When creating a digital portfolio of your awesomeness, it may be a good idea to include a photo slideshow. Your slideshow may include pictures of you so that your audience can get to know you better or include pictures of your work or of you working. For example, if you did a service project, presentation, performance, etc. it may be cool to put a few pictures representing these various types of work on your site.
If you’re not doing a digital portfolio, you may still want pictures of you with family and friends, or, if you’re a business, pictures of products and services that you offer. For example, a home builder may include pictures of houses that he/she has completed or is currently working on.
**THERE ARE TWO VIDEOS FOR PUTTING SLIDESHOWS IN A GOOGLE SITE**
The first video shows how to insert a photo slideshow using Picasa Web Albums. The second video shows to insert a photo slideshow using Google+. Google is always evolving and photo albums that used to be stored with Picasa Web Albums are now stored with Google+. Don’t do both videos! If you have a Google+ account, do the second video. If you don’t have a Google+ account, do the first video.
If you don’t know if you have a Google+ account or not, you can find out by logging into Gmail and clicking on the “+You” button in the top left corner. If you have a Google+ account, you will be directed to your Google+ page. If you don’t have a Google+ account, you will be prompted to create a Google+ page.
Remember to only do the video that makes the most sense for you!
