To get started with this lesson, click on the project panel tab.

If don't already have a sequence, right click in an empty area within the project window and choose new item - sequence.

Choose a preset, give your sequence a name and then press the return key.

Okay, right click in the project window again and choose import.

Navigate to a folder on your hard drive select a folder of pictures for your slideshow, and then press the return key.

In doing so, this will create a bin.

Double click on the bin icon.

This will open a separate bin window with all your photos.

Now, make sure your clips are in icon view by clicking on this icon in the bottom left corner of the bin window.

Arrange your pictures in the order that you would like them to appear within the timeline.

Now, as you will see in a moment, you will be given the option to add transitions between all your clips.

To choose the transition that you would like, click on the effects tab within the project window.

Twirl down the disclosure triangle for the video transitions category.

Find a transition that you would like to use for your slideshow.

Then right click on the transition, and choose 'Set Selected as Default Transition.'

Now go back to your bin window, and select the clips that you would like to use for your slideshow.

In the upper right corner click of the bin.  Click on the pull down menu.

Choose automate to sequence.

A dialogue box will appear giving you some options for your slideshow.

In this example, I'll tell Adobe Premiere to place the clips in sequential order with a 15 frame clip overlap for the transitions.

If you would like to specify a duration that's different the marked area of your still images, click on the Frames Per Still option and specify the number of frames you would like.

Press okay when you're finished.

The slideshow is now complete.  

It's that easy!
