I think using different terms than v.1.9 series would better distinguish slide features.

SlideMaker for the versatile one (with edit list, pictures and music, etc.)
Slideshow for common navigation function.

Ok. It is that I follow the small function more . As was done with many icons, maybe these terms would be cosmetically better:

Play images
Slide creator

Slideshow either overstates or understates function so it makes as a better description than a label to me. No problem.

I personally distinguish between a "slide" and a "slideshow".
  • • A slide is a single element of a slideshow. A slide includes an image and its transition/audio effects etc.

    • A slideshow is a sequence of slides.
So, a slidemaker would make individual slides, and a slideshow maker would assemble the slides into a sequence.

IMO it is indeed already correct to say "Slideshow" in the Tools menu.
