Slideshow Creator: Create Slideshows With Audio & Transition Effects

Slideshow presentations have become quite mainstream during the past few years. If you go to professionals for getting a slideshow made with music from pictures of a party or a wedding, they usually charge you some serious amount of money. With the amount of time people spend on social networking websites, they have become the main portal for sharing photos with each other. Social networking services like Facebook and Google+, and the now obsolete MySpace and Orkut, have been mostly used for one thing – Photo Sharing. These days, pictures of any event, both important and unimportant, are uploaded to a person’s social account almost in real time. Some days ago, we covered PhotoPixar, a slideshow creator for Windows that lets you create slideshow of photo albums in minute with effects, audio and captions.

If you want to quickly create a slideshow without the added frames out of your selected images, along with audio and transition effects, try Bolide’s Slideshow Creator. Not only is it so user-friendly, but also contains sufficient options to create slideshows in a flash. Read on to find out more about the application. Read More
