A little discussion in Lightroom Forums.net led me to create a video on how to make text slides in Lightroom. The main use I have for this is as a separator between types of image in a Slideshow. While the post was done on my personal Lightroom Blog, I’m posting it here for all you delightful Lightroom-News readers. The video is in iPod m4v format so Right click to download. Enjoy.
“The normal route to making text slides is by creating them in Photoshop or another similar program. Here’s a little workaround video to getting them in Lightroom directly. For a black background to the text slides, simply take a photo with your lens cap on. For other styles, you could use a photo of a solid colour or texture.
In the Video I use Job Identifier as the holder for the text in the Slides, but you can use anything that is not used by the images in the slideshow. Make sure the text box you use in the Slideshow setup matches whatever metadata you choose.
The video is in .m4v iPod Video format. I haven’t done a video for a while, so excuse any mistakes!”
