Quick Tips: Quick Tips: Photo viewing on an iPod Nano

1:07 /

Did you know you can use your iPod Nano for viewing photos and making slide shows set to music? Here's how!

>> Hi, I'm Molly Wood, and here's a quick tip for using your iPod Nano as a photo viewer. Now, you can't watch videos on your iPod Nano, but you can load up a photo slide show and set it to music. Here's how to do it if you're on a PC. Now, there are ways to do this automatically using either iTunes or Photo Shop, or Photo Shop Element if you're on a PC, but I like the manual way because it's pretty easy. First, you just plug in your iPod Nano and open iTunes. Select your Nano in the source pane and then click the Photos tab. Click Sync Photos From, and then select Choose Folder and pick the folder where you're storing your pictures. Now, just click Apply. To look at your transferred photos, just choose Photos, Photo Library, or you can view a little photo slide show. Just click Photos, Slide Show Settings, and customize how you want the slide show to appear, including what music you want to play behind it. Then just choose your photo album and press Play. The standard music controls will control the playback of the slide show too. That's it for this iPod Nano Quick Tip. I'm Molly Wood at cnet.com.
