If you’ve ever wanted to quickly create a slideshow from a sequence of images in Photoshop, start in Bridge and select your images. (Ideally, the images that you select in Bridge should be at the correct size and in the order that you want them to be in your slideshow.) Then, choose Tools > Photoshop > Load Files into Photoshop Layers.
In Photoshop, select all of the layers by choosing Select > All Layers – or use the shortcut Command + Option + A (Mac) | Control + Alt + A (Win). Then, to reverse the order of the layers, choose Layer > Arrange > Reverse. (For some reason, Photoshop loads the layers so that the first layer ends up at the top of the layer stack, which is most likely the reverse order that you intended).
In the Timeline panel, click Create Video Timeline. This adds all of the selected layers to the Timeline.
In the Timeline panel, click the filmstrip icon and choose New Video Group From Clips. This will sequence all of the photographs, one after another, in the timeline.
Add audio by clicking the Musical Notes icon on the Timeline and selecting Add Audio. Trim the audio clip if necessary.
Choose File > Export > Render Video and select the desired preset from the list or enter your own custom values.
Of course, if you’re working with Lightroom, you can create a video using the Slideshow panel, however if you want to use Photoshop’s tools (such as adjustment layers, Smart Filters, and animated layer masks), to enhance the images, then Photoshop is a great way to get your feet wet without learning another program.
And don’t worry, if you decide to get more “involved” with video and motion graphics, then Premiere and After Effect will be waiting for you. : )
