Tonight I actually got around to checking out the slideshow capabilities in the new iPhoto.  I learned two things - the first is that you should always export the video in the largest size possible!  (The photos came out looking pretty fuzzy, and that was medium because I wasn't sure what I should pick!)  And secondly- I learned you can add video into the slideshow, but after waiting an hour and ten minutes for Youtube to upload the video, I decided it was too late, and I'd have to remember it for next time.  

I really like the slideshow option though, there are some neat templates and you can choose a song or use one of the preloaded random ones.  To test it out, I used photos from my album of Liam pictures... just because those photos are ones I don't mind watching over and over while I try to get the slideshow right!  The only thing I don't like is that as each photo ends, right before the next one pops up, the colors do this little blip thing... I can't figure out why.

that was really sweet Kris! I see what you mean about the color blip - weird, but I dont think I would have noticed it if I hadn't read about it first.

I got behind for a few days, and just caught up to your journal entries and, ack, your stat course. I wish I had been more in tune with the ebb and flow of your days to give you some encouragement when you needed it most.

Anyway, thanks for the info about video/slideshows. I was wondering how the anonymous person that built Erin's had gotten that done.

What's the music playing in the background? I love it! It's perfect for the slide show.

I love the slideshow! I went to see the Lion King with my sister, Ana, a few years ago and when I heard the song, He Lives in You, I felt like it was my brother speaking to me. We were both so moved by it.

Thanks so much for sharing!
