Slide shows should not be longer than 5 minutes. Average is about 3-4 minutes.
Account for fade in/out time into your individual slide duration. Determine how long you want your audience to see each slide
You can have different individual slide durations
If you have too many slides to stay in the 5 minute window, create two or more slide shows which allows for intermissions in between
