Audio and Video Slideshow - iPhoto

I've been trying to determine the easiest way to set up a 'talking photo'.  The Mac offers a quick way to do this within iPhoto, by creating a simple slideshow.  You can select as many photos from an album, event or faces to include in your slideshow.

You can edit your slideshow to reorder your photos, add transitions, music or audio to the slideshow.

Once you have edited the slideshow to your liking, click on the + button in the bottom left corner of iPhoto window and then select 'Slideshow' in dialog box that appears.  Type in a name for your slideshow, click create.

You can export your slideshow in various formats for using on your iPhone, youtube, mobileme, etc.  Click on the 'export' button in the lower right hand corner of iPhoto window.  Then select the options for format and click on export.

I could then post to flickr, where users can click on the link below to view the finished product:

Or, I could: After creating slideshow using iPhoto  and exporting as m4v (mobile format), I needed to convert the m4v movie file to 3qp format (using Quicktime Player 7) to load onto one of my test sites.  I then took the share or embed code from that site to reference on this blog and show the finished slideshow.
