How to Create a Slideshow with Photoshop CC

Gary Detonnancourt

Slideshows can easily be created with Adobe Lightroom, however, you can have more options and media choices if you make your slideshows with Photoshop.  I made this set of tutorials to show you how you can use Adobe Photoshop CC to make simple slideshows with just still images or mixed media slideshows that can include animation, video and text.

How to Make a Slideshow in Photoshop CC

Here are some of the important steps in the process along with screenshots.

  • Export Images from Lightroom at 1920 x 1080
  • Photoshop:  Click File>Open
  • Open one image
  • Click Window>Timeline
  • Click create video timeline
  • Click add Media to add more images
  • Drag images around to re-order them
  • Drag the edge of images to change the length of time they will be displayed
  • Add transitions between images
  • Add animations to individual images
  • Add a black background for images that may not be 1920 x 1080
  • Add Sound and adjust sound options
  • Click the hamburger menu on the right side of the timeline > Render video (see video #2 for more information.)
