Hello Chris,

We’re taking a long trip to the southwest to the National Parks and other scenic locations.  I’m using Blogger to save the memories.

So far, it’s been fun, with not too steep of a learning curve.

I’m sure I’ll be taking lots of photos to share with my friends and family, but don’t want to fill pages and pages with individual photos.  

I saw someone’s Blogger blog where you could click on a photo and every time you clicked a new photo appeared in it’s place.  Sort of like a manual slide show.

I’d like to create either an auto slide show that displays a collection of pics, or if that’s not doable in Blogger, then clicking through a manual “collection” of photos could work.

Is there a video on how to do this?

Thank you,
Jean Painter

Hi Jean,

I’d love to see your blog!

As for slideshows … Picasa Web Albums used to have just the BEST way to make a slideshow to embed in a blog. Unfortunately they killed it! Here is an article I wrote about the best alternative I’ve found … Google Slides

Google Photos animations is another possibility, here’s a video on that: 438.GP-Animation to replace slideshows

Or make a movie: 499.GP-Google Photos Quick Movie

Even though it’s the most work – I think the Google slides option is the best.

I finally got the Slide show to work on my Blog.  It took some experimenting to get it like I wanted it, but it will do.  Thanks for the help.
