I play photos from my computer iphoto library on tv. I select album I want to play but It doesn't play it in order the same as I set up in my computer's iphotos album but it already mixed up one portion to another portion of album (I saw it on tv these pictures) and play in that order (I did not turn shuffle on) why? how can I change the length of time for ea picture like 4 seconds to 7 seconds ..etc? thanks

    Welcome to the Apple Community.

     

    You need to re-sort the photos in iPhoto, I can't remember whether the Apple TV uses the date or the filename to order the photos, whichever it is you'll need to batch process them in iPhoto to the order you want.

     

    You can alter the slide duration in the slideshow settings.

    My slides are still in order, I have always had them ordered as explained hereinbefore.

     

    In the thumbnail view when you select a photo album there are two buttons in the top right corner, choose the one that says slideshow. Scroll down and select classic or Ken burns then change the slide duration.

    You might try changing the file name too, as I said I can't recall which of these it uses.
