Slideshow Presentations

Published by TheJenalleeShow on

Awe yes… the tried and true slideshow presentation that appears at all big events in our lives from graduation parties, to weddings, to end-of-year school presentations has become a staple in each of our lives.

We all create slideshows, view them, enjoy them, loathe them, and laugh at them.

So the question is, what are you using to create them?

We use a lot of tools to create slideshows!

Some for the bling of the slideshow.

Some for ease of creation.

Some for publicity.

There are many different reasons we use particular tools! Here are 3 tools we use for these specific reasons.

3️⃣Slideshow Creation Tools

For the BLING 💎

Have you seen the Canva Slideshow Templates? They are AMAZING, EASY to create, and FREE! There are over 5,300 photo video slideshow templates for you to peruse and use!

1️⃣ Simply select the slideshow template of your choice

2️⃣ Upload your photos

3️⃣ Drag your photos into the template

and whala, you have a slideshow ready to go! Now you might be saying, “But wait, what about music?” No need to fear, music is already added to many of the templates! Don’t like the song? No problem! Simply select the audio bar at the bottom of the screen and click delete. Click the more button on the left-hand side toolbar, select audio and choose a new song or upload your own.

Want to get fancy? Add all the bling, animated graphics, gifs, or even a recorded narrative with the Present and Record button. All of the magic of Canva is at your fingertips! Enjoy!

For the Ease of Creation ⌚

Don’t have time for all of that? No worries, we have you covered with a fast solution. Did you know that the Windows 10 File Explorer will automatically create a slideshow for you?

1️⃣ Upload all of your photos to a file folder

2️⃣ Open the folder and click picture tools on the top tool bar

Nothing fancy, but done in the amount of time it took you to upload/save your photos!
