Charge a Slideshow with Special Effects

If you are still a newbie in photos and videos slideshow creation, you may want to start with “Slideshow in 5 minutes” themes as they contain ready-made templates and animation effects. In this case, all you need is to choose your favorite pictures, and the app will turn them into a cool photo movie for you.

Applying special effects

If you want to go further, though, switch to the Animation tab and create a video slideshow with special effects, including 3D, nature and motion animation. Once you've mastered keyframes and can successfully add them to your photos or videos, you may call yourself a real pro and realize any creative idea. Don't forget about transitions since they help to set the right pace and synchronize your photos and videos slideshow with music.

Add Catchy Music & Voice Recording

Soundtracks play an important role in conveying the right atmosphere and making a highly entertaining slideshow. Go to the Music tab to add some well-known melody or record your own voice comments to give depth and dimension to your creative project. Good news is, the app has two separate audio tracks, so you can add as many comments and tunes as you wish.

Make it Feel Like a Movie with Title Clips

As a finishing touch, insert subtitles or title clips into your video and picture slideshow, so that it looks like a real movie. Make good use of static, illuminated and animated title clips or create your own designs, and add a catching intro and a memorable final to your digital story. Finally, save your project and move to the Create tab to make a video for the Internet, tablet or DVD.

Inserting tital and final slides
