How to Create Music Slideshow Video

By | September 17, 2013

Slideshow is a distinctive way to show your favorite photos to your family and friends. By turning the still photos into dynamic slideshow video, you can enjoy your great photos just like watching a movie. Beside, you will be able to transfer the slideshow video to mobile devices like iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, BlackBerry, Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy, HTC, etc. for playing on the go, or upload the slideshow video to YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Dailymotion, etc. for sharing online.

A slideshow without music is much too boring. Add your favorite music to the slideshow for playing in the background, and you will bring your slideshow to a higher level. It is also suggested that you choose the music that best matches the theme of the slideshow. For instance, if you are going to make a slideshow in celebration of someone’s birthday, you should focus on birthday songs such as Happy Birthday to You, Birthday, Time of Your Life, etc. Likewise, for a wedding slideshow, you may select wedding songs like Me and You, With This Ring, From This Moment, I Say A Little Prayer, etc. as the background music.

DVD Photo Slideshow is a pretty good tool to create photo slideshow with music. This slideshow creator helps to make music slideshow video with ease. Besides, you are allowed to apply transitions, choose album theme, specify photo duration and transition duration, set Pan & Zoom effects, add text, insert artclips, and more to personalize your slideshow.
