Hi guys. I'm just learning how to create a slideshow in Photoshop CC. I found quite good tutorial and it's not that difficult at all but.. I know that in timeline I have few options to fade one image into another to make nice transmission. Simply by dragging fade tool into the shot, right. There are few options; fade with black, fade with white and fade with colour are all great but what is CROSS FADE tool and why I can't apply it the same way just by dragging it down where I want it?
I'd appreciate any help!

Cross fade means it will fade from one clip to another directly; the first fades directly into the second clip. You can add it by dragging and dropping to the split like the rest. Be sure the duration is set long enough.

This doesn't work for me. I drag and I drop but no crossfade appears. I'm attempting to crossfade from a video layer to an image layer.... very frustrating

I am creating a slideshow with stills only and I occasionally find one that I cannot apply a crossfade to.

All stills must be in same track. Than try it cross in section between two photos.
