Creating Slideshows

Slideshows are a great way to showcase your favorite photos to your friends and family. Mylio has two ways to create slideshows, automatic slides and manual slideshows.

Creating an automatic slideshow

Creating an automatic slideshow in Mylio allows you to quickly display a folder or album full of photos. You can even customize them to make them look just how you want.

  1. Open Mylio and open the folder or album you would like to make a slideshow from.

    Note that Mylio will only play slideshows for a folder of photos, not a parent folder to other folders.
  2. Navigate to and select the view menu.
  3. Select ‘Play Slideshow’.Mylio Desktop Play Slideshow

    1. Slide Duration – How many seconds before the next slide is played
    2. Transition – Which style of transition would you like between slides
    3. Transition Duration – How long should the transition take place
    4. Shuffle – Shuffle the photos in the album/folder
    5. Show Title and Caption – Display the photo’s file and caption information during the slideshow.
  5. Once you’re ready, select play to see your slideshow. A play bar will be shown at the bottom when the mouse is moved or touch screen tapped. Here you can go to the next or previous photo, pause the slideshow, or even adjust the settings above.
