    A slideshow is nothing without adding smooth transitions between slides. Creatopy's online slideshow software has the Magic Animator feature that allows you to choose transitions such as bounce, hit, drop, alpha, and many more.

How long should a photo slideshow be?

To create an engaging image slideshow, try not to use too many images, so you avoid boring your audience. The key to a successful design is all about using compelling visuals. Also, people need a few seconds to look at an image. This means that you should allow 3-4 seconds per image, which will allow you to show 10 to 15 images per minute. Keep it short and simple.

How many photos should a slideshow have?

It depends on its purpose. Usually, it would be best if you left 3-4 seconds per image, which translates into 10 to 15 images per minute. Try not to make your presentation longer than 10-15 minutes to avoid losing your audience’s interest. This general rule of thumb allows you to include anywhere between 100 and 225 images per design, so choose them carefully to make people want to watch the entire presentation.

How do I make a good video slideshow?

A good video slideshow starts with a great template. You can create one yourself or use a tool that has slideshow templates ready to use. It’s important to use smooth transitions or effects that go well with the design's theme. Use high-quality images or videos, add elements like icons or shapes, and spice it up with the right background music.
