's what I did to generate a slide show with Ken Burns effect on the iPad...with the exact same slide order I created on the iMac.  I have iOS 5.5 and iPhoto App on New iPad, and iPhoto 11 on iMac.
    In iPhoto for the Mac, create a new Album and give it the name of your Slide Show. Drag or import the photos you want into the album.  Rearrange the order of the album photos as desired. Do this by selecting Manual Sort under View/Sort Photos or simply start dragging thumbnails to the places you want them (the sort method will automatically change to Manual). 
    When you have the order you want, shut down iPhoto on the Mac to make sure iPhoto's database gets updated with the new photos and their order. 
    Restart iPhoto and go to File/Export on the top menu.  Select File Export at the top left of the Export window. Set JPEG quality to Max, Size to Full Size, and File Name to Album Name and Number.  Set Subfolder Format to None.
    Click Export to bring up what looks like the Finder.  Create an empty folder on your hard drive under Pictures and give it the name of your slide show. Click on the new folder and then click OK at the bottom right of the Finder-like window.  The new folder will contain JPEG files with file names in the form, Album Name - 001.jpeg, Album Name - 002.jpeg, etc.  There will also be an iPOD Photo Cache folder.  Click at the top of the Name column to order files by file name.  001 will be your first slide, 002 your second, etc.
    Now start up iTunes. You are going to force the Mac to sync these new photos with the iPad.  Click on your iPad device in the list at the left.  Now click on the Photo button at top right. Make sure the Sync Photos check box at top is checked, then select Choose Folder... from the list at right.  In the Finder-like window that opens, select the folder where your slides are.  Make sure that All Folders is checked, then select Open at the bottom right.
    Now click Sync at bottom right.  The slides will be copied to your iPad.  Both the Photos app and the iPhoto app will properly handle the slide order, and the Ken Burns effect is available using the iPhoto app.
    I ran across this problem in preparing a Ken Burns slide show for a wedding.  Drove me nuts for a week why the order changes when syncing an iPhoto album from iMac to iPad.  But this worked and gave me several options.  I plan to use the digital AV adapter for iPad and show slides on a large screen TV using HDMI connection from iPad to TV.  TV essentially acts as an external monitor for the iPad.
    Hope this helps!

  • Hi, I made a slide show with music from 81 photos I downloaded from my camera.  I would like to burn these to a blank DVD, but there appears to be no utility for export to a DVD for slide shows.  Help.  I want to distribute DVD copies to classmates

    Hi, I made a slide show with music from 81 photos I downloaded to iphoto from my camera.  I would like to burn the slide show to DVD, but can't make this happen.  How do I go about doing this? 

    If the DVD is to play on a DVD Player, then Share -> Send to iDVD as iDVD is the only app that creates the correct file structure and format for this purpose.
    If the DVD is just to hold the file, then Export to the desktop and burn with the Finder.

  • Apple TV photo order in Slide Show

    There are several posts relating to the order that photos are shown on Apple TV Slide Show. The problem is that when photos are moved via iTunes Home Sharing from iPhoto or another folder, the exact order is lost when they arrive at the Apple TV. Many of the previous posts suggest causes and fixes, yet NONE of them really solve the problem. So, I have started this new post to see if somewhere out there there is an answer. When photos are arranged in a particular order (ideally by file name, which makes the most sense and is easiest to work with), either in iPhoto or in another folder, they should STAY in that order for presentation as a Slide Show on Apple TV. I have tried several ways to export the photos; none of them achieve the desired result - some photos always get out of order, even with as few as 10 photos. This really makes Apple TV unacceptable for Slide Shows. Who wants to watch a slide show that keeps jumping around by date or by place or whatever?
    To date, I am using a second generation Apple TV, iPhoto 9 ver 8.1.2, iTunes, on a MacBook Pro OS 10.9.5.
    Is there a solution that works consistently? If not, or unless I have missed something, why hasn't Apple addressed this?

    I have the exact same issue and I have tried everything....
    It really *****. It must be a config or similar issue, as there's not many postings on this....anyone with a cure? Let me know!

  • IPhoto 9 video playback shuttery in slide show but ok otherwise.

    I'm using iPhoto 09 (version 8.1.2) on a brand new MacBook pro 2.66ghz running Snow Leapord 10.6.4. In my iPhoto events I have photos and videos imported from my Samsung pl150.
    If I play one of the videos in iPhoto by just clicking on it launches Qucktime and plays the video fine. However, if I run a slide show of the same event containing the same video it is stuttery.
    Anyone any ideas how I can get videos to show in slideshow without stuttering?

