Using Music with iPhoto Slideshow

I can not access my music library when creating a slideshow. All I get is the default cheezy guitar music. Is there an easy answer to this? Thanks

Can you access your music in other apps? iMovie, for instance?
Regards

  • Since upgrading to OSx 10.9, I cannot place my music for iPhoto slideshows.  The only music that works is the Sample and Theme music that comes with iPhoto.  Any idea of what to do about this problem?

    In iTunes go File -> Library -> Organise Library -> Reorganise Library.
    Then quit and restart iPhoto.
    Credit to user keysandfood who figured that one out.

    This category is for iPod shuffle.  Is that the type of iPod you have, because your description of the problem does not sound like it's about a shuffle?  If it's not a shuffle, what is the iPod model...?
    There is music there and I can play it connected to laptop.
    Are you doing the playing using the iPod, or are you playing the music using iTunes on the laptop?
    All mucis icons read "No music" and this is not correct
    Do these icons with "No music" appear on the laptop's screen, or on the iPod's screen

  • I have a MacBook Air and recently downloaded the new operating system. Since that time, I am no longer able to access my personal ITunes library to add music to IPhoto slideshows.  I put I tunes library on my desktop, as suggested. How do I drag it?

    I have a MacBook Air and recently downloaded the new operating system, 10.10 OSX Yosemite. Since that time, I am no longer able to access my personal ITunes library to add music to IPhoto slideshows.  I put I tunes library on my desktop, as suggested. How do I drag it to the I Photo slideshow?

    That crash appears to be casued by the Facebook plug-in.
    Create a new account (systempreferences -> accounts or Users & Groups on 10.7 and 10.8), make a new Library in that account, import some shots  and see if the problem is repeated there. If it is, then a re-install of the app might be indicated. If it's not, then it's likely the app is okay and the problem is something in the main account.

  • I am having difficulties with iPhoto slideshow.  The slide show stops in the middle of a presentation and the system crashes.  I must power off to exit the app and restart my MacBook pro.

    Wow. Okay...
    I'll let the real veterans in this forum tackle your issues one after the other. But, I can tell you, all will be well.
    My only comment would be re: your computer specs:

    To be completely honest, FCPX is a RAM hog. It just is. But, RAM is relatively cheap, and the pay-off is good.
    4GB is right on the edge, IMHO. 16G is ideal.
    I wish you luck, hang in there, and standby for more help.

  • Is there a way to edit music from itunes to use in an iphoto slideshow

    I would like to use a section of a song for a slideshow I am making, but only want to use part of the song. Is there a way to edit the song? If so, how do I do this?

    Christine:
    Welcome to the Apple Discussions. Not with iTunes or iPhoto. You can edit a track in iTunes to play only a selected portion but that editing does not carry over to use in iPhoto.
    You can use a 3rd party audio editor like Amadeus Pro to select the portion of the track you want to use and create a new file with it. Import the new file into iTunes and use in iPhoto. Some users have suggested using Garageband if you've installed it. It takes up too much disk space for me and I prefer using Amadeus Pro.
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Music with new slideshow feature in iphoto 6

    First of all where did the old feature of clicking play for a quick view of your pictures go? Secondly when I create a slideshow the music (itunes icon) won't let me select songs from my itunes if they are in a folder--if I click on recently added or even library --gone is the ability to then chose a song from that folder?
    any ideas?
    thanks

    It's been replaced with the Play button at the bottom
    of the Organize/thumbnail window. It allows you to
    play a slideshow, with the slideshow options, of any
    photos you've selected without creating a slideshow.
    It's the old quick play button on steroids.
    blockquote align="left">
    Part of my question has been answered. I just made my iphoto screen bigger and voila --podcasts and play button appear--so that is solved --thank you
    However I still can't select the song I want to play with a slideshow. If I'm in settings and I go to music and click on the library folder in the list it gives it doesn't then show me all of my songs? If i click play it will play the first song in my library?
    thanks for your time

  • ITunes No Longer Working With iPhoto Slideshow

    I'm not certain, but as I can no longer play music from my iTunes Library along with an iPhoto Slideshow, I think this is related to the new 7.7 iTunes update.
    My iPhoto by the way, is the last version - 6.0.6.
    Has anyone else noticed a new-found inability to have songs in your iTunes Library accompany an iPhoto Slideshow? And better still - how can this be fixed?
    Thanks kindly,
    john

    I just discovered that after the iTunes update and the Lion update, my iTunes wouldn't update anything except what was in the library already.  New songs, apps, movies all equaled bupkiss.  I went into advanced settings and saw that my library location was blank.  I'm using an external drive for my music.  So there's a bug, since it would play everything thing in the library but was unsure where the library was so that it could write to it.  I just relocated my media drive and now sharing and updating the library works fine. 

