Creating Slideshows

 Registration is closed for this event
In this workshop we will explore several of the more commonly available programs for creating, showing, and sharing slideshows from digital images. Tools and methods available from Adobe (Photoshop Elements, Bridge, and Lightroom) along with other slideshow-specific tools from Roxio and Photodex will be explored. We will learn direct projection from the applications, use of saved files for sharing with others who don’t have the applications and slideshows that can be shown as a standard movie DVD.

The purpose of this workshop is to help you choose a workflow and tools to produce a slideshow for:

  • Direct projection from a computer
  • Sharing a slideshow using a computer file (such as a movie or pdf file)
  • Creating a slideshow as a standard movie DVD (and keeping the image to allow easy replication).

The goal is to let you make slideshows that meets your needs more quickly and efficiently.

We will also review guidelines and best practices based on experiences by the instructor and the students.   While it is not possible to learn the advantages and disadvantages of all the various products, we will look at Adobe products (Photoshop Elements, Bridge, and Lightroom) along with the key Roxio and Photodex applications.

Attendees should bring their laptop with a selection of photos and, if possible, music selections.   Note that we will focus on the Windows rather than the Mac environment, but the learning should carry over.

This 3.5 hour workshop will fill up.  So register quickly!

Your Instructor: Barry Walton

I have been taking serious photographs for more than 30 years.  Of course, I used my Kodachrome slides and Kodak projectors for much of that time.  After switching to digital photography some eight years ago, I struggled with various methods for showing my photographs as the tools and technology improved and changed.  During my professional career (outside photography), I was quite often responsible for preparing formal presentations and bring that experience to bear on creating slideshows in our rapidly changing technological environment.  I am currently teaching Lightroom 3 through Placer School for Adults.

I am a member of Placer Arts as well as Viewpoint.  I’ve been featured in the Auburn Art Walk for the past five years and in the Auburn Art Studios Tour for the past three years.  I have shown at Lattitudes in Auburn (2010)  and am currently showing works at Veranda, Sun Real Estate, and Sunset Oaks Gallery in Auburn.  I specialize in outdoor photography from around the world.  Photographing Africa is a passion.
