Over the years there’ve been several occasions when I’ve wanted to compile my photos into slideshows – but I’ve never been particularly happy with the results. More often than not I found that it took me a long time to create slideshows using various different software, and then even longer to try to get it to look the way I wanted it to.
Because of that I’ve generally avoided creating slideshows unless absolutely necessary. However recently after I came back from a holiday I decided I’d give it another crack, as I wanted to compile my holiday photos into a nice little slideshow that I could share and show to my friends and family. Although I wasn’t particularly looking forward to the prospect of struggling to create another slideshow, I decided to use Movavi Slideshow Maker on the recommendation of a friend.
As soon as I launched Movavi Slideshow Maker I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by a clean and modern-looking interface that prompted me to choose between its ‘Easy mode’ or ‘Full feature mode’. Curious to see what the difference was, I experimented with both.
When I selected the ‘Easy mode’ in Movavi Slideshow Maker, I was taken to a wizard that let me set up a slideshow in three simple steps. The first step let me add photos individually or by folders, and then arrange the sequence in which they appeared as well as the slide duration. The second step then let me add animated transitions in a number of different styles, and the third step gave me the option to include music from my own audio files or one of the built-in tracks.
All things considered I could see the appeal of the ‘Easy mode’, and with it I was able to create a nice little slideshow from my holiday pictures in minutes. Honestly I was really happy with how Movavi Slideshow Maker acted as a slideshow maker with music and transitions, as they really brought it to life.
After being pleasantly surprised by the ‘Easy mode’ I decided to give the ‘Full feature mode’ a try. Frankly I expected it to be a lot more complicated, but as I started to use it I realized that it was really very intuitive and not difficult to use at all. Additionally the ‘Full feature mode’ in Movavi Slideshow Maker provided me with access to even more features, including the option to include videos, edit images, apply special effects, insert captions, and much more.
At the end of the day I was really very satisfied knowing that Movavi Slideshow Maker provided such a comprehensive range of features while at the same time making them so easy to use. All in all it only took me a few minutes of experimenting with each feature to figure out how it worked, and I was able to apply it to create a slideshow that I was pretty impressed with. Bottom line it is now my go-to slideshow maker, and I plan on using it to create slideshows more often in the future.
