    Change color of slide title in Slideshow

    Learning to use 'Title' field in image metadata to insert captions on images in a slideshow. White seems to be the default color. This shows up poorly on slides that are light where the caption appears (moving the caption would help, but that is a global action, so moves the caption on all...

    Slideshow painfully slow and crashing

    Evidently slideshow no longer uses already built previews, so it takes a very long painfully long time to start a slideshow, especially with larger tif files. Lightroom is running on a fairly fast PC i9-12900K, with 64GB RAM, GeForce RTX(TM) 3080 Ti 12GB graphics, catalog and previews on a 2TB...

    Black Screen—Slideshow Bug?

    Sometimes my slideshows play fine; other times, I hit the Play triangle and all I get is a black screen—no music, no show. The only to way to fix it is to quit and restart Lr (without taking time to back up the catalog). Then it works fine—until it hangs again, and there's no predicting when...

    Slideshow export MP4 blurry

    Hi everyone, I have the following problem: My slideshows look very good when I play them in the Slideshow module. When I export them as mp4 1080p they are noisy and blurred. That's only since I switched to LR Classic CC, under LR6 everything was fine. Does anyone have an idea? Best, Uwe

    Slideshow module grumpy about the slideshow module

    There haven't been any serious or significant updates to the Slideshow (and Print for that matter) module for such a long time, and yet it is such an easy target as there are quick fixes that could be made. So I got to wondering whether the gripes I have are the same as the experience of...

    Ive started a slideshow (made a collection, clicked save slideshow which created a nested collection that seems to be a dup of its parent; no idea why it would want to do that). When I select that lower (lowest) level collection, should I not be able to reorder the images by dragging on the...

    Rant! Why are slideshows so different between LR desktop, web, and mobile?

    I'm new to LR. Maybe my 40 year career in a two platform mainframe/PC IT environment did not adequately prepare me for what to expect when the output goes to the internet and mobile platforms also. I expected that whatever I created on the developer's platform, ie desktop, would carry forward...
