Hi all. It’s the wife’s Birthday so got a minute off to post this question. I have created a short slide show on my Mac and it’s saved as an MP4 file. I have saved it to Photos on my iPad (and across all my other Apple devices) but I can’t seem to upload it to the Forum through Attached files. Any thoughts?

I think you have to upload to YouTube first and then link it into the forum. Doesn't matter if it's Mac or PC MP4.

I wasn’t offered a YouTube option in my Save selection. I do know that 9 times out of 10 YT is the required option.
Ok, but now you have your MP4. Login to your YouTube account if you have one and upload new video then select the file you created. Once uploaded copy link from YouTube then post link here

Very well done. What did you use to edit the video and pics? Very vivid colors.

That’s more than kind of you. It was Air Magic by Skylum. It WAS great but I have established that it is not compatible with Catalina the latest Mac operating system so I am not using it any more. The editing facilities in Apple’s Photos is now very good so have been using that recently. The light was amazing anyway and quite low in the sky. It picked up the turning leaves beautifully.

Hi Twickers14,
Thanks for sharing, yet another beautiful location and you had good lighting for shooting... very nice.
If anything, I think you could have brought the saturation a notch down.. just my own opinion and preference. I'm just as guilty as anyone who tends to over-saturate or over-HDR my shots, and am consciously toning it down now. ..
Keep them coming...
Cheers,
Ranjit

OK will come clean. I totally agree with you re saturation. There is a reason. When I discovered the AM problem I was almost through the edit process with AM on my Mac and then found it went blurred if I zoomed in. That is the AM issue. So....I popped the “finished” shots into the Apple Photos editing mode, did a few little tweaks and then, holding my breath, tried a pinch zoom (on my iPad) and hey presto, as I had overwritten the shots with Photos I was able to manipulate the shots again, so basically they are over cooked but to my eyes still look OK-my little workaround. Hope you’re still with me!!
