Share your slideshow movies

After you complete your slideshow, you can share it with clients and friends. Aperture provides a few simple controls for exporting your slideshow as a movie, in the size and format most suitable for your intended audience. When you’re ready to share your slideshow, the first thing you need to decide is how it will be viewed. The Export dialog provides options for exporting your slideshow as a movie suitable for playback on iPhone, iPod, iPod touch, or iPad; as a movie for the web to be posted on YouTube; or as a high-resolution movie compatible with HD 720p or HD 1080p televisions. You can also output your slideshow movie in a custom size.
