    Lost dad end of September to Alzheimers. I sorted through all dad pics and scanned others in an effort to have a slideshow for brothers and mother.

    My trouble is why I have some small photographs mixed with the correct size photos I wish in slideshow. I went back to catalog and made sure they were 3:1 or fill then exported to another collection and still have mismatched sizes or small and large Photos. Do you have a certain setting that is better for pics I scanned for the 1950's or is it possible? Is it possible to have one size for all photos in Slide room?

    Thank you for any information or URL to a certain site.
    Again, your time is appreciated very much

    Michael, the navigator scaling (e.g. 3:1) only applies to what you see in LR's preview mode, not to the slideshow. Try enabling slideshow option "Zoom to fill frame" to make sure all photo's fill the entire screen; just remember that LR will enlarge those photos which are too small, which could affect the quality of the image in the slideshow.

    Marc,
    Thank you for taking the time to assist me in this busy time of the year. I had tried that and it seemed to cut some pics off. Glad you mentioned it only worked in Preview mode. I will keep looking...
    Thank you again and have a great holiday!
    Michael

    The only other thing I can think of is to export those small photos first in a size that will fill the screen (use option "Add to This Catalog" to add them to your catalog straight away, and make sure to deselect the "Don't Enlarge" option under "Image Sizing"). You can then use those enlarged photos in your slideshow without the need for the "Zoom to fill frame" option.

    Great idea I will try that today and see what happens. What you are referring to is deleting the photos in Slideshow. Then export to Slideshow or catalog. I will watch how I have the frame size.
    Again, Thank you for your interest in the project. Reasons that involve the heart, I find create a strong desire.
    Thank you, Marc!

    Yes, correct. Export to your hard disk, reimport those enlarged photos into your catalog (option "Add to This Catalog"), and use them in your slideshow. Good luck!
