Even easier: Make an Album of the photos you want to use in the Slideshow, and base it on that. This has a couple of advantages: It simply references the photos in the Events, and uses no ezra disk space, while keeping your Events intact You can sort the photos manually, into any order you like, which you can't do with Events. To make a new Album: select ...

My understanding is that this is due to the fact that the slide transition takes a certain amount of time - the 15 seconds is the total time the slide is undistrubed on the screen and it allows a certain amount of time for the changover - the way to check this is to set the timing to '0' and see what happens :)

I'd recommend iBooks Author. It's freely available on the Mac App Store. The interface is pretty straight forward and you can drag/drop almost anything in it. Check it out here: http://www.apple.com/ibooks-author/

I don't know of any tools that convert from markdown to Keynote or Powerpoint. If it is a simple presentation, that just consists of slides and bullet points, you can import it into Keynote by first converting it to an unordered list, with slide titles at the top level, e.g., - First Slide - Point 1 - Point 2 - Second Slide - Point 1 ...

If you use OS X "Quick Look" you can use right/left arrow on the keyboard and view all of the photo on the same path; but you have some problem yet, "Quick Look" let you view all the file exist in the same path not just photo.

The built in slideshow would work to set the order of photos to random if you've already classified the photos into an album. Just set the delay to a while and remember to re-choose the album to re-seed the randomness if you choose to repeat the selection. If you need to classify photos on the go, you can use the iPhoto app to import / sort / add / remove ...

The H.264 codec that the QuickTime format uses is a part of MPEG-4. To get the best results, tweak the options for MPEG4. Go File-> Export-> Slideshow-> Custom Export-> Movie to MPEG-4-> Options...

While iPhoto may work for some, it doesn't come bundled with every Mac and it's not free. It also relies on a library. The quickest, cheapest (free) and easiest way to view/slideshow a folder and its subfolders is using Sequential. Just drag it to your Applications folder, run it once so it shows up on your Open with menu, right click on a folder, choose ...

Nope, not at all. iPhoto has great slideshow capabilities. Lots of examples on YouTube. No need to involve DVDs; or slow, aging software like iDVD.

iMovie has the "Ken Burns" effect (the actual name in the application!), designed specifically to do slow panning across images that dissolve into others, etc. It's very flexible and quite powerful. iDVD is definitely not what you want. If nothing else, it hasn't actually been updated in years, and both iPhoto and iMovie significantly outshine it.

Make sure you have it set to Preserve Aspect Ratio: Letterbox. Photo in this question.

Albums don't affect the contents of an event in any way, so your events will remain exactly how you left them.
