Hi, New user here. I have a photo scanning and organizing business and after 5 years in business I have my first request for a celebration of life slideshow. I have gotten all of slides completed and I'm hoping someone knows how to do this: Most of the slides I want to show for 2.5 seconds and some key slides I'd like to have shown for 8 seconds...do you know how to do this? Yes, it can be done manually but that's alot for 275 slides. Any suggestions appreciated.

Donna -

Are any of those slides contiguous that you want to change to 8 sec? If so, click and select the first slide in that "run," then shift-click the last in that same set, and then highlight the slide time in any one of those contiguous slides and change it to 8 sec. The other selected slides will also change to that new duration.

Assuming that you have all 250 slides set to 2.5 seconds ... you can then select the first slide you want to make 8 seconds, then scroll through the show and whenever you see another slide you want to make 8 seconds just CTRL-Left Click with your mouse to select each of the other slides.  All of the non-contiguous slides you have selected that way should be highlighted.  Then change the slide time on any one of those and all will change to the new length.
