Lightroom: Ability to change duration of title slide in automated slide show timed to music.

I’m creating a memorial slideshow for my cousin’s funeral with 100-photos set to 6 1⁄2-minutes of music.  The timing of the photo slides is fine, but I wish I could extend the duration of the title slide so people have more time to read his name, birth and death dates. Customer service tells me the only option is to use the manual mode in the playback, but this will not be possible since the memorial slideshow will be playing in an automated loop.  Please add the ability to set custom durations for individual slides, especially the title slide.

I don't know how to extend the time, but a workaround might be to insert an exact copy of the title slide immediately after the first - giving you two identical slides in a row.

There would be a transition between the two title slides, but the time-on-screen for the information would be doubled.

I hope that someone else has a better solution than this.

Thanks for your suggestion.  I tried that and it looked pretty weird. Since my intro and ending slide are the same, the duration is a little better as the slideshow ends and begins to repeat because the duration of the two slides merge.

It sounds as though there are separate blocks of information: His full name; his birth date; his date of death; his place of death. This could be on two or three slides, each one providing additional information in a dignified way.
