Slide Show view can be used to display photos for clients, facilitate group editing, or as part of a workflow to rate and tag selected photos with a full-screen preview. 


To create a slide show, navigate to Image> Slide Show or use the keyboard shortcut command-L (Mac) or control-L (Windows).


You can choose to display text and metadata variables under each slide in your slide show. You can also add transitions between slides, automatically or manually advance slides, and loop or shuffle playback. 

If you are comfortable with Photo Mechanic's keyboard shortcuts for editing, you can edit slides as they display during the slide show. In Photo Mechanic 6, you will see feedback showing the changes you made. We suggest selecting "Wait for space bar before next image" if you plan on editing slides. 

To save your slide show preferences for next time, use the lightning bolt button to save a settings Snapshot.
