Are you skilled at taking photos with your phone? Do you have some very good photos which you want to share with your family and friends? Why share pictures, when a video would be better?
But you don’t have videos from the occasion, what will you do now? It’s quite simple really, you can create a slideshow from the photos which you have, which will be more attractive than a photo album.
Some people turn to Microsoft Office for this purpose, but that is not a good idea. Not only can this be an expensive way, but it is not efficient. A much better way is to use a specialized software which can help you create a slideshow quickly.
And that would be Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro, the features of which we will be explaining here today. When you install Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro, there will be an option to install the codecs which are required for creating the slideshow video. This is a very good thing, because it saves you from manually installing the same.
The start screen of Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro has a very simple design. There is a toolbar on the top of the window, and one on the bottom of the screen with access to the program’s settings. To begin creating a photostory in Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro, you need to add some photos. You can click on the “Add files” option on the middle of the screen to do this, which then opens a pop-up window in File Explorer allowing you to browse to the folder on your hard drive, where the photo is located. Alternatively, you can use the “Add Photo” option on the top toolbar for the same.
If you want to add all the photos in a single directory at the same time, you can use the add folder option. You can always delete unwanted pictures or add more photos in the next step. You can import any of the following image formats: PNG, JPG, JPEG and BMP, for creating a slideshow.
Once you add some photos for your photostory, you will be taken to the slideshow creation settings in Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro.
This screen has a large pane on the left side, which lists each photo which you added for the slideshow. The first slide is always going to be the Starter Slide or title slide.
Clicking on the time option next to each photo listed on the screen, opens up the timer setting, which will be used for the slide. You can use this to set the time which each slide should be displayed for, before the slideshow transitions to the next picture in the queue. You can set a time from 1 to 5, or 7, or 10, 15 or 20 seconds as the time for the slide to be shown on the screen, between the transitions.
The starter slide in Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro, allows you to enter some text for the slide. This can be a title or any word or sentence. You can customize the font style, color, background color too. The effect option on the text screen can be used to add a transition animation for the text. You can choose from the Cross Fade, Zoom Inm Flip Over, and Wipe Options (left to right, right to left, top to bottom, bottom to top, vertical in or vertical out).
The text position option can be used to place the text in the center of the screen, or anywhere in the borders of the screen. The filename screen can be used to rename the slideshow, and also for selecting the output video format, for the slideshow. You can save the slideshows in the following video formats: MP4, AVI, MOV and WEBM. The text screen is available for each slide.
Each photo has a thumbnail preview next to it. Clicking on a thumbnail plays a video preview of the slide on the video player pane on the right side of the screen. You can use this to see how the photo will look, and the transition effect which will be used when the slideshow switches to the image, etc. To change the transition of a photo in Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro, click on the “random” option and select one from the drop-down list. There are 27 animation effects including Cross Fade, Fade, Pixelate, Mosaic, Checkerboard, Rotate, Flip, Wipe, Stretch, Zoom, and Slide options. You can sort the list by filenames, or shuffle positions, or manually rearrange the order of the photos, by using the arrow icons, next to the slideshow selector pane. You can also drag and drop the photos to reorder them into a specific position in the slideshow.
The bin icon can be used to delete a photo from the list. You can add effects to all photos at the same time using the “apply to all” options at the bottom of the list.
The right pane of Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro, has some extra functions. You can drag and drop audio files, on to the pane to add some music or songs to your slideshows. You can add multiple audio tracks and even create a playlist to be used for the slideshow.
Supported audio formats include MP3, M4A, WAV, WMA, OGG, and FLAC. The loop audio option is useful, if you want to use a short track to be repeated for the entire video. There is an audio offset, and an audio fade too.
On the pane below the video are some options which you can use to change the resolution of the video, set the transition duration, and options for making the video stick to the original aspect ratio or scale to fit the screen.
Before you hit the Create button, use the Preview option to check the slideshow. If you are pleased with the result, click the Create option to save the slideshow. Don’t worry, you can still edit a created slideshow, using the Resume Project option in the main screen of Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro, to pick up where you left off.
The toolbar on the top has a History button, which can be used to view previously saved Slideshows.
When the program has finished creating a slideshow, you will be given several options for sharing the video. You can use Icecream Slideshow Maker Pro to directly upload the video to YouTube, Google Drive and Dropbox. In addition to this, there is a built-in CD/DVD burner, which can be used for burning the slideshow to a CD or DVD disc. You can also open the folder where the created slideshow is saved from the finish screen.
