What specifically would you like to know?
There are four different ways to create slideshows in Premiere Elements. Which method are you asking about?
Thank you for your interest. What a coincindence! ! ! I just ordered your book, Guide to Photoshop and Elements and I am patiently waiting for it to arrive. Meanwhile, I am putting together,on Elements 11, mostly still shots. Spicificly, I would like the best way to change the length of each slide individually and collectively. Also, I have been opening new projects for practice. How can I delete them? I have several questions hoping they can wait till your book arrives. I also have Lynda on line.
There are two ways to address Still Image Duration. One is global, and applied before Import. One would determine the approximate Duration desired, go to Edit>Preferences>General>Still Duration. Then, all Stills Imported will have that Duration (as will Titles, and New Items, like Black Video).
Once that general Duration has been set, one can still, and on an Image by Image basis, click + drag on the Still Image's Head, or Tail, to adjust the Duration. When doing that, I like to have the Info Panel open and visible, to see exactly what Duration I have changed to.
PS - I think that you will love Steve's book.
