When it comes to showing off your pictures and movies, nothing beats a great slideshow, and the ones you can craft in Photos for Mac are gorgeous. You can also export a saved slideshow project as a movie in order to share it with others.
However, the way you share exported slideshow movies depends on the capability of your recipient. Do they have a computer? Do they have an Apple TV? Do they have a DVD or Blu-ray video player? Will you be there in person with an iOS device? In this column, you’ll learn strategies for each of these situations.
How to export a saved slideshow as a movie
Once you finish crafting a saved slideshow—made by choosing File > Create Slideshow or by clicking the + icon and choosing Slideshow—you can export it in .m4v format in a variety of sizes. If you’re in Projects view and the slideshow is open, click Export at the upper right of Photos’ toolbar to get the party started.
