Understood.. If you want to manually change the order of pictures, and tinker with the settings. Then you need to create a saved slideshow. Heres how.
Select the photos (or an event, a Faces or Places group, an album, or a project such as a book, card, or calendar) you want in your slideshow.
You can always change the photos in the slideshow later.
If you’re in full-screen view, exit it by moving your pointer to the top of the screen and clicking the Full Screen button that appears in the top-right corner.
Do one of the following:
Click the Share button in the toolbar, and then click Slideshow.
Choose File > New Slideshow.
The new slideshow appears in the Source list, below Slideshows.
Type a name for your slideshow.
To reorder photos, drag photos in the photo browser at the top of the window.
To display photos in random order, see Change slideshow settings.
To choose a theme, click the Themes button in the toolbar.
To see a preview of each option, move your pointer over the thumbnail.
Tip: If you use Places to add location information to your photos, you can use the Places theme, which shows maps and the place names of where your photos were taken. You can also change the place names that appear in the slideshow. Select any of the thumbnail images for title slides in the photo browser (they’re black with a T in the center), and then double-click the place name text and type a new place name.
To play the slideshow, click the Slideshow button in the toolbar.
