Lightroom Presets

Monday Presets – Holiday Slideshows

In the spirit of the holidays I’m switching gears this week to a holiday preset for the Slideshow module. I’m sure plenty of you will be taking photos during the holidays. Naturally, your family expects to see these photos right away. OK, they want them in 5 minutes right? Well, once you’ve imported the photo, jump over to the Slideshow module and show ’em off in style. Step 1) Download these two backgrounds and place them on your desktop. Step 2) Position your Lightroom window in a way so you can see both Lightroom and the desktop. Step 3) Turn on the Background Image option in the Slideshow module. Then drag the background over the little thumbnail area on that panel. It’ll pop up as a background image for your slideshow. Try resizing your actual photo as well so you can see more of the background if you want. It’ll add that extra bit of holiday spirit as your family, friends, or clients look at the photos. Enjoy!
