yesterday i was out and shot 400 plus shots at the Paris marathon. After weeding out the bad shots i still had more shots than i would want to throw up on Flickr at once, so i thought i would give the new slide show features in Aperture 3 a go
Actually was pretty impressed... though there are some rough edges, but defiantely worth exploring
the first results are here
or here if you are Flash limited
It was very quick and easy - select the photos, make a slideshow, choose a theme, add some music and the duration is adjusted automatically. Then you can fine tune order and duration. Double click a shot and make adjustments.. all very fluid.
Someone has already commented on my use of unlicensed music....and that will always be an issue...
Only big downside is the export options that seemed a little more techy than you would find in iPhoto
If you are on a the Mac platform, Keynote is another great tool for digital presentation - great visual quality and very powerful builds and transitions