  • Sharing music with iphoto, iDVD, etc

    I am having no luck sharing a playlist with iPhoto or iDVD. When I go to "SOURCE" in iPhoto slideshow and music, there are no selections. I have follwed the suggestions in HELP but still no go. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I too am attempting to coble together a "whole house" music library.
    Here is what I have had moderate success with.
    I use an Airport Extreme Router and have a USB hard drive plugged directly into it. The Airport Extreme allows that drive to be used as a "Network" drive that can be setup to be accessed by any of your computers that use that router.
    Next, I moved my iTunes music folder to that hard drive.
    Finally, you go into iTunes preferences and tell it that you want to use the iTunes Music folder that is located on your "Networked" drive.
    This works pretty good but it's not bullet proof. I currently have 2 Macs that access this library and I'm pretty sure my wife's PC could access it as well for her copy of iTunes but she hasn't taken the time to sit down and figure out the settings.
    So far, the main failure point is that the iTunes software seems to randomly decide it is going to reset which music folder it is going to access and you have to go back into the preferences and tell it (again!) to use the folder on the network drive. This is especially annoying with my Macbook. It accesses the router wirelessly and EVERY time I close the Macbook it resets which folder it want to access.

  • Can't put music with a slideshow...

    Alright . . . Using iPhoto 08 version 7.1.4. I am attempting to make a new slideshow, but when I attempt to open the 'Music' option, nothing happens. Old slideshows that I have made will play with the assigned music, and the new one will use that annoying default tune. But alas, I cannot open the music option for any of my slideshows. Help!
    (I recently updated iPhoto - aside from that I don't know what might be causing the problem. I have tried restarting my computer, but come up against the same problem.

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions. First try deleting the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your User/Library/Preferences folder and try again.
    When you click on the music pane do you see the iPhoto Library icon? If you only see the folder with the default audio look for a small dimple in the horizontal frame and drag downward.

It's compatible with iPhoto 6 and 7 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. Just put the application in the Dock and click on it whenever you want to backup the dB file. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
    Note: There now an Automator backup application for iPhoto 5 that will work with Tiger or Leopard.

  • Itunes with iphoto slideshow

    Having produced a slideshow with iphoto I am trying to set a song with the slideshow. I click 'music' and the itunes folder shows up but I can only select from a playlist rather than the library of individual songs. I know that I could do this in the past but can't figure out how I did it. I have Iphoto 6.06 and itunes 7.32

    You can easily create a slide show with music of your choice using the freeware Mike's Thumbnailer @ http://homepage.mac.com/mdewalt/iWeb/Site/Thumb-Applications.html

  • No sound with iPhoto slideshow since Mavericks

    Since the update to Mavericks I have no sound anymore during the slide shows I made with iPhoto.
    Can anyone tell me why this is? iTunes works normally and I can play music also with AppleTV.
    Thanks.

    Hiya,
    Had a quick look and found this thread, it seems to resolve the issue (hopefully!).
    I haven't tried viewing slideshows in my iTunes yet, hopefully I'll be OK:)

  • ITunes music for iPhoto Slideshow

    Not able to use files from iTunes for iPhoto Slideshow.  Only SAMPLE MUSIC.  This is the message that I get > iTunes The song "The Sad Cafe" could not be used because the original file could not be located.

    Have you checked, if the song plays correctly, when you try to play the song "The Sad Cafe" in iTunes? If you see an exclamation point besides the song, you need to reconnect that dead track to the original file. When you try to playy the song, iTunes should prompt you for the location of the song. Use the File Chooser window, that will pop up, to search for the file and select it.
    Then try again to use the song in your slideshow.

  • I need help with iPhoto slideshow.  I can't "save" changes. Particularly the rotate feature.  I rotate a photo 90 degrees... and the next time I play it...it's back to original.  Sideways!  Very frustrating.

    How do I save changes on iPhoto slideshow.  I rotate a photo... then it reverts back to original (sideways) next time it plays.

    With the amount of information you've provided it's impossible to offer a solution.  We can't see your computer so we need to know the details of your problem and setup, i.e.:
    what version of iPhoto are you using?
    what system version are you running?
    is your slideshow from an album or from the slideshow mode?
    what theme are you using?
    what fixes have you tried?
    where is your library located?
    did you apply any updates or upgrades just prior to the problem occurring?
    are you running a "managed" or "referenced" library?
    what type of Mac?
    how much free space on your boot drive?

  • Using Photoshop with Iphoto

    I've set the editing preference to use photoshop as the editor and when I click on a photo and then the edit icon, it launches photoshop but doesn't open the picture in photoshop. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    David

    Also, after you get the problem solved, this may be of some help:
    Using Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements) as Your Editor of Choice in iPhoto.
    1 - select Photoshop as your editor of choice in iPhoto's General Preference Section's under the "Edit photo:" menu.
    2 - double click on the thumbnail in iPhoto to open it in Photoshop. When you're finished editing click on the Save button. If you immediately get the JPEG Options window make your selection (Baseline standard seems to be the most compatible jpeg format) and click on the OK button. Your done.
    3 - however, if you get the navigation window that indicates that PS wants to save it as a PS formatted file. You'll need to either select JPEG from the menu and save (top image) or click on the desktop in the Navigation window (bottom image) and save it to the desktop for importing as a new photo.
    This method will let iPhoto know that the photo has been editied and will update the thumbnail file to reflect the edit..
    If you want to use both iPhoto's editing mode and PS without having to go back and forth to the Preference pane, once you've selected PS as your editor of choice, reset the Preferences back to "Open in main window". That will let you either edit in iPhoto (double click on the thumbnail) or in PS (Control-click on the thumbnail and seledt "Edit in external editor" in the Contextual menu). This way you get the best of both worlds
