Did you know that you can make a spectacular slideshow on an iPhone using the Photos app? 

That’s right! You don’t need to resort to third-party apps or some heavy PC software anymore to create and edit slideshows for your images from a trip or event. You can use the default Photos app on your iPhone to make, edit, customize, and share your slideshow. 

Here are the steps on how to make a slideshow on an iPhone!

How to Make a Photo Slideshow with the Photos App on an iPhone

Step 1:

Open “Photos” on your iPhone. 

In case you’re new to using an iPhone, the Photos app icon looks something like this:

Using the “Select” button in the top right-hand corner, select two or more photos that you want to add to the slideshow.

From the Photos app, select as many photos as you want to add to the slideshow and press the Share button on the bottom-left of the screen

Step 3:

Once you have selected all the images that you want to add to the slideshow, tap the “Share” option in the lower-left corner of your screen. This icon has denoted a box with an arrow pointing towards the top.

Step 4:

Now, click “Slideshow” from the menu at the bottom.

This will create and play the default slideshow.

However, if you want to make changes to the slideshow, you can follow the steps given below:

Choose from the five different options to change the theme of your slideshow

Step 4:

If you want to change the music, tap ‘Music’ from the menu. You can choose from the default music library or click on “iTunes Music” to select from your personal music collection. 

Add music to your slideshow from the Music section. You can also customize your slideshow by adding music from iTunes.

Step 5:

If you want the slideshow to repeat, make sure the toggle for “Repeat” is on.

Turn on the toggle for "Repeat"

Step 6:

Move the button on the sliding bar towards the tortoise to reduce the speed of the slideshow and towards the rabbit to increase it.

Move the slide button to reduce or increase speed

Step 7:

When you’ve finished customizing your slideshow, click “Done.”

Tap done after editing your slideshow as per your liking

What good is a slideshow if you don’t share it with your friends and family?
