Happy Valentine’s Day Slideshow - Surefire Tips & Ideas

  • Set the right mood with music - Slideshows are alive with the sound of music! As they should be - there is no way your Valentine’s day slideshow would be romantic without a soundtrack. So make sure to add a lovely tune to your video. This could be a sensual instrumental piece, your partner’s favourite track, or undying classics like these Valentine’s day songs.
  • Find the perfect running time - When a slideshow is durable, it tends to be boring. When it is brief, it’s simply underwhelming. So use Goldilocks’ approach and make your video not too long, and not too short. Is there a secret recipe? Well, just wrap your video when it hits a 3 minute mark (like the length of an average song).
  • Sneak in a proposal - Because what could be more romantic? Imagine a tender Valentine’s day slideshow that chronicles your life as a couple that ends with the most important question - “Will you marry me?” Can you imagine the surprised look on your partner’s face? This might be the best Valentine’s gift they have had yet...
  • Tone down the decorations - Don’t dive headfirst into decorating your slideshow with floating hearts and soaring doves. Remember - less is more. Don’t overcrowd your slideshow with flamboyant effects and make them as subtle as possible. Effects should be a graceful frame for your slideshow, but not the main attraction.
  • Go for the right software - Most people overlook this step. After all, how much different can slideshow makers be? The answer is extremely! Some software are user-friendly but poor in functionality, others are feature-packed, but unbearably complicated. So if you are looking for a slideshow maker for Windows 10 (as well as for earlier versions) that is perfectly balanced, SmartSHOW 3D is just the thing for you.