    That's correct. See my first post in this thread.
    iPhoto '11 uses the Quicktime X frameworks provided by Snow Leopard, so the GPU does the decoding. iPhoto '09 does not, it came out before Snow Leopard so didn't have that option.
    This is why you must have Snow Leopard to install iLife '11. I now experience nice smooth playback during slideshows & also directly inside iPhoto (it used to open in the external Quicktime X player when double clicked).
    I highly recommend anyone with a 9400m gpu or later & who works with HD h.264 get iLife '11.
    According to the link below, nearly all Macs with Snow Leopard will see an improvement during HD playback. But its the ones with 9400m and later GPUs that get the best increase.

  • Iphoto won't play videos in slide show

    I've transferred a slideshow from an old macbook to a new macbook pro and for some reason the movie clips in the slideshow will no longer play.  Anyone else have this problem?  Anyone know of a solution?

    I have the exact same problem.  I upgraded from an old Core 2 Duo Macbook Pro to a new intel i7 Macbook Pro.  I did a migration using Time Machine and until now, everything seems to have transferred flawlessly.  However, any iPhoto slideshows with video clips now hang at the video clip and lock up the machine.  The slide shows still run fine on the old macbook prog.
    As far as the videos on the new mac, they will run fine using finder/quicktime.  They will run individually when selected in iPhoto.  However, they will cause the mac to freeze if I try and run a slide show or export the slideshow whenever it reaches the first video clip.
    I'm guessing its some kind of directory issue but I would like to recover the slide shows and be able to run them on this new, more powerful machine rather than created exported videos on the old mac or attempt to recreate the slideshows from scratch on the new machine.
    Any help would be appreciated and I'll try and use more than one syllable.

  • How to properly stitch together many nearly identical photos into a slide show.

    I'm not too sure if Final Cut Pro has what I need to complete the following question, but I'd like to ask the group any way. If not, then maybe you can steer me into the right direction.
    I just started taking dozens of weekly photos of the same exact view from one location in our town. My final goal is to eventually put one shot from each of my weekly shoots into a time-lapse slide show/video. I have a dominant landmark in each of the photos, and that landmark is "almost" in the same identical location within each of my photos. However, it's not perfect enough. I'd like to edit each photo so that the landmarks within each photo are located as close to the same location within each photo. This will make for a much smoother slide show in the end.
    I do have Final Cut Pro, Aperture, and iPhoto. I have iPhoto pretty much mastered, but have yet to put much time into FCP and Aperture. iPhoto offers no type of grid to use as far as cropping photos. Straightening yes...but for cropping...no.
    Would anyone happen to know how I can create this slide show with the best results?
    Again, each photo taken is being taken of the same landscape from the same location. However, I'd like to be able to stitch (possibly a hundred, or more) photos together to make as smooth a slide show as possible.
    Thanks in advance, Gramps.

    What version of iPhoto?
    Are you running a Managed or a Referenced Library?
    A Managed Library, is the default setting, and iPhoto copies files into the iPhoto Library when Importing. The files are then stored in the Library package
    A Referenced Library is when iPhoto is NOT copying the files into the iPhoto Library when importing because you made a change at iPhoto -> Preferences -> Advanced. (You unchecked the option to copy files into the Library on import) The files are then stored where ever you put them and not in the Library package. In this scenario you are responsible for the File Management.

  • Hello,  I am have problems with coruption of the photos in a slide show after burning the DVD in iDVD.  This coruption does not always appear when you preview the project.  I have slowed down the burn rate to 1X and kept the quality to professional.

    I am having a great deal of problems with Data coruption in slide shows after I have burned a DVD in iDVD.  I have changed burn rate from best to 1X with no difference in the coruption.  I have the quality set to professional with no improvement.  The size of the project is near 3.95, so it should fit on a single layer burn.  Should I use either iMovie to create the slide show or "Photo to Movie"?  Also, can anyone comment on how I preserve the highest quality picture resolution with a slide show?  If I do use iMovie or Photo to Movie,  the file size should exceed the 4.2 size so, will I have to buy new DVD's which are capable to handle the double layer burn and upto 8 GB?  What DVD's are recommended?  Any preferred brand?  Are there problems with burning with double layer?  I read on this blog of numerous problems.

    DVDs are LOW resolution by today's standards - only about 0.3 megapixels - so there is no way they your images on a TV set will look "High Definition".  See Preparing images for iDVD slideshows at http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=iDVD/7.0/en/6675.html for recommendations on image sizes to use.  Using larger images won't give you better  quality, andf in some cases, will lower you image quality because  the Quicktime resizing that occurs isn't the best.
