While the slideshow is playing, you can tap the screen to be greeted with further customizations for your slideshow including different moods from the included music, Add custom music, change titles and duration. You will be prompted to Create a Memory for this slideshow yet you will be bale to save this new slideshow with just pictures of the featured person.


This is a great new feature for the mobile version of Photos as this feature was prominent within Apple’s iPhoto and was definitely used to great extent by many users. It is especially useful for quick reference to your iPhone’s photo library when you wonder if you have a photo of a specific family member. A few quick taps into Photos will quickly show you anyone you may have photographed and allow you to identify the photo you’re searching for quickly.
