Free Slideshow Maker
Free Slideshow Maker is a compact tool that is able to create a video slideshow with just a few clicks. You just need to select the images that you want to include and click one button in order to generate the slideshow.
If you think that you need a video editor for creating a video from a set of images, you have not tried the Free Slideshow Maker. This application allows you to process all your images in just a few minutes.
The interface is easy to use and allows you to select the images and audio files that you want to use. It supports JPEG and bitmap images and allows you to use MP3 or WAV files for the soundtrack.
You can fine tune the output file by specifying the frame rate and the size of the video which comes in handy when you create the slideshow for larger displays. Unfortunately it cannot generate images above 1280x960 and only supports the 4:3 aspect ratio.
When creating the video the program automatically adds a transition effect between the images. Although the app includes more than sixty animations, it does not allow you to choose which one you want to use for one of the images. You can either use a random effect or the same transition between all the photos from the video.
In our tests, the program required insignificant resources and had no impact on the computer performance during the four minutes required to create a one hundred image slideshow.
If you are looking for an quick and easy way to create a slideshow from your vacation photos, Free Slideshow Maker is the right tool for the job.
