    I am trying to Email a slideshow I made recently in iPhoto to another Mac user.

    However, I cannot figure out if this is possible. I also tried to file transfer it to her via iChat file transfer, but no luck with this either.

    Do either of these two methods (regular email or iChat file transfer) enable me to send a slideshow to someone? If not, is there any other way I can do this?

    I simply find it very hard to believe that there is no way whatsoever to send someone a slideshow, especially another mac user with iPhoto. :mad:

    Save the slideshow first in Quicktime format, you will have a choice of size. Smaller would be better if you are sending via email or chat.
    iPhoto > Select slideshow in sidebar > File export > Choose size and where to save it.

    Awesome. I'll give this a try and see how it works out!

    After saving in Quicktime format, things:

    1 What will the file extension be?
    2 When the Mac user downloads and views this file, will it open in Quicktime? iPhoto? I'm assuming QuickTime..

    File extension will be .mov and it will open in Quicktime.
