Set the Romantic Mood

The first step in making a Valentine’s Day slideshow will be to choose pictures and video clips that display your loved one and you in the happiest moments of your lives. Whether it is a photo set or a video collection, it should be uplifting and romantic. Your choice is not limited by soppy images, though – the theme of your future slideshow present depends on the couples’ hobbies and interest. Arrange the chosen elements on the Storyboard, and then think about creative ways of funking them up.

Choosing photos for your Valentine's Day card

Adorn Your Valentine’s Day Card

It is impossible to imagine some Valentine’s Day gift that is not decorated with red hearts and bright ribbons. That is why you would probably like to spice up your slideshow with embellishments like this. Luckily, SmartSHOW 3D software is equipped with dozens of built-in tools to create cute effects. For example, a set of themed templates and animated collages will help you make a perfect holiday video card fast and easily.

Applying romantic effects

If you have not found a suitable slide style, you can always create the desired effects with your own hands. Switch to the Animation tab and play with pre-designed templates to make one-of-a-kind animations. Do not forget about transition effects as they make the change of slides smooth and improve your skills of a visual storyteller.

Let the Music Express Your Feelings

Your Valentine’s Day slideshow will not do without lyrical music, so be careful when choosing your soundtrack. It can be a special tune describing some moment of your relationship or a melody you heard in a romantic movie. The point is to find the kind of music that will bring the tears of joy to the eyes of your significant other. What is even better, you can record voice comments and tell the most touching love story yourself!
