I gave you the instructions for the slowdown above, but here is a sample project which shows you the result:

The steps are:

1) Set up your single animation adjusting the speed as required.
2) Use the Keyframe Editor to set up a loop after the last keyframe
3) Use Generate Keyframes to convert the loop into an editable animation choosing the number of cycles you require
4) Again set After Last Keyframe but this time select Constant (to create a hold)
5) Adjust the timing of the last keyframe to create a slowdown.
6) Adjust the animation curve of the last keyframe to ramp the animation to a gentle stop, using either Ease In, or Bezier for more precise control

If you want to land on a different image than the one you have used for the start/end, simply park on the last keyframe and drag it vertically upwards in the keyframe editor till you see the image you want. Holding down shift while dragging constrains the movement.

There are of course other ways of achieving this effect but I suspect this is the most efficient overall.
