The Transition Options inspector lets you select type, duration, and other parameters for the transitions between slides. To change the transition for multiple slides at once, select the slides in the Storyboard/Timeline and choose the desired transition type in the inspector. Depending on the chosen type, additional parameters are shown as appropriate.
Choose from a list of several transition categories. Many transitions can be customized with additional parameters.
Creates a wipe effect between the outgoing and incoming slide. Parameters are softness (0%-100%) and angle (0°-360°). Softness 0% creates hard edges, while 100% produces a soft edged effect that almost looks like a dissolve.
Creates a ‘clock-like’ wipe effect between the outgoing and incoming slide. There is one additional parameter: direction, which can be left (counterclockwise) or right (clockwise).
The incoming slide pushes the outgoing slide out of sight. You can choose the direction of the slide effect in 90° increments (up, down, right, left). The 3D option first pushes the image away before moving it over.
Creates an effect similar to flushing the outgoing slide down the toilet. There is one additional parameter: direction, which can be left (counterclockwise) or right (clockwise).

The images of the outgoing and incoming slides are displayed on the faces of a cube. The transition rotates the cube, so that the current slide is moved out of sight, while the next slide is moved into sight. You can choose the direction of the slide effect in 90° increments (up, down, right, left).
Drag the Duration slider to set the time that the transition will take to complete. Changing the transition duration does not change the total duration of the slideshow. In Timeline view, you can see the width of the transition interval updating in real-time.
Depending on the type of transition, you may get more options. Use these parameters to further customize your transition.
