5.1. Adjusting timing

There are three main methods for adjusting the timing of your images: slider timing, in-point timing and drag-and-drop timing.

Slider timing

Slider editing is the most common method. Simply click and drag the slide markers between images to adjust the duration of the images on either side (moving the slider will cause one image to display for a longer length of time, while the other will display for a shorter length of time).


Use the slider to the upper right of the timeline if you need to magnify the timeline to make timing changes easier.


Drag-and-drop timing

Drag-and-drop timing only affects one image at a time and is extremely useful when adding an image to an existing slide show. With the "SLIDES" tab selected, click and drag the image from the thumbnail area to the timeline and drop it into place.  Here's a small screencast demo of drag-and-drop timing.


In point timing

You can also enter the point in time (in seconds) that you would like an image to appear. To do this, click the "SLIDE INFO" tab, then the "DETAILS" tab. Then type the time into the "In point" text box. After entering your new in point, an "APPLY" button will appear. Click the "APPLY" button to set the new timing for the image.


Other timing options

If you'd like to spread some or all of the images evenly across the timeline, you can also choose "Spread images equally" or "Spread remaining images equally" from the "Tools" menu.


Length of slide show

The length of a slide show is determined by the length of the audio track. For information on replacing the audio track, click here.
