Try our Slideshow Maker / Video Editor FREE: Slideshows can be great if you want to put together a video of your recent trip, bring up memories of friends or family or if you need to show how the bride and groom met for an upcoming wedding. Pretty much any video editor can be used to make a photo slideshow, but we’ve selected our favourite top 5 photo slideshows to narrow down your choices. One of the slideshow makers we are going to show you today is our very own Filmora Video Editor which you can try yours free by clicking on the link here or in the description box below. It’s a full on editing software that makes it easy to create your own slideshows. Now onto the reviews. First up is…Filmora Wondershare Filmora is not only a versatile video editor, but also a photo/video slideshow maker for beginners due to its feature rich platform that makes video and slideshow development task much easier. It offers over 300 effects and 20+ copyright music which enables you to take you slideshow to the next level. It supports all major file formats and resulting slideshows can be directly shared on popular social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo. Pros: The loads of features make slideshow development effective. Intuitive interface with simple to use tools. It contains numerous filters, motion elements and overlays. All popular file formats are supported. Easy social media uploading. Cons: Lesser number of present templates. 3d effects are limited. Free version leaves watermark. Next were going to look at… Animoto It only takes a few clicks and you can quickly build a photo slideshow in Animoto. Animoto is only an online photo slideshow maker so if you have the internet and a web browser then you can get started. A great thing about Animoto is that is provides custom themes for you like Birthday parties and weddings. There’s a ton of custom themes to choose from. Animoto makes it easy for you to upload your photos and images. You can even import them directly from Facebook and Instagram. Another great thing about Animoto is that it is surprisingly fast when it creates your slideshows. Downsides of Animoto is that the free account is quite limited in features. You can only export out to 360p which is a low resolution. There is also a watermark that gets left on the video when you use the free account. Up next is… Slidely Slidely not only lets you create photo slideshows, but it can also create photo collages and image collections. Slidely is also similar to Animoto because it allows you to directly upload photos from your favourite social media accounts and even Dropbox. After you import your photos you get to select a music track. The great thing about this is that it can be music from your computer or youtube and soundcloud. Slidely acts more like a social network because it allows you to share your slideshows and you can even follow your favourite slideshow creators. One big downside is that you can’t actually download your photo slideshows. You can only watch and share them through the slidely platform. Also the UI isn’t very user friendly and can be slow at times. Now let’s check out…Windows Movie Maker Typically, paid software applications offer the most features but even the freebies can have be great to use as well. Windows Movie Maker is one of them. It’s pretty easy to use so I can see beginners getting the hang of it quickly. It delivers enough features to create a photo slideshow worth watching. You’ve got numerous transitions and visual effects that you can use. You can even record from your webcam and it will be automatically uploaded to Windows Movie Maker. You can also directly share your finished slideshow to your social media accounts. The downsides are that it’s been a long time since this software has been updated so that can be a bit of a bummer. And last but not least is...Magisto Magisto is another web based photo slideshow maker. So if you’ve got a computer, and internet connection and a web browser then you ca use Magisto. Right off the bat I can say that the UI looks great and it has a nice range of themes to select from. Magisto is quite fast at creating your videos. You can upload all types of file formats Magisto like MOV, 3G2 and ASF. One distinct feature with Magisto is that you can create albums and those albums can be collaboratively edited by users that you choose. You can also quickly share you slideshow to any social media channel you would like. The downsides is that the free account limits you to a maximum of 15 minutes in length. You also cannot download the slideshow, you must share a URL in order to get people to watch it. Hope you enjoyed our top 5 picture slideshow makers video. Go and get creative!"
