He starts off by mentioning that you can use iPhoto and OS X screensavers for doing slideshows of your photos. Then states “By contrast, in Keynote you can select which images appear, how they appear and when they appear. You also have a wide range of transitions to work with and you’re not limted to using a single transition in your slideshow.”
After that, he does show a step-by-step process in using Keynote and its Inspector to design the transitions between slides and between each step of the slide.
The Steps are:
- Pick a template – Use one that includes collaged images.
- Add your photos – After doing the cover slide, drag photos from Media
- First Photo – Select first photo and open Inspector. Use Build and Move In to get started.
- Next Photo – Ditto
- Set the order – Use More Options in the Inspector Build pane
- Building out – Use the Build Out tab in Inspector
- Order adjustment – Use the More Options in the Build pane
- Continue – Do next slide
Of course, the author gives more details and uses illustrations in his tutorial.
