Slideshow Print Web Modules
Lightroom has the ability to create slideshows and web galleries, as well as sending images right to your printer. This page outlines how those functions work.
The Slideshow module in Lightroom lets you jump right from the Library or the Develop Module, and show your finished images on screen. Slideshow also lets you export a group of images as a PDF, or to create a video (useful for Time Lapse and other sequences). The movie in Figure 1 outlines the tools in the Slideshow Module. Figure 2 demonstrates how to play a slideshow or output a PDF or video file from the Slideshow module.

The Print Module allows you to print a single image or a set of images. These can be one-to-a-page, or in a sort of contact sheet manner. The movie in Figure 2 outlines some of the settings in the Print Module. Note that some settings may be specific to your printer, and will require additional research on your part.

The Web mudule allows you to create and upload a self-contained website of a group of images. You have control over images size, colours and some of the layout options. The Web Modue can create either a simple HTML gallery, or one that is built in Flash for more slick dissolves between images. Web galleries are generally used more for proofing than final delivery, bit sometimes the only deliverable required is a web presentation of the photos. The movie in Figure 3 outlines the controls in the Web Module.
