What is the best way to create a slideshow with Mac Adobe products? I need to be able to create a simple slideshow from a large quantity of my art pieces. I needs to be usable on a desktop machine, iPad or able to be placed on a website. Clients need to be able to click through the images to select what they want. There doesn't need to be any form capability but would be nice if when app was building slideshow it would show artwork titles. Some of the example artwork to be used can be seen on http://zoot.com/fine-art-gallery.html  Thanks, Ira

Lightroom's Slideshow module will create this as you describe and export it as a video which can be viewed on any platform.

Ira, I suggest using 'Export PDF Slideshow.' This will produce a much smaller file size, allow clients to easily view the artwork images for selection, and a Title can be easily added to each each slide in the PDF. First assign the artwork titles in the Library Metadata panel to each image file and then follow the below instructions to have the titles appear in the slides show:
