CREATING SLIDESHOWS - Your Tips, Software and MUSIC!
« on: August 13, 2014, 10:55:21 AM »
Another thread just popped up asking about slideshow software.  This reminded me that I've been meaning to ask the CR community...

-  Favorite Authoring Software?  (ProShow, PicturesToExe, etc),
-  Tips on making a great slideshow and most important...
HOW/WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR MUSIC?  The music part has always been my biggest challenge.  I am usually interested in fast paced rock/pop music because my slideshows are about youth summer camps, etc and need to convey energy, fun and excitement.

I use ProShow Gold & Producer and I want to give PicturesToExe another try sometime when I have the time.  Any other winners out there?
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

Do you use animoto?  It looks pretty interesting.  I'm wondering if it would be a good fit for our scout troop (non-profit) for the scouts to use to create videos.

Yes i do...  Here's a slideshow i've done with animoto, my daughter is in the hospital so this slideshow is still being added to as a tribute to her time there so it is not finalized...  you have hundreds of songs/genres... can add multiple songs, etc... vimeo.com/102168544
