How to Create a Slideshow in Premiere Pro CS 5.5

A lot of people have been asking how to create slideshows / montages in Premiere Pro quickly.   Mike explains in this tutorial how to change the duration of your photos so they sync up with the length of your music.    By changing a few settings in the general preferences in Premiere Pro, you’re able to conveniently change the duration of your photos, video and audio transitions. Mike also shows us how to use some simple techniques on the timeline to help save us time when adding transitions to our video clips.

One thing you’ll want to be sure is that all of your photos are the exact same resolution, otherwise this will delay the processing in creating your slideshow quickly.  Once this is done, Mike shows us how to add digital motion to our photos. You are then able to copy and paste the motion to multiple clips with only a few mouse clicks.

Adobe Premiere Pro has given us many shortcut abilities which in turn saves us time, therefore saves us money.
