Hi there and welcome
You need a program such as screenflow for this
It allows you to record both your screen and add the image from your camera so you can get yourself and anything on your screen (the slideshow) at the same time.
You can then edit it, and make a movie file from this which you can then upload to your Youtube account.
It is very easy to use and you will see the link I gave you provide the overview of how to use this.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
Ok, sorry if it was not clear, but it does address specifically what you wish to do.
I will try to explain differently.
The program I am advising allows you to record both your screen (so what is on it) AND via the Camera so you
So you can record yourself and what is also on your screen
Then you can make a movie from this and upload it to Youtube.
Click the link I gave you, look at the overview and you see it explaining how it provides this functionality
You cannot, if you want to do this, you need to use a program to both record your screen and yourself and make a film from this. Else I would have told you how to do this within the Mac itself.
If you just want to record your self without mixing in the screen
1) Open Photobooth. The simplest way to find it on any mac is to go to the spotlight search bar in the top right of your screen and type “photo booth” and click on the Photo Booth listed under Applications.
2) Select video and record – Video is the third option, just below the bottom left of the video screen; Record is the red button in the middle that I am indicating here:
3) Start speaking (please not “testing, testing, 1, 2, 3…” please)
4) Hit stop
Upload film to Youtube
As you asked to also have screen recordings as part of this you have to use the software I told you.
Or you can just record directly on Youtube
But again, this does not meet the requirement of recording both you and your screen, to meet that you need to do the initial instructions and use the program I gave you
to incorporate the slide show you need to play it on your screen and record your screen. This is a screen recording which you use the software I am advising of as it also allows you to record yourself at the same time.
I know and fully understand what your original question is, and I can only keep repeating to meet the requirements you want, you use the program I have been advising of.
I understand you want to not use other programs but then you cannot achieve what you want.
You said you wanted to record you playing the Slideshow at the same time
"I need to make a movie (myself talking), if possible, incorporate an iPhoto slideshow as is with music, and post on YouTube for my little granddaughter "
I will again explain again
You cannot record your screen (to show the slideshow) and you being filmed at the same time
The software I have recommended is made for that
As I explained you can use Photobooth to record yourself, and if you just wanted to insert a slideshow you can use iMovie, but from the beginning you have said you wanted to record both,.
ok sure, I am sorry I have not been helpful at all but am glad you were able to get your movie made.
Take care and all the best.
If you just want to import a slide show and not present it or talk about it which is what I understood your request to be then

ok, it is helpful you are now more specific on you requirements of only talking before and after the presentation and not during the presentation. And as I advised, you can record yourself with photobooth which you did and saw that worked. But its ok, you do not need to pay for your answer, we have a satisfaction guarantee.
I would say the main issue here was leaving during the question which may have made it hard to keep on track with the answer.
But no problem, I will issue a refund, glad your able to get the movie made.
sure, no frustration on my part. but all the best
No, I have requested one for you.
