Collect the photos

It’s a good idea to pick the best photos from an event, and put them in some kind of order. Or simply take some high quality pics if you want to make a slideshow about, let’s say, your favorite music bands. Then load the photos into the slideshow program, either one by one, or add the whole folder with a single click. You don’t want to overload your project with too many photos: slideshow that goes for about 5-7 minutes will keep your audience focused and happy.

Introduce your project

SmartSHOW 3D has a nice collection of subtitles and title slides. It’s very convenient as you still need to give your audience a bit of information of what they are about to see. Look through the templates, both animated and static, and pick the most suitable one. Of course you can edit any template or slide: simply double-click on the slide to open the editor. Here you can add different layers – photos, cliparts, text captions (including 3D), and apply animation to any object. That means, you can make them rotate, move, fly away etc. in any dimension at a certain moment that you pick yourself.

Add effects and music

Enjoy adding cutting-edge 3D special effects and transitions to your project. There are 100+ different presets for any slideshow, mild and mellow, fast-paced and aggressive, etc. You can easily preview any effect before applying, that’s very convenient if you want to pick the best ones. It’s really important, because the overall look of the slideshow can be easily destroyed with improperly chosen special effects. When you’ve picked the templates, simply drag them to the corresponding slots on the timeline.

Effects you can use in your project


A slideshow without music is simply boring, so don’t forget to hit on the Music tab. Here you can add some tunes, cut them if needed, and synchronize the music with the slides’ duration. When you’re done editing your project, it’s time to make a video slideshow.
