Slide Show Movie Maker is a program that allows you to create slideshow presentations from your pictures. As a matter of fact, the presentation will be a video file in AVI format, ready for playback on any computer. The only aspect to be aware of is that after the presentation has been created, it is not possible to edit it again.
To create a presentation you can use the presentation wizard or manually follow some steps: first, you have to load the images to be included in the presentation (image format supported: JPG and BMP). After the images have been added to the list, you can select one of the images and perform different actions: you can add text to the image, add an audio file to be played during the presentation (only WAV audio format is supported), and select a transition effect. The program includes more than 120 different fade effects and has a Check Effect window for previewing them.
If you are going to add text, you can set the text position on the screen and add a text fading effect. Durations in the presentation are measured in frames, so you can set the number of frames for each transition effect.
