Here is a novel idea... Allow an unlimited number of songs to be added to a slideshow within Lightroom.What a completely useless feature if the music can’t even cover the length of the slideshow your working on. Come on developers... this is remedial stuff and should be a no brainer. If I have a 41 minute slide show... I should be able to add 41 minutes of music. Duh. Big FAIL

I believe Lr only allows you to add 10 music files to a slideshow, but I do not believe there is a limit to the length of that music.

Assuming I've got that right, a workaround would be to merge some/all of your music files together into another file using a sound editing app and then add that combined file to the Lr slideshow.

Thanks Tom - appreciate the suggestion and yeah figured this out also. But... wouldnt it be better to have the issue fixed so one wouldnt have to do all that extra work? Work smarter/faster, not longer. Seems like a logical and easy fix. Shouldnt have to switch to another application. If your gonna include the feature in the software, then do it right. :)
