How to make a slideshow

  • 1

    The right size is the key

    With Creatopy’s free slideshow maker, you already have a preset size. Therefore, the slideshow size will fit your website or your blog perfectly and will nicely complement it. However, if you’re not pleased with the size available in the app, you can easily create your custom size.

    Select a template or a blank canvas

    To lower the creation time of a design, choose to start with a template. Our picture slideshow maker has professional templates created by our designers and ready to be used for your needs. If you are not pressed by time, you can always choose to start with a blank canvas and upload your own photos.

    Personalize the slideshow

    You can customize each photo from your design using our photo slideshow maker. This is the part where you can let your imagination bloom. The Elements library is ready to explore, and it’s where you can find stock photos and videos, illustrations, icons, shapes, buttons, and clipping masks for your visual elements. Our slideshow creator offers you the chance to insert audio for all the slideshow presentations. You can write text using our preset typography feature, or if your brand has a font, you can import it, save it in a brand kit, and use it for all the slides.

    Add smooth transitions

    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. You can choose to add the same transition to all the slides or have fun making the slideshow unpredictable by selecting different ones.

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.
